I often hear it is hard to find great places to shop locally for men. In collaboration with illustrator Nicole Jarecz, we highlighted four style profiles for him and where to shop locally. Keep in mind, the modern man may be a mix of all these style types — if so, you’ll be able to find something at all the shops listed below!
The trendy man is a bit urban refined and not afraid to try the tie-dye trend with leather or even funky denim. He’s into labels but also just good design. Shop for the trendy man at the Somerset Collection in Troy; Détroit Is the New Black, SMPLFD and John Varvatos in Detroit; and Revive and Dolce Moda in Birmingham.
The double-breasted jacket is on trend and always good for layering classic pieces underneath. This guy is all about comfortable classics from basic T-shirts and polos to comfortable sweaters. Where to shop for this guy? Good Neighbor, 1701 Bespoke, Shinola and Will Leather Goods in Detroit; Claymore Shop, Untied On Woodward and Allen Edmonds in Birmingham; Hugo Boss, Theory, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tommy Bahama, Tom Ford and Ralph Lauren at the Somerset Collection in Troy; and lawrencehunt.com.
The full-on track suit is back, along with “dad shoes” — yes, the super comfortable big sneakers worn by dads are now cool for anyone! This guy can also be a bit rustic in style. Shop local from Caruso Caruso, Gazelle Sports, Pogo and Lululemon in Birmingham; Moosejaw and Filson in Detroit; Somerset Collection in Troy; and gettees.us.
The New Business Cool
Not all offices require a suit and tie in this current fashion climate, which means the executive and more traditional businessman can sport the “new business cool.” This look can feature edgy accents, a trendy shirt under a blazer and even softer fabrics during the summer months. Dark jeans can be worn on Fridays, for sure. Where to shop for him? John Varvatos, George Gregory and 1701 Bespoke in Detroit; Caruso Caruso and Untied On Woodward in Birmingham; Somerset Collection in Troy; and lawrencehunt.com.
