Union 22 X GQ: Best Independent Menswear Stores Outside London
We have some exciting news that I would like to share with you all. Union 22 has made its way into GQ's list of the best menswear stores outside of London, Can you believe it?
Well, we always strived to position ourselves as a store in that conversation and hoped one day for other people to see the vision that we had for Union 22. Looks like today is one of those little moments when we can give ourselves a pat on the back for all the hard work we have put into this.
When we opened our doors years ago, I always hoped for moments like this, but seeing our name in GQ... well, it's a pinch-me moment. It's not every day you get a nod from one of the top men's publications in the world. It feels like a small bit of appreciate from the experts in the industry for the late nights, and the unwavering dedication to building Union 22 into what it is today.
Since the feature, we've seen some wonderful things happening. From well-wishers dropping by to congratulate, to new faces curious to see what GQ was raving about. And while this attention is undoubtedly flattering, it's also a nice reminder of our journey and the community that's been with us from the start.
I want to take a moment to send out a massive thank you. To those of you who've been with Union 22 since our early days, to those who joined us somewhere along the way, and to our newest members - thank you from the bottom of my heart. This recognition, it's not just ours, it's yours too. It's a testament to your faith in us, your support, and your good taste, of course!
The journey continues, and with your continued support, I believe there are even bigger days ahead for Union 22.
Dale, John, Terrel & Team.
