I love the vibe at His men’s store in the Cedros district in Solana Beach. For clothes that “fit”, this local store is a gem. The store is well stocked on apparel that ranges from some high end denim (Hudson, Nudie and the like) to classic surf brands like RVCA, Nixon, People’s Movement and Pantofola d’Oro shoes.
My pick from the store … This amazing Triumph motorcycle buckle belt.
His is located at 143 South Cedros Ave. Suite K, Solana Beach, CA 92075. Stop by if you are in the area.
The classic Gucci horsebit loafer is now in it’s 60th year of production and is being celebrated with limited edition shoes that are worthy of any dandy collection. Credit Aldo Gucci for the creation of the classic loafer that is equally at home as it is in the office. In 1953, Aldo was responsible for overseeing the design of the classic slip on which included as a finishing touch, a beautiful two piece ring ring and bar mouthpiece for horses. My Gucci collection includes several loafers but none as pretty as the 1953 python in blue that I recently added.
These kicks are incredibly comfortable and impeccably finished. Pair them with slim dark denim for a striking contrast!
The Python loafers in Blue are currently available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.
Denim Doctors is a denim repair shop in Beverly Hills that specializes is alterations, repairs for your denim and a shopping mecca for cool vintage items that the founder has been collecting over the years … Leather jackets, belts, vintage shoes, denim from Stevenson Overall Company and t-shirts.
My reason for the trip to the store … A boat load of high quality denim (Raleigh Denim, The Jean Shop, Spurr, J Crew, Vintage Levi’s) stashed in my closet but not wearable for multiple reasons – seams needed tapering, inseams too long etc. I took a “sample” pair of selvedge jeans that fit perfectly and the rest was taken care of by shop manager Jason and assistant Neste.
The alterations aren’t cheap! Plan for $60 – $100 bucks a pair. But when you get that perfect fit, it’s worth the dough! Denim Doctors are located at 7383 Beverly Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90036.
