Florida Shops

Shop city
Base
2215 NW 2 Ave., Wynwood
Cool as they are, concept stores have a tendency to wither comparatively quickly, so the fact that Steven Giles's men's shop—now nestled in colorful Wynwood—has been in business since 1989 is the first sign that it merits a second look. In addition to his excellent assortment and spot-on limited editions, Giles has supported his business by expanding Base into a brand consultancy that's worked with design-centric hotels both locally (EDITION) and in other cities (Ian Schrager's Public Hotel in Chicago). That said, his exquisite taste is best experienced via the shelves and racks of his shop, where you'll find cargo jackets from cool-kid Japanese brand Nanamica, Herschel Dopp kits in neutral greys and blacks, drop-crotch silk pants from Daniel Patrick's LA-made Knomadick, and more.
