Q Brothers – We've got you covered

It's undeniable, there's something about a well-groomed man that goes beyond just looking good. He exudes a certain level of confidence that comes from enjoying the ideal shave, attaining smooth skin and dapper hair, and ensuring he smells great to boot. Part of his secret? Turning a dull grooming routine into a cherished ritual with the help of the right tools and products.

No one knows this better than the folks at Q Brothers, the premier destination for men's wet shaving & grooming, fine skin care, and niche fragrance. Whether you're clean-shaven, sporting a killer handlebar moustache, or rocking a mountain man beard, Q Brothers has everything you need to look, feel, and smell your best.



In the beginning

Here at Q Brothers, we've inherited over a century of knowledge from our parent store, Merz Apothecary. This family owned and run pharmacy has been a staple on Chicago's Northside since 1875. With a large selection of natural health products, personal care items, and hard-to-find favorites from around the world, Merz continues to focus on attaining true health through mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

In recent years, Merz has seen the men’s business explode as fellows of all ages have rediscovered the art of wet shaving and the joy of using great grooming products. It soon became apparent that the ever-growing selection of guy's goods deserved its own dedicated space. In late 2014, we proudly expanded and opened Q Brothers; designed for today's gent, our store blends a modern sensibility with old-world tradition and decades of good old-fashioned know-how.
