Blues Jean Bar
Well-fitting denim jeans are that elusive part of the wardrobe that are almost, if not always, impossible to find. Often, you have to toss on several different brands at different locations to find the perfect pair—without a guarantee of success. But at the Lincoln Park staple Blues Jean Bar, the solutions abound. There, knowledgeable stylists can help you find jeans that fit any body type. The store, set up similarly to a bar, carries every cut, inseam and style imaginable. Even the most brand-conscious denimistas can buy Joe’s, Rock & Republic, Stitch’s and Paige. With plenty of washes, surface designs and cuts on display, plan to spend some time trying on pairs and chatting with the refreshingly candid stylists.
