Last week I was in Los Angeles to visit a friend, see Liza Minnelli in concert and revisit a few of shops. On my itinerary was Tradesmen – our newest Archival stockist. Located in Venice, Tradesmen specializes in casual, well made, military and heritage inspired clothing: chambray shirts paired with camo shorts, for example. Trademen owners Ruben and Doug are two of the nicest gents you’ll ever meet and their store — its physical space, the presentation of their merchandise, and even the print ephemera — is stunning.
