Consider this the antithesis to all those annoyingly minimalist and techy-flash shops that won't stop springing up. Small and chic for the downtown man, antique shelving from the turn of century provides an old skool flavor that makes you feel like the place has got more history than its few years. Cute sales girls in cutting-edge frocks help indie-rock boys find their size.
Steven Alan's men's clothing is small but stylish: the 10 or so pieces per season all nod to preppy classics, perfect for the casual office worker. Chambray shirts, perfect for tucking in or wearing unbuttoned over a T (we know you can't resist, boys), comfy seersucker pants and other low-key wear hang on the racks. Haircuts by any of the three staff stylists run $35 for men. No appointment necessary, but be prepared to wait if you don't call ahead. Top-notch English hairbrushes by Denman are all the maintenance a bedheaded boy needs.
