Chicago-based grooming company Chicago Comb launches Model No. 1 luxury men's comb, crafted from high performance stainless steel
October 7, 2011
– Chicago Comb Co., a Chicago-based grooming accessory company, is proud to announced its first product launch, Model No. 1, a luxury men's comb crafted from high performance stainless steel. Chicago Comb Co. and its marquee product, the Model No. 1 comb, are the culmination of years of thinking about art, manufacturing, and sustainable production by its co-founders, Tedd and John.
Chicago Comb Co. has a vision to create products that will be treasured and admired across generations. "Like a classic wristwatch or elegant cufflinks, Chicago Comb believes a fine comb is one of the essential elements of a gentleman's style", said John, the President of Chicago Comb Co. and an attorney. Rather than fashion, which is often transient, Chicago Comb aims to create combs that reflect an enduring style and permanence.
Chicago Comb Co. Principles
"Chicago combs showcase timeless elements of design which transform the commonplace into the extraordinary…elegance redefined. Chicago Comb Co. was founded on the principle that everyday objects should also be enduring works of sculpture and design", said Tedd, CEO of Chicago Comb Co. and a product executive at a Chicago tech company.
"It is not simply the designs which are distinctive. The manner and method in which these combs come to life is original. Alone among comb manufacturers, Chicago Comb Co. employs artisan manufacturing methods which blend the latest technology with traditional hand craftsmanship. Each Chicago Comb begins life as a solid block of high quality stainless steel. This expensive, high quality material is then stamped and precisely laser-cut until the shape and design of the comb emerges", said Chicago Comb Co.'s President.
Comfortable Daily Use:
Each comb is individually hand-finished for daily use, comfort, and beauty.
Made in USA:
"Chicago combs are not the kind of throw-away, disposable product with which people have unfortunately, become all too familiar. Chicago Combs are entirely designed and made in the United States using the highest quality materials. Even the beautiful custom packaging used with our combs is made locally", said Chicago Comb Co.'s CEO.

The Model No 1. comb can be purchased directly on Chicago Comb's website at www.chicagocomb.com.

A list of current preferred retailers can be found on Chicago Comb's website, including Chicago's very own Merz Apothecary, the original international apothecary (www.smallflower.com). "We're very pleased to report that our comb has been extremely well received.

We are working now to expand the roster of retail stores carrying our combs, and to expand our sales internationally", said Chicago Comb Co.'s CEO.
