1. Billy Reid – 3211 M St NW, Washington, DC 20007
Billy Reid opened up in Georgetown a little over three years ago. Not only did Reid bring high quality American designs to DC but created a beautiful shopping space in the heart of Georgetown. The clothing selection runs the full gamut from upscale basics to made to measure suiting. Why shop there? Great statement pieces/Interesting collaborations (check out his K-Swiss).
2. Suit Supply – 2828 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007
Whoever says the suit is dead has 1. never been inside a Suit Supply and 2. forgets that Washington is full of lawyers, lobbyists and Hill workers who for them a suit is business casual. Suit Supply offers a great selection of suits in a variety of fabrics and fits that are really stylish for today’s working man. What’s great is their selection has a very modern appeal at around the same price point of many of the local department stores. Why shop there?
