Because no one's gone wrong following the sage advice to go east, young ma...wait, it's west? Crap... well then, just because they wanted to, the dudes behind AG've closed their similarly named Ballard spot and decamped for the Eastside where they're slinging high-end casual guy gear in a richly appointed old town space watched over by a buck their grandfather bagged in the '50s. Some of their swaggy-est items include:
Will Leather Goods: This South-of-the-Washington-border co. that uses modern techniques to craft premium vintage-ish bags (the military rucksack-style Lennon, a canvas/leather tote for the Tribeca Film Festival), wallets, and other accessories was started by a former TV actor who
once appeared on found another way to make CHiPs.
Clae Shoes: This Cali-based company turns out classically styled rubber-soled kicks like the casual Ellington oxford in leather or canvas, and the Gregory, a perforated tennis shoe w/ leather trim, which Chris Berman apparently wants to be in at all times.
Initium Eyewear: This designed in Cali/produced in Italy shades crew turns out iconic glam designs (wayfarers colored w/ "black crystal", the oversize '70s playboy-ish Minibar), and blew up after providing all the eyewear, excluding patches, for Iron Man 2, something Samuel L. Jackson was understandably furious about.
