Location: Florence, Ala.
Best brands: Billy Reid
Billy Reid is a well-known menswear designer with shops all over the U.S., from New York to Atlanta to New Orleans. But it’s the unlikely home base of Florence, Alabama that truly sets it apart from the rest. Yes, the clothes are sweet because Billy has been doing this well for years, but the flagship store’s interior is world-renowned for its Southern mansion-style set-up, complete with mounted game, antique appliances, and hand-finished details.
