Consistency is key when you want to be a leader within a field—just look at Union Los Angeles. As one of L.A.’s must-visit shops, it’s always stocked with brands that are on every guy’s wish list. You can thank Chris Gibbs’ great taste for that, since he only eyes clothes that he himself would wear. He started from the bottom (at the brand's now-closed New York location where he honed his skills) to get to the top as the owner of the sole Los Angeles outpost. The Forecast catches up with the H.N.I.C. to get an insight into what it takes to run a successful store. Press play above.
