After opening its first IRL outpost just a stone's throw from Abbot Kinney in fall 2013, men's e-tailer Buck Mason is finally making its away across the street. Next month, the brand is taking over the 650-square-foot space previously occupied by Venice Heights (formerly Prize of Venice), notes Apparel News.
The boutique—a quick stroll from the brand's Venice Boulevard showroom—will offer Buck Mason's affordable and LA-made wardrobe essentials, like knit tops, chambray button-downs, and selvedge denim ($24 to $135). Cool founders Sasha Koehn and Erik Schnakenberg recently appeared on reality TV show Shark Tank, but ultimately turned down funding offers in order to maintain full control of their company. (Smart move.)
