Not only has The Richter Co. become a source for men’s and women’s luxurious basics, tailored button-downs and trendy staff T-shirts for a host of new restaurants (see: Grayson Street Eatery, SoBro Pizza and Tuk Tuk Tap Room, just to name a few) designed and crafted right here in the Alamo City, the lower Broadway store has become a chameleon-like social venue for pop-up yoga, Taco Tuesdays and evening soirees. Shop in person (Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m and Sunday 12 to 6 p.m.) or online.
3609 Broadway, (210) 375-5882, scrman.com
This class-act clothing store for the gents is located on Broadway near the Witte. Short for “style comfort relativity,” the shop sells top-caliber casual and dressy menswear, carefully designed here in SA and produced in Vernon, Calif., by the same manufacturing houses of many major designer labels.
