Standard & Strange Styles Up The Men

We believe that Standard & Strange has a great job. They get to make men look really good every day.

How do they accomplish this feat? Well, it’s a men’s denim shop curated by proprietors with very high expectations for quality and unique style. It has the denim classics (the “standard”) and the statement making different (the “strange”). Love it. And it has a quirky, warm shopping ambience.

But, they can also help the customer who is not into shopping vibes and doesn’t really want to be there. Gen once told me that he can get anybody styled and out the door in 10 minutes. I believe him. Whether it takes just minutes or you spend an hour, Standard & Strange is there to help you explore your individual style.

They say that they are “home to the absolute best in denim, boots, and more from Japan, USA, and Europe.” We certainly won’t dispute that claim. They’ve got stunning leather jackets, shirts, shoes, boots, belts, and other manly accessories.

In short, they’ve got the whole outfit, and the expertise, there waiting for you.
