Apartment Number 9

Personal Shopping for Guys Apartment Number 9

We were pretty bummed when Apartment Number 9 closed its doors in L.A.’s Brentwood Country Mart (its first, and primary outpost is in Chicago)—after all, it was one of the city’s most reliably on-point men’s boutiques, treading that line of being good, without being too Fashion with a capitol F. This is is no small part because the Blessing sisters have a knack for knowing how to dress guys, in a way that’s equal parts laid back and pulled together. While shopping their site for father’s day gifts, we made a miraculous discovery—they happily do big personal shopping pulls for men from all over the country, and ship their selects over for free. Whether it’s a Paul Smith blazer, Raleigh Denim jeans, or the perfect Alex Mill buttondown, we kept everything they picked. The best part? As they get to know a guy’s preferences and proclivities, they will keep an eye out when they’re doing their buy for the store, meaning their personal shopping clients are always front-of-mind.
