With a five-star rating out of two reviews on Yelp, UNTUCKit has been getting positive attention.
Yelper Roopak A., who reviewed UNTUCKit on January 12th, wrote: "As a guy who usually wears Brooks Brothers shirts, I thought the quality was very similar and the fit was much more 20-somethings than Brooks Brothers (which is more 50-somethings). The service was very high-end and amazing. Loved it!"
UNTUCKit is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-9pm, and Sunday from 11am-8pm.
