World class snowboard manufacturer Burton will be opening a new four-story flagship store in Chicago on the 19th of September. The store will feature the full Burton family of brands, including HYPEBEAST favorite iDiom. Also, since Burton doesn’t open a new flagship store every month, this month they’ll be releasing two Artist 13 Series shirts (rather than one) with local Chicago artists Cody Hudson of Struggle Inc. and Chuck Anderson of No Pattern. Both t-shirts will be available at the Chicago store and are limited to 100 pieces each. Check out Steven Vogel’s blog for more info and some interior shots of the new store.
