Surrounded By Great Clothes
Kindling a romance at a clothing store really comes down to common (sartorial) sense: If you're preppy at heart, you probably wouldn't jive with a guy who stocks his wardrobe at a slick Euro boutique, right? But a gent who shops at Jack Spade knows his ish. The brand is the masculine, utilitarian, and crazy-stylish counterpart to Kate Spade, and the clientele and staff at the Georgetown outpost are sharp as hell.
Jack Spade, 1250 Wisconsin Avenue NW; 202-333-1905.
We first stepped into Federal when it opened in October, and the vintage-inspired indie retailer continues to be a no-brainer place to find cute, well-dressed men shopping for new gear. The boutique is connected to the skate shop next door, so you truly get the best of both worlds: skinny jeans on one side, selvage denim on the other.
