This corner boutique has a rep for high quality denim. Too small to house great quantity, owner Linda Wolff’s limited racks make up for any lack of variety by concentrating on quality. In this age of the dime-a-dozen designer jean, the store stocks preferred brands exclusively: Current Elliott and Ever can be found in a wide range of colors and weights on the two tables that span half the length of the hardwood floor. The selection's reliability will usher you back to the days when people still asked, "Where did you get those jeans!?" Boutique staples like Michael Stars take care of the compulsory $50 tees. Lone vintage pieces are interspersed with unusual tops and slouchy-preppy outerwear by the likes of Ever.Extra
