"WHO KNEW THE BEST MEN'S BOUTIQUE IN THE WORLD WAS IN MINNESOTA?"
"Located in a gorgeous building in the North Loop, this truly is a one-stop shop. Everything inside is gorgeous, unique, and admittedly, upscale. The customer service is top notch. The free beer is an added touch. The selection of products are well-curated and brilliantly displayed. I've lived in New York City and spent significant amounts of time in Nashville, Chicago, Los Angeles and DC, yet have never found a store as well curated as MartinPatrick3. Who knew the best men's boutique in the world was in Minnesota?"
-John Mark C.
"THIS STORE SERIOUSLY MAKES ME WISH I'D BEEN BORN A MAN."
"Confession: I have a sick addiction to upscale men's accessories, and MartinPatrick3 is my cozy little crackden. Cuff links, tie pins, cigarette cases, even the neat little travel shaving kits. This is a one stop shop for all things dapper. It's where James Bond would shop if he lived in Minneapolis and was not fictional. This store seriously makes me wish I'd been born a man, just so I could own all of the fabulous stuff in this store. So classy, so refined, so exquisitely badass in a way that Axe body spray aficionados will never understand. It's tucked away on an otherwise desolate block of North First Street, and easy to pass by. Maybe I should have. Instead I'm forever doomed to walk the Earth, cursing my gender and waiting for the day I can afford to trick out my significant other in MartinPatrick3 goodies."
"A TRUE APPRECIATION FOR THE SENSE OF STYLE."
"When you walk into this store it's like no other store in the world. Ultimate selection of anything your heart desires. Whether it's the finest furniture or the cleanest fragrances around, they can accommodate you here. Also not to mention the finest men's suits and clothes, ties, hats, socks! Name it and they got it. It's like a Fred Segal meets Barneys, but with their own twist. I am always treated very well here, they have a superior staff that appreciates your business. Definitely would recommend Martin Patrick3 to anyone out there that has a true appreciation for the sense of style."
"MAD-MEN MEETS BARNEY STINSON."
"Awesome in every way. Everything a man needs from A to Z and extra as well. Whether you are into quirky gifts or shopping for a guy that has everything, you'll find something here for sure. Modern and classic looks with flare that is a bit Mad Men meets Barney Stinson (to paint a very rough picture), you get my point. I could spend a long time here, check it out for yourself. You won't be disappointed."
"CLOTHES FOR EVERY STAGE AND NEED OF A MAN'S LIFE."
"A comprehensive men's store in a way that recalls old-fashioned department stores but with significantly narrower (and better!) aims for each shopper. I've never been in a men's clothing store like this. The store aims to provide clothes for every stage and need of a man's life. One side of the store starts with streetwear and as you make your way across the store you'll find custom made suits and shirts. In between are shirts, sport coats and athletic wear for every day wear. Each section only has a few brands, chosen with some obvious thought."
"ONE OF THE BEST MEN'S BOUTIQUE IN THE MIDWEST."
"One of the best Men's boutique in the midwest, and certainly the best in Minnesota. Gracious, friendly and knowledgable staff combined with amazing selection of stylish apparel and accessories, makes this the most desirable one-stop-shop for men. Thank you, Todd, for taking time today take my measurements for an attire that's not even being made at MP3. You are a gem for that."
"I FELT LIKE I WAS TRANSPLANTED TO A SWANKY PARTY IN NYC."
"Wow I had never been to this store before but heard a lot about it. I came out to a event that they were having for the Scout Guide launch party. Wow! It seriously was one of the best events I've ever gone to in Minneapolis. Everyone was so friendly and the store was set up so nicely. They had so many fun and unique things at the party. Which included a cotton candy machine, photo booth, drink station and more. I felt like I was transplanted to a swanky party in NYC. They also gave alway tons of free books. The store was beautiful and has so much eye candy. I will definitely be back."
"I FIND THE STAFF VERY FRIENDLY."
"I'm unsure how I haven't written a review for my favorite store in the Twin Cities but this place is beyond awesome. When I am in Minneapolis on weekends, this is one of the stores I have in the rotation. Even if this store isn't in your price range, it's a great one to walk around, look at all of the neat stuff, get ideas about what you like or don't like, occasionally score a deal. I find the staff very friendly so you shouldn't feel too out of place. Even my 10 year old buddy loves this place!"
"EVEN THOUGH THIS IS A MEN'S STORE, I ALWAYS END UP LEAVING WITH SOMETHING FOR MYSELF."
"Let me start by saying that even though this is a MEN'S store, I always end up leaving with something for myself...and something that I don't *really* need at that! A paperweight with a monocle-clad dog on it? Yep. A gunmetal picture frame? Yep. A manly-scented room candle? I NEED that. For unique, high-quality gifts for the gent in your life - or your shameless self - this is the place to go. They have everything from clothing, to office supplies, to housewares to refined toiletries, and more. Did I almost forget to mention that they'll pour you a bourbon while you shop? The best."
"I WOULD THEN ONLY NEED A MONOCLE AND TOP HAT TO BE THE CLASSIEST GUY IN TOWN."
"I walked by the storefront of this place on 1st Street in Downtown Minneapolis. I'd heard about the store before somewhere and was intrigued. I stopped in and loved just about everything in the store. They sell high-end men's accessories. If you have to shop for a man, and don't know what to get. This is your place. Cool money clips, cuff links, hats, walking canes and shaving kits. They have a sale going on right now. I got 70% off some top notch shaving cream and lotion. It isn't cheap, but I would recommend that any man who shaves buy a Badger hair shaving brush and use the high end shaving cream they sell here. You get the closest shave possible, with no irritation. I actually enjoy shaving now. I also took a good long look at a formal walking cane. Maybe I'll be back to pick it up, I would then only need a monocle and top hat to be the classiest guy in town."
"THIS PLACE IS AN EXPERIENCE."
"This place is an experience. MartinPatrick3 can be a bit intimidating due to its grandeur, but it's worth it. This review is only for the denim section of this huge boutique-department store-style mens mostly shop with a barber shop and more. My fashionista friend gave my boyfriend a list of current "it" denim and where to find them. Turns out you can get most of them here at MartinPatrick3.
Before getting started we were offered a beverage: coffee? Sam was our guide for today's denim safari. He asked what sort of fit and constitution my boyfriend was looking for and quickly got to work, pulling out several pair for trying. The fitting room was rather sartorial with a 3-way mirror and a fitting platform where you can be measured for tailoring (which is offered free of charge). Sam stayed within an ears reach to check on fit, offer suggestions and/or opinions and change out sizes. He also educated us on the difference brands and cuts and how they would wear over time. Check out was very easy, and we were offered cold bottles of water. Over all a great experience. We will be returning."
"OUR ONLY STOP FOR MENSWEAR AND ACCESSORIES NOW AND EVER."
"We came in once while window-shopping in the North Loop and immediately knew that we'd be back multiple times...next thing you know, we're getting a tux fitted for our wedding, then a jewelry box, then some jeans, some greeting cards, some accessories, and the list goes on (and will continue to go on). But most importantly, Todd turns your everyday shopping experience into a memorable, customized one. No one (male or female) likes jean shopping, and Todd made it simple. You know he genuinely cares about his customers - ensuring that they walk out the door feeling that much more debonaire and confident. MartinPatrick3 and their wonderful staff, like Todd, are the reason this is our only stop for menswear and accessories now and ever."
"I'D LOVE TO JUST MOVE INTO THE SHOP AND LIVE AMONG ALL OF THEIR BEAUTIFUL PRODUCT!"
"I just discovered MartinPatrick3 and the place is AMAZING! I'm just going to list a few appropriate adjectives: amazing, beautiful, quality, unique, classy, enjoyable. The customer service and the staff are also first rate. I'd love to just move into the shop and live among all of their beautiful product! My only complaint is that I wish I'd discovered these guys before today. I'll be back."
"I HIGHLY SUGGEST CHECKING THIS PLACE OUT TO FIND SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT, A LITTLE QUIRKY."
"If Roger Sterling was real, alive, and living in Minneapolis, I'd like to think he would shop here. They have a great selection of all types of things in a very cool layout. If you're a man (or shopping for a man) with any interest in menswear, I highly suggest checking this place out to find something a little different, a little quirky. They just totally renovated the place and it looks awesome. They carry some really awesome nationally known brands (Jack Spade-check out their dopp kits, JW Hulme-a local brand, Naked and Famous for selvedge denim) as well as some smaller brands. I had been looking for a braided brown leather belt for the longest time and finally found one here, that was perfect. The watch selection is amazing and a lot of them are really reasonably priced. They also seem to have a great selection of things to gift- books, bar sets, etc. MartinPatrick3 has sales seasonally, so be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram (I'm partial to their Instagram, because they post cool shots of new things they're carrying.)"
"I WISH THAT THE MARTINPATRICK3 STAFF COULD JUST ART DIRECT OUR ENTIRE LIVES."
"My favorite boutique in Minneapolis (and they don't even sell dresses or lipstick! Can you believe it?) I absolutely love this curated store and could spend hours looking at everything from trousers to sofas and from tie clips to leather bags, stopping in between to smell soaps and snack on chocolate covered peanuts. The people who run MartinPatrick3 really know how to make customers feel special. My husband has bought a few really nice suits and pairs of shoes here and they always roll out the red carpet, serving him Johnny Walker as they make chalk prints on the trousers. Seriously. We always leave feeling like a way poorer version of JayZ and Beyonce. It's the first place I go to get him any gift: belts, pocket squares, books, bar tools, shoe laces, high-end grooming supplies. I wish that the MartinPatrick3 staff could just art direct our entire lives."
"THIS PLACE HAS A GREAT SELECTION IN VARIOUS PRICE RANGES WITH QUALITY BRANDS."
"I had a great experience at Martin Patrick3. The associate, Nick, was very knowledgable and friendly. What I liked most is the fact that I never once felt pressured into buying, which is something I've rarely encountered when shopping. This place has great selection in various price ranges with quality brands. I wish there was a store in Los Angeles, where I live, so I could shop there more often."
"ESSENTIALS FOR MANKIND, INDEED."
"After brunching across the way, I wanted to stop in and look at the furniture store which led us to MartinPatrick3. "Essentials for Mankind"... indeed. This will be our new go to place for our hard to buy for "NYC boys" gifts. The store is laid out so nice and art directed with class and style. Both of the gentlemen working there were very helpful, friendly and made us aware of the sale going on. Informative in a non-overly intrusive way. We were both thoroughly impressed with the selection and the store overall."
"WHERE FASHIONABLE MEN GET THEIR JOLLIES AND WHERE UNFASHIONABLE MEN LEARN HOW TO BE FASHIONABLE."
"MartinPatrick3 makes me wish I were a boy. This oasis of menswear and accessories is where fashionable men get their jollies and where unfashionable men learn how to be fashionable. No matter how hard you look in this North Loop man-tique, you will not be able to find anything that isn't super-cool.
The designer duds?
The Marc Jacobs satchels (or man-purses, whatever you wanna call them)?
The high-end shaving products?
The cocktail and cigar supplies?
The fancy pens and business card holders?
The dapper bowties and vintage cuff links?
The other day, I bought a serious leather belt for my boyfriend that is most definitely too cool for him and too expensive for me. It was made in Portland and it looks like it will age much more gracefully than his other belts that are falling apart at the seams. It was $85 and I have no regrets about it. If you do have regrets about anything, make sure you take your purchase back within 15 days!"
"THIS PLACE WOULD PERFECTLY FIT IN NYC'S SOHO."
"This place would perfectly fit in NYC's Soho. A perfect selection of clothes, shoes and miscellaneous toys for yourself or gifts for someone else."
"THE SELECTION IS QUITE ROUNDED."
"MartinPatrick3 is quite possibly one of the very best men's purveyors of fine curated goods. I know, because, I have spent a lot of time scouring men's boutique's in major US and Canadian cities. It's no "UnionMade' of SFO (for apparel) or 'Hickoree's Hard Goods Store' in Brooklyn for hard goods, but somewhere in between. One of it's biggest strength's is that the selection is quite rounded. Fine well-fitting Italian formal pants, men's bar essentials, excellent haberdashery, good bag collection peppered with small eccentric and some not-so-useful items. It's got a very good rewards program and they will take returns with no quarrel or attitude, which is the principal reason I have comfortable spent many $$ there knowing that I can return an unused item if I did a second take on it in a few days. All in all an excellent store that I would never want to see go out of business."
"I AM TOTALLY WOWED."
"I came in on my boyfriend's suggestion to pick up a father's day present and I am totally WOWED. The salesperson walked me through the entire cuff-link selection very patiently as I hemmed and hawed and tried to find something for my very not-flashy and not-metro dad. But in the end it payed off. I found him a pair of subtle cuff-links that he might actually wear and also a few other vintage pairs that I may come back for myself. They have a great selection of pocket watches too! I love this store and the employees were really nice and laid back. They worked with my budget and helped make it work. Highly suggested."
"THIS PLACE IS SO CUTE AND TRENDY THAT I WISH I WORE BOW-TIES."
"This place is so cute and trendy that I wish I wore bow-ties. I stopped in here after a brunch at Moose and Sadies (therefore already in a gleeful mood), and this place took it to another level! Not just for males, I was drooling over the gorgeous work bags and scarves, and the decor in there itself is worth the trip! If only the pricetag were a little lower, but that might add to the aura? Love this place so much I wish my dad had more than one birthday a year."
"AMAZING MASCULINE AND STYLISH DECOR."
"I heard a lot about MartinPatrick3 regarding it's recent re-location so eventually I decided I couldn't take it anymore and decided to try it out for myself. From the moment I walked in I was taken back by not only the friendly staff but the amazing masculine and stylish decor. Note I had never been in MartinPatrick3 before (even at it's previous location) so this was an entirely new experience for me. They have a small assortment of actual men's clothing but the high-end accessories more than compensate. Everything from bow ties (my personal favorite) to cufflinks to wallets to coffee table books and beyond makes up this space. One of my personal pet peeves of shopping is being torturously greeted by the annoyed sales associate or being completely ignored all together but not here. The staff was friendly and helpful and answered all my questions with ease. This place absolutely gets my stamp of approval as I know I will be stopping back again and again. Now if only I had an endless supply of money to complete my growing bow-tie collection....maybe someday."
"THE STORE WAS WARM IN A HUNT CLUB KIND OF WAY."
"Spent Saturday on a shopping tour for Husband. It was a beautiful day, so I didn't mind popping into small stores around the city - especially since his attention span in stores is short and he manages to pepper coffee and snack breaks throughout his "errands". This is wholly unlike my mother who is of the ilk that no consumption should take place until after "the job is done". MartinPatrick3 was on "our list". We'd never been, and Husband has dreams of having a separate living quarters that resemble an old world gentleman's club and barber shop, so this place was perfect. We saw many accessories he'd love to own from bags to valets to hats. The store was warm in a "hunt club" kind of way and I especially liked the bar/checkout area. This is a great place to pickup a gift for your guy, or a good way to get your guy to become excited about shopping in general. We will be back."
"HANDS DOWN BEST LOCAL SHOP FOR MEN'S GIFTS."
"Hands down best local shop for men's gifts! From wallets, to watches, bow-ties, books, bar accessories, and of course, interior decor to ensure his pad is bachelor chic! Love. This. Store. Consequently, so does my dad, brother, and Mr. Right now. ;) get on the email list for events and seasonal sales!"
"I WISH I HAD MORE MEN IN MY LIFE TO BUY STUFF FOR."
"This store is unbelievable! I could browse here for hours. I don't care if that shaving kit is $200 and meant for a man's beard, I will use it to shave my legs because it's THAT cool! Everything in here makes me "ooh" and "aah" and wish I had more men in my life to buy stuff for. Stop in if you are in the neighborhood! Everyone is so friendly and although you may leave empty-handed, you definitely will NOT want to!"
"I LOVE ANYWHERE THAT OFFERS A STIFF DRINK WHILE YOU SHOP."
"If every other men's clothing store went out of business tomorrow, I think I might be okay with it because I could shop at MartinPatrick3 for the rest of my life. This sprawling menswear shop offers the absolute best in clothing, accessories, grooming and haberdashery products, as well as miscellany like books, barware and office products. I come in to stock up on the necessities - Baxter of California products, cologne and shoelaces for my Clark's - as well as the occasional impulse buy (I'm a sucker for the Jack Spade bags they carry.) The staff is friendly and well-versed in the product, and never overbearing, which earns them all gold stars in my book. Plus, I love anywhere that offers a stiff drink while you shop. Great sales in the back pretty constantly, and really, the range of products comes with a range of prices - it's as easy to spend $50 as it is to spend $500. Highly recommended for menswear aficionados, and the ever-growing population of men ditching Tommy Bahama and learning what being well-dressed is all about."
"GENTS: PUT YOURSELF IN THE MORE-THAN-CAPABLE HANDS OF THE MP3 STAFF AND GET YOURSELF SPIFFED UP."
"As a gal, I'm a sucker for a well appointed men's shop, they get all the best accessories. And MartinPatrick3 has it all, impeccably curated and displayed stylishly. Simply the best retailing I saw during my time in Minneapolis. Racks of classic shirts and stacks of hats are displayed next to manly but sexy smelling candles. Cases of timeless cuff links, wallets and ties polish it off. They also offer tailored bags, martini shakers and other bar accessories. An amusing collection of books and other Heffner-esque home accessories are fun to browse. To top it all off, the staff is super knowledgable, friendly, charming, well-dressed and very helpful. Ladies: A great place to snag your man an upscale gift (or a fragrance for yourself... I picked out "Fat Electrician" for myself with its hints of smoky whiskey, wood and dirt) Gents: put yourself in the more-than-capable hands of the MP3 staff and get yourself spiffed up."
