Independent Shopping Guide
Lauriston Street, Edinburgh
The stock of this brilliantly cool streetwear and vintage menswear store is usually found all over the backs of staffers at The List. Great labels, great murals on the walls and great in-store events.
A1 Comics & Static Games
Parnie Street, Glasgow; Argyle Market, Glasgow
It’s a nasty stereotype that graphic novels and gaming are primarily the preserve of the XY-chromosomed. We do see an awful lot of men in these two excellent, er, sister stores, though.
Rose Street, Edinburgh
Where streetwear goes to grow up. Top-notch casual stuff and work clothes for former skaterboys.
Mr Smith Underwear
Byres Road, Glasgow
Just underpants. Lots of underpants. And the odd pair of swimming trunks. Labels such as D&G and our own-grown Red Torpedo, and witty window displays. With underpants.
The Men’s Store
West Nile Street, Glasgow
These days, buff blokes tan. And groom. And tweeze. And, er, wax. Everything but the guyliner at this high-end grooming gaff for geezers.
