Commonwealth Proper's move to Rittenhouse Square is complete. The made-to-measure menswear label began to invite foot traffic into its new, 2,000-square-foot showroom at 1839 Chestnut Street on October 28, along with the proposal of a rather unusual barter: Clients that donate a bottle of whiskey to the CMMP liquor stash automatically get $100 off a purchase of the label's custom, USA-made shirts and suiting.
Unlike Commonwealth Proper's former spot on Spruce Street, the bigger, better location houses a ready-to-wear shop for CMMP's Die Proper casual tailored collection, plus two custom fitting areas, an inventory of fabric, and private rooms for client consultations—which are capped off with a swig of whiskey, of course. Walk-ins are welcome Thursdays through Saturdays, 11am to 6pm. Click through the photos above for a peek at the new showroom.
