Dress him up at Apartment Number 9 (1804 North Damen Avenue, between Willow and Churchill Streets; 773-395-2999). The Bucktown fave specializes in hard-to-find lines like Seize sur Vingt, TSE cashmere, and Nicole Farhi. Then strip him down at Spa Space (161 North Canal Street between Randolph and Lake Streets; 312-466-9585), where the men’s service list includes a back facial, a sports pedicure, and a special man-hands manicure.
Turn your beer-and-wings guy into an oenophile with a few bottles from Kafka (3325 North Halsted Street, at Buckingham Place; 773-975-9463). The well-curated vino shop peddles many choice reds and whites under $15.
