Two online menswear labels have set up bricks-and-mortar locations in the Greater L.A. area.
The 700-square-foot space was designed by co-founders Erik Schnakenberg and Sasha Koehn. They also renovated the property themselves with help from family members.
Doors are scheduled to open at 11 a.m., with complimentary cocktails served from 4 to 8 p.m., when the event ends. Free on-site alterations will be offered all day.
The new store is at 1638 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice. Regular hours are 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and noon to 7 p.m. Sundays.
Meanwhile, Indochino, which makes custom menswear, opened a showroom last week in Beverly Hills.
At the showroom, men can be fitted for suits and shirts, select fabrics and choose custom details. Finished garments are delivered around four week later. There's also an exclusive lounge for grooms and groomsmen.
Indochino is at 9407 S. Santa Monica Blvd. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sundays. Appointments can be made at indochino.com/showrooms.
