A slice of downtown real estate was the perfect fit for a custom menswear store.

Boston-based Blank Label opened Monday at Market Center downtown. The 1,900-square-foot space at 1360 17th St., Suite 102, is the company’s first walk-up retail store. Store manager Connor Lees helped launch the company’s second store in Boston before moving here to open the Denver Blank Label.   

“We like to look for cities that don’t have a huge custom presence,” Lees said. “We put a lot of pride in the experience more so than just an online website that you look at.”

Customers work with staff at Blank Label to fit clothes, which takes about two weeks to order the first round and make sure the fit is right. From there, the Blank Label staffer works with the customer by email. Customers cans also use their fit information to order online.

Suits from Blank Label cost $750. Shirts are $95 and polos are $80. The store also offers outdoor items like quilted vests and trench coats, and does menswear for special events like weddings.

The Denver store is Blank Label’s sixth retail location and first in Colorado. The company launched in 2010. Lees said it was interested in opening to Denver because of the city’s demographics.

“Denver’s admittedly a bit more casual than D.C, which is very suit-driven,” Lees said. “There’s always room for a well-fitting shirt or a pair of chinos.”

Lees added that while Blank Label does offer some patterned shirts, most of the store’s inventory consists of classic menswear.
