GQ's latest retail top-10 list includes two from L.A. (and only one from New York City)

November 9, 2010 | 11:02 am


GQ magazine has just weighed in on what it considers to be the 10 best independent men's stores in America in 2010, and the list includes two boutiques right here in our backyard.

Taking the No. 1 spot is Opening Ceremony at 451 N. La Cienega in Los Angeles (although GQ places the block-spanning boutique in West Hollywood, according to the Times' Mapping L.A. project, it's just barely inside the boundary of Los Angeles' Beverly Grove neighborhood).

The second local menswear standout, according to GQ, is Confederacy (which clocks in at No. 5) at 4661 Hollywood Blvd. (which is in Los Feliz, in case you were wondering).

GQ's list also includes independent menswear shops in Madison, Wis.; Atlanta; Miami Beach; San Francisco; Seattle; Austin, Texas; and Nashville.

Oh, and one store (Hollander & Lexer) in the borough of Brooklyn in some strange place called New York City.

I think I've heard of it.
