    for all the detroit based area guys, detroit, well technically troy's somerset collection, is going to be seeing an addition of a barney's co-op sometime this year

    it will at least provide another option for the area

    Is this the streetwear-only type of Barneys, or can I expect some dress shirts and the like?

    Co-op is the jeans and such store, though they do carry some dressy designers.

    Also, Prada is investigating the worthwhile-ness of opening a store in the area... most likely in Somerset.. and there are plans for an outdoor mall to go in where the old K-mart HQ is now. That is just across Coolidge from Somerset.

    And there are two H&M's on the way.. one at Lakeside Mall and the other I forget, but it isn't Somerset, Fairlane, Oakland, 12 Oaks... the name escapes me.

    hadn't heard about prada coming

    i read the other h&m was supposed to be located in great lakes crossing, but nothing was ever confirmed other than the lakeside location

    and an american apparel is opening up in downtown windsor of all places (this week sometime); will be interesting to see the price differentiation between the windsor canada location and the royal oak usa store .....

    yep, thats what i heard..

    and i live in royal oak.. and i swear, i never see anyone in that AA store. i dont know how they are in business.

    the prada thing is still an early investigation. nothing set in stone.. but they have been in touch with locals trying to figure out if they have a market.

    ya know.. its funny.. i was just talking about that store with my girlfriend.. we have never been in there... and we have no excuse.. because it is within walking distance

    for whatever reason, i dont really feel like the shopping in royal oak is really worth the time.. we have.. incognito, dolce moda, lost & found, chrome, american apparel, burn rubber (trainers only), and chaud jeans... and i guess thats it, for men... incognito only stocks big sizes and is generally not my style, docle moda is really cheesy, chrome is even more cheesy, AA is expensive retail, burn rubber is cool, but how many pairs of trainers does one person need, and chaud jeans.. is yet unknown.

    I stopped in there a month or two ago and was unimpressed; though they may have picked up some more stuff since then. Talked with one of the owners about possibly picking up Nudies or some other stuff nobody else carried... she said it was something they considered, but didn't think would really sell.

    I'd compare them to Caruso Caruso in Birmingham.

    thanks

    i do have to say that royal oak isn't what it used to be, it's become more of a restaurant and bar party location than retail anything these days but it is what the market bears i suppose .....

    i'll have to stop and check it out regardless

    The area near Lakeside has exploded, growth-wise, and is a bit of a madhouse. I really like HM and so does my family, so we'll hit the Briarwood store.

    I'm all for better stores near Somerset, but how about a regular Barney's?

    By the way, weren't one of you Michiganians going to get a suit made from the Polish tailor near Lakeside? If so, how did that go for you?

    when somerset first expanded and became the 'collection', there was a barney's new york department store (it was a two level store where the current ralph lauren store is) that was half decent but closed once barney's had all their financial problems and had to reorganize and the detroit store was one of the ones that was shuttered

    it was never busy though
    they did have the most generous kiehl's counter for free samples though

    No, but I was interested in the results. I did just have a suit made by Hemrajani during a tour visit to Birmingham. Its on its way back to be tweaked right now..
