Calumet Harley-Davidson's staff revs riding enthusiasts' engines in Northwest Indiana and the surrounding area with high-quality motorcycles, parts, and apparel. Specializing in both stock and high-performance Harleys, the service department at Calumet H-D is ready to service bikes quickly using factory-approved methods and equipment. Basic bike detailing keeps hogs in working order ($85+), and oil changes ($100+) and regular maintenance service ($225+) keep bikes happy and less likely to join up with rebel scooter gangs. Calumet H-D also accessorizes motorcycles and their riders with genuine Harley-Davidson parts and merchandise and patriotic performance parts by Screamin' Eagle. A tire gauge and tread-depth indicator with embossed leather pouch keeps tires in tip-top shape ($12.99 in store), and an official Harley-Davidson bike wash bucket with multipocket apron keeps dirt off bikes and in the bottom of a bucket where it belongs. Calumet Harley-Davidson also hosts regular monthly events, including hot-dog days on the weekends where riders can enjoy free hot dogs and a Westminster Kennel Club hot-dog show while they last.
Paco Fernandez was destined for sartorial greatness from the moment he took a sales position at The Custom Shop back in 1973. With hard work, instinct, and a pair of rocket-powered cufflinks, he rose to the top of the chain's regional team, and in 1999, he set out on his own. According to a press release, his first customer was former East Chicago mayor Robert Pastrick, and since that day, Paco's Custom Clothiers has been the tailor of choice for power brokers around the country?and even the world.
The shop, which carries more than 2,000 wool fabrics from designers such as Ermenegildo Zegna and Loro Piana, has outfitted clients from London, Puerto Rico, and Africa. Its high-profile customers include the late Portsmouth mayor James Holley III, named best-dressed mayor by Esquire.
The bespoke-suit shop can fill any clothing request, creating everything from a simple pair of slacks to a full dress tuxedo to a woman's suit. Complimentary biannual consultations ensure that suits continue to fit properly after seasonal weight gain and loss and fashion trends that require a pocket large enough to carry a miniature poodle.

Touting a cavalcade of crafting provisions, C & J Craft Supplies' stock arms patrons with ammo to convert inventive ideas into tangible pieces of art with quality, multiuse materials.

Fashioned from rayon, metallic craft cords ($1.35 for 15 yds.) provide sturdy strands from which to dangle amulets, and 100-yard rolls of braided macramé cord ($9.40) afford fabric weavers enough slack to spin plant hangers, lawn chairs, baskets, or afghans for football fields.
