If you've been paying any attention to the moves being made to resuscitate Detroit's economic and cultural woes in the last few years, then you almost certainly know of Shinola. The brand—which has expanded its wares beyond handmade watches and into everything from bicycles to leather goods—is on a mission to restore faith in manufacturing in the Motor City. So far, they're making quite the splash.
This past weekend, they took their mission one step further with the opening of an impressive multi-brand sister store, Willys Detroit. It's down the street from the city's Shinola retail digs in Midtown's burgeoning shopping district, and we were lucky enough to get a look inside.
