You’ll find plenty of women’s vintage in town, but Dr K is the epicenter of men’s vintage, with owner Somkiat becoming a quiet advocate for upping men’s style game in DC, one customer at a time. Open at odd hours (and often not at all), Dr K is the best-kept sartorial secret in DC. Don’t be surprised to find vintage Levi’s from the 1940s, letterman jackets, denim shirts, hats and bags that would easily sell for double in other more style-obsessed cities. Make friends with Somkiat (aka Dr K) and he might pull out something special for you from the back.
