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 one of a kind decor from a bygone era where manliness wasn't a dirty word.
Isle of Man is a one of a kind store stocked with only the best and coolest men's goods. Located in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood, walking into Isle of Man for the first time is an unforgettable experience. Our space is unlike any other in the world. Heavily curated stock from brands such as Woolrich, Barbour, Randolph, and Redwing sits amongst our hand made lamps, racks, and art created by our artist in residence, Michael S. Jones. Isle of Man is the only store to go to if you want a stressless shopping experience with access to some of the greatest goods a man can own.

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.
