There's nothing more frustrating than someone who gets you all worked up, then quits before the job's completed. Yes, that statement was about you, every girl who ever lived at Scottish Rite Dormitory. But it's also about Hem Jeans, who now are finishing the job, with Stanton Clothing
Owned by and right next door to beloved denim shop Hem, Stanton is a carefully curated, vintage photo-lined, one-room boutique specializing in low price-point modern casual-wear that complements next door's jeans (by being comprised mainly of matching upper-body garb, not by whistling and saying "Damn, you're really filling yourself").
Things kick off with the town's largest selection of Alternative Apparel (from hoodies to limited edition patterned knits like a brown/yellow crosshatch or red/white/blue striper), then move on to workmanlike plaids and denim longsleeves from Just a Cheap Shirt, zip-pocket polos from Cheap Monday, thin patterned Ts from French Connection, and even more Ts from Gypsy 05, like a gray-scale-on-baby-blue print of hands-in-the-air revelers, who clearly lied when they said they were "too busy" to make it to your pants party.
To further your overall look, Stanton's staff will match whatever catches your eye with Hem denim, even moving between the two stores to bring you selections to try on, a process that'd be a lot less exhausting for their staff if you'd just admit you were a 38
Stanton does carry a selection of not-denim bottoms, including reversible blue/white shorts from Jet Lag, Stitch's army green traveler short, loose-cut purple-interior lined chinos and grey/pink/purple plaid shorts from Park, and neutral herringbone pants from FCUK -- a brand that might not know those SRD girls, but knows it's painfully close to something.
