A match made in heaven

Out for a walk after a late breakfast in Bucktown, Parke Ballantine and Lena Matz found themselves coincidentally dressed in similar outfits. "We both tend to wear a lot of black, so matching is not intentional—but coordinating suits is," says Matz, who works at the managing consulting firm Point B. Ballantine, the marketing communications manager at Hyde Park Arts Center, was sporting the trench coat she received from Matz on the occasion of their third anniversary, for which leather is the traditional gift. Matz, meanwhile, strutted in stilettos, which she recently began wearing more regularly to keep up with her partner's fashion-forward sensibility. "Parke can take anything," Matz says, "and turn it into a statement piece you'll see next season."

Randolph Street Market presents "Men of March" this weekend!

From the desk of one of my local style gurus and gentleman extraordinaire, Ryan Beshel:

I’ve selected a group of local Chicago makers that all offer a product for men. I think Chicago men have great style – and I want to shine some light on some of the city’s best offerings. These vendors will be grouped together to create our "Men of March" category/section at the market. My vendor list is below: 

   Scratch Goods 
   Knot Standard



This weekend 10 am to 5 pm - more info at
