This past weekend, I went on a hunt to find Denver’s best brick and mortar boutiques for men and am happy to report these nine stellar stores. Follow the list in the order presented for a traffic-friendly tour around Denver’s top menswear boutiques:
4347 Tennyson St
If you are looking for a multi-task shop, then Spruce is for you. The quaint barber shop and boutique is a style consultancy that aims to help guys find their own style. If you’re craving a “Princess Diaries” transformation, Spruce it up! Book an appointment, go in with your crazy mane, get it tamed, then have the girls help you find a killer outfit. Boom!
4405 W 43rd Ave
Again, for the multi-tasker in you, Berkeley Supply is a great option because it’s right down the street from Spruce. This boutique has a great selection of popular menswear brands. I spotted some perfect uniform chambray shirts by Rogue Territory, as well asthis waxed canvas utility jacket.
2443 Eliot St
Attending a wedding or other special occasion soon? Sully & Co is for the man that enjoys the finer things in life, including a plethora of ties, socks and pocket squares. This boutique features all-American brands (yay!) on the more dressy side of the menswear spectrum.
1620 Platte St Ste F
1550 Platte St Ste D
Armitage and McMillan is another boutique with amazing menswear selection for any budget, plus they have a great location on Platte Street one block down from Denver Beer Company, in case you’re interested.
2049 Larimer St
If you are looking for a lifestyle store that carries more sporty clothes, then Family Affair is where you wanna be. Their product offering includes Nixon, Vans and Supreme. They are another boutique and barbershop in Denver.
2500 Larimer St #102
If you haven’t heard of or been to a Topo Designs store and you live in Colorado, you’ve probably seen the brand’s colorful backpacks. Topo Designs makes flashback inspired, adventure products for any outdoor enthusiast. I love their classic Mountain Bag, and all their products are made in the USA with pride!
46 S Broadway
One of my favorite men’s destinations in Denver is Steadbrook, because they serve coffee to the girlfriends. But really, their store offers unique and classic menswear from popular premium brands like I Love Ugly and Carhartt. They also have a great blog withstyling features for guys.
5126 E Colfax Ave
Another great shopping destination in Denver is new to the scene: Bellwether. The store is a boutique and cafe/bar and they feature a few cool brands, namely their own brand Rukus. This spot is a must-visit because of its uniqueness. They offer a membership to those interested in their workspace and drink specials, but I’d be wary of committing to go to a boutique on a regular basis because I’d be broke. Especially from visiting Bellwether, because they carry For Love & Lemons (sorry guys, had to add my excitement for a women’s brand somewhere).
To sum it up, Denver’s menswear scene is blossoming, and if you aren’t from Colorado, visit some of these stores’ online shops! Shopping at locally owned boutiques is a great way to support individuality engage with the local style community. I hope you find something for yourself or the man in your life from a shop on this list.
