Contrary to popular belief, there are other menswear boutiques in L.A. that don’t cater to the baseball cap and sneaker crowd. For instance, Douglas Fir at 8311 W. Third St:

Some gourmet wovens, button-ups, all-around finer men’s fashion.

This is John, who’s held Douglas Fir down for almost a solid decade now. His gigantic desk in the middle of the store is a nice distinction.

…Like Cameron’s razor-wielding technique.

There’s something to be said for a store with character.

Directly across the street is Douglas Fir’s offshoot shoe store (say that 3 times fast), DF Feet.

Again, offering only the cream of the crop in upscale men’s footwear. You’ll be hard pressed to find pastel colors or graphic patterns on these shoes.

That’s Trevor. Again, with that awesome vintage desk. I also admire how they don’t have any computers or credit-card machines at these stores (aside from the old-school swiper thing). It just wouldn’t make sense.
