Back in April, we got word that premium denim brand Earnest Sewn would be opening up its
first second LA boutique [first in Malibu September 30] at the corner of Beverly Boulevard and North Gardner Street. The first sign of the label is up at the former auto repair shop, where deals on tires and oil changes were once posted. No word on when it will be opening, but a boutique owner in the area said a container filled with the shop's decor was spotted, so that's a little progress. As of now, save the sign, it still looks like a closed-down repair shop. [Racked Wire]
