So when you want Detroit-made handsomeness...
Go to Plano.
Because as of today, a couple of Detroit’s finest exports have just landed side-by-side on 15th Street in Downtown Plano.
In one corner: Shinola (pictured left), that American-made bastion of good-looking watches, rugged leather and perfectly straightforward bicycles. Walk amongst the wooden tables and glass displays to find large-face watches with stainless-steel cases and Horween-leather straps. Then hop aboard one of those single-speed bikes. Then good luck keeping your eyes on the road and not on your newly decorated wrist.
In the other corner: Willys Detroit, a Shinola sister store with brick walls and metal racks that’s a real trove of summer-ready gear. Grab yourself a Steven Alan shirt and a pair of Mollusk shorts to shove into a durable Filson canvas bag. Then go. Make big plans. Hit the road. Find a beach. Or just always be prepared with a change of clothes.
And now, take a look for yourself.
Because a picture is worth a thousand words.
And no one wants to read that many words.
