After less than a year in Venice, menswear e-shop Buck Mason is set to open its second brick and mortar store this weekend. Located on Silver Lake's Sunset Boulevard across from fellow gents haunts like A.P.C. and Shinola, the 700-square-foot shop resides in a 100-year-old building, which founders Erik Schnakenberg and Sasha Koehn kept in mind when dreaming up the decor.
"It's got a 20 foot bow truss ceiling and 80 year old plaster on the walls, all of which was covered up when we got the keys," Koehn tells us of the interior. "We took the space down to the studs and exposed all of the original details. The space is very much a celebration of the building—and area's—history, and a great second home for the brand."
"I live a few blocks from the store and Sasha lives in the Arts District, so opening a store on the east side was always a dream of ours," Schnakenberg adds. "The product assortment will be the same as Venice, and since we manufacture everything within 15 miles of the Silver Lake store, we should be able to meet the neighborhood's demands pretty quickly."
Buck Mason Silver Lake opens this Saturday, March 5th and store hours will be 10am to 6pm. Swing by the opening party that night; details below.
