Just in time for the holidays, I’ve decided to publish a guide to places that appeal to me as a sometime shopper in the D.C. area. As in my holiday guide, if you read this blog regularly and are into quality craftsmanship, clothes and gear that will last you a lifetime, American-made stuff, you’ll probably like the deadbait D.C. Men’s Guide.
It ain’t easy to find solid menswear shopping in D.C., but its here if you look hard enough…and now you have a shortcut! If your favorite spot didn’t make the list, its because I probably haven’t heard about it, don’t care for it, or never shopped or ate there. I’ve also left out the soul-sucking made-in-china-stan retailers, with a couple of exceptions. I’ve also included a few good spots to hang-out, gear-up, and places to get your outdoor stuff too.
Hugh & Crye (online but DC-based)
Gant (Swiss-owned but American-heritage)
