Shopping Spree

It’s all about the boys as a slew of man-friendly shops pop up all over town:


Buckle Up! Calfskin Monk strap shoe spring/summer 2014 collection, $1,080, at Brunello Cucinelli.

1. James Perse
Based in Los Angeles, this brand is the embodiment of California casual. Their anything-but-basic cotton and cashmere tees, henleys and raglans take a ho-hum foundation garment from basic to bewitching. 40 Highland Park Village, 214.379.2144

2. Steven Alan
Not only can you buy its namesake line of striped and patterned button downs here, this brick and mortar location also purveys fantastic eyewear, canvas bags by Filson, tee shirts and pants by Levi Strauss and leather goods, watches and bikes by Shinola. 3205 Knox St., 214.306.4849

3. Ermenegildo Zegna
Although this classic haberdashery is synonymous with sartorial perfection because of its finely tailored suits, the ready-to-wear line is just as smart. This spring we’re eying their zip front jacket that recalls the simple silhouette and iconic style of ’80s go-to brand Members Only. 46A Highland Park Village, 214.559.4842

4. The Office of Angela Scott
With the arrival of her men’s collection, shoe designer Angela Scott brings her brand of fiercely quirky kicks — the Liam, a colorful striped brogue, is a local favorite — to the feet of sockless fops with a penchant for the not-so-subtle. 2420 Victory Park Lane, 214.965.0933

5. Brunello Cucinelli
If we were going to play word association, mention Bruno Cucinelli and, by and large, cashmere would be the first word that comes to mind. Capture the elegant spirit of this Italian brand with its luxurious sweater vests made from the delicate wool. 46 Highland Park Village, 214.520.9500
