After a long night of whiskey filled dreaming and splashes of ambition, we set out on a journey to provide guys like us with the quintessential men's lifestyle store where the items in the store tell as many stories as the characters that procure them. Isle of Man is a store where vintage leather jackets occupy real estate with models of wooden speedboats, biographies of the founders of cool, and pieces of decor from a bygone era where manliness wasn't a dirty word.
If man caves had walk in closets, our flagship store in the north side of Chicago would fit the bill. Forget the stress of shopping malls. Forget pushy sales reps, artificial conversation, and products with no character. Step into Isle of Man, where craftsmanship and style from a bygone era feels like a breath of fresh air.
When the word ‘man-tiques’ was thrown around, Arthur’s gears started grinding and IOM was born. A man of many talents and interests and adventures, he is the embodiment of the Isle of Man man. When he’s not racing motorcycles or hunting doves in Argentina, he spends his days curating the exact components that make Isle of Man so full of character. He is, to say the least, the purveyor of cool.
Michael combines his fine arts training from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago with his love for industrial design to create inventive installations, lighting, and custom furnishings for the commercial and residential markets. Michael’s wide range of skill sets allows him the artistic versatility to bring together the Isle of Man style with courageous designs in one seamless aesthetic.
Alden, Archer, Barbour, Red Wing Shoes, Woolrich, Duluth... we could go on, but we have a hunch you'd much rather come and spend an afternoon in our space looking for yourself. If you're nowhere near Chicago visit our online shop to browse and buy.
