Today’s DNR News has a great little article about a one-of-a-kind store in my old home town of Boston. Louis Boston is not only a local institution; it is a global style trendsetter. If you are ever in town, make sure to carve out an hour or so to explore this 40,000 square-foot sartorial legend.
Housed in the old Museum of Natural History, the building’s classic façade belies its modern interior and perpetually ahead-of-the-curve men’s, women’s, and home collections. In a stylistic juxtaposition, Brooks Brothers and Ralph Lauren are mere steps away on Newberry Street. But don’t get the wrong idea; Louis Boston is not about flash. It is very much about substance, classic but current elegance, and exceptional quality. The store even has a restaurant, music bar, and venerated men’s grooming salon. You can stay all day.
I will also be profiling some excellent Washington, D.C., stores in the near future. But Louis Boston should be on everyone’s short list – even if just to stop by and look around and be inspired.
