Best Clothing Store (Men)

Atmosfere

Shopping locally can be tough for guys who care about fashion. Thrift stores can be a time-suck, and there's no guarantee that you'll find what you're looking for. Meanwhile, many men's clothing stores sell items with price tags way beyond what the average dude can afford. Enter Atmosfere, a shop where dapper gents, Uptown hipsters, and pulled-together fiftysomething dads can go to shop high or low. The Calhoun Square location offers a little of everything. There are suits and accessories both for formal events and day-to-day work; there are coats that could qualify as art pieces, and there are nice ones that will keep you warm; there are jeans and T-shirts priced from $20 to $185; and the sales racks often offer deals under $100. Atmosfere grew as a business this year, too. The store recently added a second location in the North Loop, and both spots now carry women's clothing.
