Alpha Gear for Gents
Frequented by the AG-jeans-and-tank-top-wearing men of West Hollywood and Melrose, this antique-wallpapered, two-room shop is a gift-givers’ dream. The store owners just-launched a line of cashmere sweater complements, plaid jackets and striped dress shirts from local brands Orthodox and Trovata, all displayed in the shop’s entryway. Pick up Tateossian watch cuff links, candles and bath products by MenScience, or tongue-in-cheek Calypso cards for your fashion-savvy boyfriend or brother.
Tip: The store carries a number of travel-friendly products like TSA-approved toiletry kits and gadget travel cases.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
