Brigade This Short North staple is the perfect place to pick up wardrobe essentials. However, don’t be fooled, as the “basics” sold here lack no sense of style. Denim, chinos, oxfords and casual dresses by cutting edge designers are just some of the items you can find at this clothier. With no shortage of shoes, handbags and accessories for both men and women, Brigade is a one stop shop to score a head to toe look.

Jinny If it's sophistication and elegance you crave, than look no further than Jinny. Boutique owner Jin Fillinger brings high fashion to High Street, hand selecting designs from the runways of fashion’s most famous like 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang and Rick Owens. Whether you seek a casual-chic look or full on glamour, Jinny has you covered with the shoes, accessories and handbag to match.

Rowe For the chic, “girl about town” Rowe is an urban oasis providing trendy designer duds for each season. Versatility and effortless glamour are just a few words that call to mind regarding Rowe’s ever-evolving stock. Did I mention it’s also a Mecca for accessories? If eclectic, personal style is your M.O., Rowe has an inventory which rivals that of a New York City boutique.
