    The Clothing Warehouse
    Shopping at thrift stores isn't for everyone. Scouring racks of other people's discarded belongings - that you just have to hope were laundered in advance - to maybe dig up a couple of cute things every couple of hours. And there's no guarantee those cute things will be vintage cute things. Clothingmore...
    Shopping at thrift stores isn't for everyone. Scouring racks of other people's discarded belongings - that you just have to hope were laundered in advance - to maybe dig up a couple of cute things every couple of hours. And there's no guarantee those cute things will be vintage cute things. Clothing Warehouse, with its racks upon racks of color-coded dresses, shirts, and skirts (men's clothes, too), is a sure thing - a kind of carefully curated thrift store. A few months prior to celebrating their 20th year in Atlanta, owners Jim Buckley and Erin Faulman expanded their intown operations and opened a huge, sunny space at the corner of 10th and Peachtree streets in Midtown (their flagship store is still open in Little Five Points). The same great candy-colored vintage duds abound - and, of course, there's the famous selection of used (in the good way) cowboy boots - in a shiny new space. Beats spending an entire Saturday in a musty thrift store. less...

    Putting a hipster clothing boutique in a stately old library building on Moreland Avenue was a stroke of genius when WISH opened a dozen or so years back. Now, several owners and inventory changes later, the shop has reached its full potential with a spectacular renovation that would feel like a SoHo art gallery — if you weren’t so consumed with browsing through its racks of Nice Collective, True Religion and Martin Margiela. The clean lines, black-and-white palette and stark furnishings of the main floor are made less imposing by the use of lowly materials such as bare plywood for wall paneling and construction nails for accessory hooks. Downstairs, the dim, book-lined shoe vault, where specialty kicks rest dramatically on glowing white boxes, is an equally captivating space. And the brilliant ad campaign — shots of local musicians wearing Wish’s wares — only complements the store’s hot new look. less...

    Best Hip Clothing Store BOA Award Winner

    1198 Howell Mill Road, Suite 114 404-605-0900 The idea is for the outfit to be different, hip, unique - but not weird - and for people to wonder where you got it.

    1198 Howell Mill Road, Suite 114 404-605-0900 The idea is for the outfit to be different, hip, unique - but not weird - and for people to wonder where you got it. Scout has that look, mostly clothing lines that aren't sold anywhere else in the city, aren't outrageously expensive and just plain look cool. Open just a year in the courtyard beside Bacchanalia, Scout specializes in both men's and women's fashions from emerging designers like Sandy Dalal and Steven Alan. With trendy boutiques like this and powerhouse bars and restaurants, it's no wonder West Village is emerging as the new East Atlanta. less...

    Not only is Sushi full of current, fun clothes, but there's also something to be said about such a trendy store managing to carry stuff that you can wear to a club, to work and to lunch with your grandmother. Somehow you like the rhinestone-studded stretch jeans and the dark denim skirt with ragged just as much as you like that asymmetrical hem print skirt and turquoise stretch top — so you buy all of it. less...
