Well Worn

There comes a time in every man’s life where he takes stock, looks at his wardrobe, and says, “It’s time to grow up.” 

Well that time isn’t now, because you live in Los Angeles. And also because now you’ve got The Well — a svelte new emporium of youthful (read: streetwear-ish) gear, just opened on Olive and Olympic in downtown.

This is like American Apparel, if American Apparel sold premium underground brands. The Well’s tastemakers are only a stone’s throw from the factories that stitch much of their inventory. 

Like the geometrically pleasing Hex bags, the premium dyes of Thvm raw denim, and Unif rock and roll tees and spiked shoes

Not to mention beach-ready shawls and cardigans from Zanerobe and slim, classically-tailored suits by Vanishing Elephant, and vintage Nipponese swag (including one very fashionably ripped Sex Pistols shirt by The Seditionists).

The Well also sports an in-store salon with five sleek leather styling chairs and stylists who serve Sessions Beer or espresso. 

The back houses a production studio, and the walls open so that the space transforms into the ideal location for fashion shows and concerts. Because the young love to party. 

Consider it a fountain of sartorial youth.
