Menswear is something I usually consider outside of my expertise. While I definitely can spot a well-dressed man, I’m not really in the market for buying men’s clothing. However, my adventurous nature leads me to meeting interesting people who then show me new, cool places. A few months ago, I met Shael. He is the owner of Estetiks, the coolest menswear boutique I’ve ever seen.
As I walked inside, I was floored with excitement. I instantly loved the graffiti art that decorated the interior. Shael features local artists that rotate their work periodically. He also had work by one of my favorite graffiti artists, Shepard Fairey (below).
The merchandise was no disappointment. Neatly displayed and carefully edited pieces caught my attention after I tore myself away from the artwork. The clothes have some serious panache.
No boring t-shirts here! I loved the vibrant colors and tribal inspired tanks.
Estetiks also offers shoes and accessories. If you know someone that skateboards, you must bring them here to shop. I recently got a lesson in skateboarding, and know it’s all about having the right shoes. (I was wearing 5 inch platform wedges. Next time, I’ll have something more practical.)
All this amazing merchandise makes me wish I had someone to shop for! Ladies, if you are looking for a gift for your special guy I recommend the following:
- 10 Deep “Leopard Camo” Field Shorts: Leopard + Camo? Amazing! These shorts are fun and funky. Plus, they can be rolled up to expose the contrasting fabric inside. Also available online
- Stance “Sunchild” Club 200 Socks: Socks make a cool mini-gift because, honestly, who likes to buy socks for themselves? And generally, when you need them, you don’t buy the fancy ones. These awesome socks add a little flare to your guy’s outfit without being over the top. Also available online
