Banks' DTLA Storefront Is Scrumptious

As far as surf and er, “lifestyle” apparel goes, we’re quite fond of Banks.

They keep it simple. They keep it classy. Their fits are casual, slim and quite frankly, when I slide my tummy beneath one of their button downs, I feel sexy.

And that feels good.

After American Apparel had massive everything-must-go sales and shut down, the boys at Banks teamed up with West of West design firm, and slid inside one of AA's abandoned high-ceilinged spaces, and put together a store Frank Lloyd Wright would admire. When they opened their storefront in Downtown Los Angeles, we had a look. Aesthetically, the store's immaculate, California modern with a touch of Japanese minimalism.

Have a scroll through the gallery up top. And if you’re in the area, we recommend you pop by. 

Anyway, here's the address:
The ROW DTLA
777 Alameda Street
Los Angeles, CA 90021
