Luxury suiting and menswear e-retailer Combatant Gentlemen (or Combat Gent, as it's also called) will soon be gracing Santa Monica with its first-ever retail store. The brand, widely known as one of the first design-to-delivery menswear labels, offers a stylish range of affordable essentials including suits, shirts, outerwear, denim, accessories, and shoes. Since the company controls its entire production line, your guy will get high-quality pieces at totally reasonable prices (suits start at $160).
The new store, scheduled to open on Wednesday, July 20th, promises to be sleek, modern, and industrial, with 2,200 square-feet of space housing the entire collection and a Made-To-Order suiting touchscreen system as well as RFID-display "magic mirrors" (sounds perfect for a selfie). Did we mention that Combat Gent's suit are sexy af?
Company CEO Vishaal Melwani says, "We are creating an experiential space that reflects and celebrates the company as a whole. Creating retail stores has been top-of-mind since Combat Gent was born." Undoubtedly, the space won't let customers down, and it sounds like a great place for style-savvy, tech-minded dudes to get their shopping on. Stay tuned for more information on opening week in-store events and deals.
