And your point is...? No, I actually did not know that. I feel so out of the loop.

How are the Chevy Chase/Georgetown Barney's Co-Ops? What do they carry? Old thread. Old thread. ;/

Edit: Guess I should have looked at the last message more closely. Off the top of my head, brands at both Coops: Nice Collective, Paul Smith, Prada, Ever, Save Khaki, Marc Jacobs, Theory, Nudie, Earnest Sewn, Levi Capital E, Masons Only at Bethesda: BoO Only at Georgetown: Rag & Bone, APC, Surface to Air (at least this season - I've seen APC at Bethesda in the past)

commonwealth in adams morgan is really good if you're in to streetwear, and apparently there's now a stussy store next door

i know they're not big on this forum, but some of the brands may be sought after in europe

they carry supreme!!!!11!!11!!!!

This may be horribly out of date, but when I was there last summer I thought that the Georgetown COOP had a much better selection than the Chevy Chase one.

also at F St and 9th (i think?) there is H&M, Zara, and American Apparel. if you need some basics this is pretty convenient

This is no longer correct. I actually wanted the SSD shirt this spring, and I can't have it

One of the SAs at the Bethesda co-op said they're getting EG in this spring, but I haven't seen it. Good selection of BoO, if you can fit into that shit.

The Bloomingdales in Friendship Heights is about as jet-level as DC gets--Margiela, etc.--but I don't think this stuff sells here, so we'll see if they keep carrying those lines or just let RL take over the whole men's floor.

no worries I will have BoO and many other brands for spring.

in gtown: - MAJOR, KICKBALLERS for streetwear, i'd recommend MAJOR because underdog and dukki really know their shit, plus their combined contacts from years working on the other side of the industry (lifestyle brand development for nike, among other things) has them coming up with some pretty interesting, dc-centric collaborations with companies like adidas and free gold watch. - The District Line, a locally-owned store up Wisconsin Ave. that carries only British brands, they have some nice harringtons, and carry Ted Baker, Fred Perry, Ben Sherman, et. al. and even have fitting rooms disguised behind a pair of opening bookshelves. it's worth a look at least if only for the store's set up. - Tretorn opened up a flagship store not too far away from here as well. - and there's the co-op on m st. it's all right. u st. corridor: - POP! on the corner of 14th & S St. NW carries a small men's selection, penguin, cheap monday, some stuff worth checking out if you want a quirky shirt or nice polo. - redeem and circle boutique, right next door to each other at the intersections of 14th st. and p (i think) NW, actually really worth checking out, i've seen stuff at redeem by shades of greige, yoko devereaux, and b. son, among others, and i'm sure brett's raving review of circle is enough to get you to check it out. - universal gear, another locally-owned shop that specializes in men's clothing, and caters to gay clientele, so while it's true that they have a lot of brands marketed towards gay men, they also have a decent selection of brands such as modern amusement, diesel, and g-star, among others. - off florida ave. you'll find commonwealth and stussy, this will soon be the home of "for the greater good," commonwealth's luxury menswear store, no idea what kind of brands they'll carry though. dupont circle: - there's the new g-star store at the corner of 20th and q, but it's not much to write home about. mazza gallerie/wisconsin ave. - there's another co-op up here, and some more dept. stores, i don't really make my way up here often though since it's not very accessible by bike. there really is plenty more and if i think of them after work i'll add them. of course, denim bar is a given if you haven't been. while mauro's more likely to be in arlington the bethesda store is fun to see because they've got the library style-rolling ladder attached to shelves of denim.

Universal Gear closed up shop. And thank God for that.

no, they moved from 17th st. to 14th st. to a larger location, same thing happened to circle boutique, they moved further away from the stereotypical "gayborhood" and closer to the u st. corridor.

Aaah ok. I just remember walking down the street to Cobalt a few months ago, and seeing the space empty. I know they closed Chaos, but that wasn't any loss, and has nothing to do with clothes.
