Your love affair with his broken-in jeans and favorite flannel has gone on long enough.
Time to refill his drawers with vintage finds from the new Kelly Cole Extraordinarium on West Third Street.
Cole, the brains behind the Lo-Fi brand and boutique once found on Fairfax, is once again housing handpicked clothing, art-house books and accessories, and a rotating gallery space all under one new roof.
Thumb through shelves of soft, preloved tees for him (that Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers or Budweiser baseball tee should do the trick), plus thermals, plaids, and horsehide Buco motorcycle jackets made for layering. To keep those old Levi’s up, grab one-of-a-kind recycled leather and studded belts from the exclusive Kelly Cole line. There are even engineer boots and cool kerchiefs for kicks.
Just don’t let him know this whole Valentine’s Day thing is just an excuse to replenish your stock.
Kelly Cole Extraordinarium, 7934 West Third Street, between Hayworth and Edinburgh Avenues (323-782-1400).
