about us

We are a family owned and operated company with myself being a fifth generation retailer. My mother is still operating her women's clothing store in Madison Wi, under the name Rupert Cornelius, which began in 1974 as my grandfathers store. 

The first store opened in 2003 as Local35 in the eclectic Hawthorne neighborhood and catered to both men and women. After 8 amazing years, it was time to push menswear in a new direction.

MACHUS opened in 2011 in the centrally located Lower East Burnside neighborhood. We have a simple goal, to sell the most interesting yet wearable clothing from around the world from emerging designers. 

We often forgo working with the obvious larger designers to work with emerging labels. Personal connection is of the utmost importance, and with smaller brands we have the opportunity to know the designers. We believe in every brand we sell and feel that our designers are some of the most progressive people in men's fashion.  

My wife, Juline and I operate the business together with a small crew of knowledgeable employees.
