HISTORY: Established in 2006 by graduates of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, CSC began as a high-end clothier for the ‘edgy’ ‘hip’ ‘dark’ scenesters but soon developed into an underground community. It takes strength to be gentle and kind.
PHILOSOPHY: At CSC we indulge our dreams and search for new, provocative involvements of all kinds while nurturing a positive atmosphere for the growth of individuality and the love of life.
