We plan to celebrate our anniversary all weekend long during the International Mr. Leather IML/Memorial Day holiday weekend so please join us.

64TEN 21 Year Anniversary
Throughout the years our store has grown substantially and our customers are thrilled with the latest enhancements to our store. We've created a new 2nd floor leather boutique and studio where people from all over the world have trusted our leathermakers with a custom piece fit exactly for them.

Ed Negron Tribute & Street Naming
Ed Negron was such an inspiration to our 64TEN family and the community.  His countless contributions to the LGBTQ+ community and his selfless and caring attitude proved how and why he touched so many people's lives.  Ed was the first person to be named Employee of the Year here at 64TEN and he won that coveted title several times. We will keep Ed's memory alive here at 64TEN and throughout the community as we have decided to name this award the Ed Negron 64TEN Employee of the Year Award in his honor.

We have been working together with Monica Rodriguez (Ed's Sister) to put together the tribute and street naming that will be done in Ed's Honor.  Thank you to the City of Chicago and Alderperson Andre Vasquez for allowing us to honor Ed in this way.  Monica says "I am so glad that this is happening because my brother was all about his community. He has done so much to help others and it's great to know that he is being acknowledged for the great work he has done. Give this man his roses!"

Greg Harris, State Representative says "Ed was one of my best friends, but also a leader in many important struggles, and an inspiration who changed many people's lives. This is an honor he richly deserves"

The Ed Negron tribute and honorary street naming ceremony will take place on Monday, May 30th at 11am at the corner of Clark and Devon.
