Mike Kuhle and Adele Berne’s shop smells as good as it looks, thanks to its ample supply of Baxter of California candles and grooming products. And the shop attracts the sort of guy who’s into that—one who’d burn a candle while shaving, then slip into a pair of straight-leg jeans made from Japanese selvedge-denim and a lightweight gingham button-down (designed by the shop’s owners). Other top picks include ties, tie bars, cuff links, hats hand-knit by Berne’s mama, scores of Toms shoes, and dresses, tunics and heels for the ladies.
