I stopped by Gaviidae Common Thursday for a sneak peek of Len Druskin Man, which opens to fashion followers (and everyone else) on Friday. Given the downtown locale and men's-only apparel, I'd been thinking this store was going to be more about dressing up. But much like the Galleria Len Druskin store for men and women, it's more about dressing well -- on your own terms, which means a display of vintage-styled North Stars, Vikings and Minnesota Wild tees by the front door (guess what I'm getting my husband and bro for the holidays!), tons of premium
denim, cashmere sweaters, fitted and funky shirts and fashion forward lines like Modern Amusement. "We had to stay true to ourselves," says CEO Michael Druskin. True to the Druskin vibe, the store is packed. But it seems more manageable than Galleria. Don't miss the refrigerator in back, stocked with free sodas and Len Druskin-brand water. Oh, and if you know a guy who doesn't like to golf, tell him to consider bonding with his buds over a private shopping party at Len Druskin Man. Can't wait to hear if that catches on! In other Len Druskin news: watch for an expanded swimwear section at the Galleria store.
