Arty male style-setters frequent this tiny haberdashery (the antithesis of the Vegas-size Beverly Center mall a few blocks west) for its hip, idiosyncratic menswear. Owner Alessandro Tomassetti’s line of architecturally inspired dress shirts is popular with local designers. Other top sellers: accessories like leather bow ties, gold-rimmed aviator sunglasses, and supple leather travel bags.
Tip: Tomassetti’s atelier is at the back of the store, behind a metal curtain—where he does fittings and appointments on Mondays, when the shop is closed for just that reason.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
