First up, a fresh dispatch of Spring apparel just dropped in store and online today. We’re pretty thrilled about the mix of lighter weights, shorter sleeves, neutrals and color pops of this collection. Hope you enjoy it, too.

Now, on to our second reason. According to the long term forecast for greater Chicagoland, it’s looking like the big fiery ball in the sky will be making a daily appearance for at least the next week or so! For those of you reading this from other parts, that forecast is a big deal for Midwest dwellers. Welcome, Sun! We’re glad to have ya!

And, as if those two weren’t reason enough, we just received the best news of all…y’all have gobsmacked us again by voting Cowboys and Astronauts the “Best Place to Buy Men’s Clothing” in Chicago Reader’s Best of Chicago poll! We’re beside ourselves.

Five years ago, we opened our doors with a mission to offer you a space to feel welcome and empowered to explore yourself. As we continue that mission today, we are humbled to hear that our space, our offer, and our approach to modern retail resonates with so many of you. Thank you for allowing us to be in your camp as you find your own frontier. We’re honored by the love, support, and friendship and are psyched to enter into another new season with you!
