Secret Service is definitely great.

Legion is nice too, awesome people there and their clearance rack actually has regular sizes. Carries EG, KMW, APC, Rag and Bone, and a bunch of other brands I can't remember.

South Willard has BoO, CP, APC, Raf, Dries Van Noten. Worth checking out.

American Rag is pretty medicore imo. Never really seen anything I want there and I think I remember the prices being rather high. Might wanna check it out anyway, they have a few brands that SF people might be interested last I remember (APC jeans, Scotch and Soda, B.Son etc). Theres also alot streetwear stores in the vein of Stussy and Supreme around there if you're interested in those brands.

I'm sure some of the other members will add more, as I don't do too much shopping in real life despite living in LA but this is a good starting point.

^^^ only if Whodini remembers where he keeps the shackle keys

Revolve def should not be a destination spot, but it is near some other cool stores so if you're in that area then it might be worth a look

even if you're not into it, the Paul Smith store is worth going to. it's a great shop even if you dont like PS. they have so much stuff in there, including books, housewares, etc...it's a complete lifestyle shop

I had the same question as the OP when I went to Los Angeles a few months ago. As far as I can tell, the forum's search breaks down on keywords <= 3 letters, so it made looking for "LA stores" a bit difficult. Thankfully, "Angeles stores" was more useful.

I didn't like the American Rag in La Brea for the same reasons shade449 give. I don't know about the other one (Anaheim?)
