San Diego Shopping Thread - Page 2

post #16 of 27

Personally, I've never found anything spectacular in Hillcrest. There was a shop on 5th last year that had some decent clothing but that shop is now a wine bar so, oh well. I have found some relatively nice shirts at Junc and Crow Thief in South Park so if you're in the neighborhood its worth a look. Other than that its the usual spots at the local malls, Co-op, nordstrom, bloomingdales,...etc. I can't say SD has totally let me down but I do a bit of traveling so I'm able to buy clothes while I'm on the road. If anyone has any boutique recommendations please do let us all know.

 

Has anyone here gone to Ascot shop in La Jolla? I'm looking for a nice pair of daily shoes and they had a decent selection, the people working seemed nice...etc. But I'm curious, if you were going to buy a pair of AE shoes, is any reason to buy them there as opposed to nordstroms?

 

Also around the corner is Le Chauvinist, which is always fun to browse.

Anyone know when the new Zara and Cotton On will be opening at Fashion Valley?

Barney's Co-op in Fashion Valley shutting down. Wouldn't be surprised if Pac-sun takes the space.

Co-op shutting down? Uhhhg, what a shame. I think its one of the few places that has a decent selection of clothing for men around.

 

Question for SD locals:

 

What percentage of your total clothes shopping is now done online?

Ever since discovering SF it's probably like 90%. American Rag in Newport is probably the closest we are to a decent store.

Was walking in downtown La Jolla on Sunday and saw a Y-3 storefront "coming soon" on Girard. That should be fun.

 

Echoing everyone else's sentiments, sucks that Barney's closed.

 

I have to say being in a city that doesn't emphasize fashion can be good sometimes. My trips to Nordstrom Rack and the thrift stores always seem to be more fruitful in SD than LA or OC.

That's pretty exciting news actually, I wonder when its going to open.

 

I agree with you about thrifting here and nordstroms rack, I grew up in LA and still go back often. I rarely found/find anything decent at the thrift stores there. Most get picked through regularly.

 

Just a side note. I've had amazing luck at all the thrift's in Palm Springs. So if you're out that way it might be worth a look.

 

--I almost forgot to ask, Does anyone else here like the Ted Baker shop in Fashion Valley. I actually dig it. I've found some really great pieces. With the demise of Co-op I think this TB may the only shop I really like there.

Recent Shopping

 

I happened to be at Fashion Valley the day that Cotton On opened. Its pretty much an H&M with a pretty neat stationary shop next to it. There was nothing there for me or rather my age group except for some really decent chinos that were skinny/tapered fit. Which this cut normally fits me like a regular cut. So for like $35 it was not bad.

 

In La Jolla, the Ascot Shop was wrapping up their sale. Lots of "OK" suits for sale, Corneliani and some other brand called Pirve, I think its a label from China, no clue on quality tho.

 

The Y-3 store was open. Some really nice stuff. Way out of my price range but if you can afford it, go for it.

 

I passed by a shop called James Grant, their blog said their hours are 11-7:30 on Sat but no luck, it was closed like at 4PM. Looking in the window i saw lots of plaids and denim but not sure what else they have.

Absolutely all of it.

post #25 of 27

I just came across this: http://sandiegoalist.cityvoter.com/best/men-s-clothing/fashion/san-diego

 

Is it lame?... pretty much. But mixed in this "list" are a handful of stores I never thought of looking at,  HIS, Attic, Capricorn,... etc.

 

Anybody think there's anything on the list worth a visit? Even just for a look?

 

I always take a look at Ascot Shop and Le Chauvenist, usually just for kicks, as well as Junc and Crow Thief (close to where I live). They're always worth a "look" if you're passing by.

I've just discovered Joseph's Custom Menswear and Tailoring in Downtown (555 West B Street). Awesome suits and other ready to wear and probably the best tailor in the City. Tell him Joe sent you and see if you'll get a discount!!!!

I visited when I lived in SD in 2006 and wasn't impressed. The best tailor in town is Romeo Singca at Felice Custom Tailoring in La Jolla. I haven't visited in several years, but I assume he's still in business.
