Shop Talk: Stripe Men in Santa Cruz, California


By far the sharpest menswear store in by far the coolest and crunchiest surf town in America.

• • •

Name: Stripe Men

Location: 117 Walnut Ave., Santa Cruz, California; 831-431-6182

Background Notes: The men's-only offshoot of the apparel and furnishing store Stripe, this recently opened boutique puts the lie to the notion that you can find only surf, skate, and tie-dye apparel in this beachside college town.

Stock Watch: A well-edited mix of American-made clothing, footwear, accessories, grooming products, and masculine furnishings that includes a hefty dose of refreshingly sophisticated local wares.

Editor's Picks: Nuala leather belts, Necks Tuesday knit wool bow ties, the Sawyer Cabinet Company leather cardholders, and Norcal's own Tellason Denim jeans.

Staff Ethos: As one male employee openly proclaims in his profile: "Socks and flip flops as well as drum circles infuriate me beyond belief!"

—Alex Bhattacharji, executive editor at Details
