Get a glimpse inside the most recent guideshop from menswear startup retailer Bonobos in Washington, DC’s Shaw neighborhood.
Like their other neighborhood and national options, the Shaw guideshop offers a range of merchandise to touch and try on. Unlike traditional retailers, however, Bonobos doesn’t stock inventory onsite. Customers get to feel the merchandise. When you find something you like, you can order it in the shop and have it sent directly (and quickly) to you home.
Expect a range of the company’s signature washed chinos, along with a heavy selection of button-down shirts, suits and neckwear and a rotating cast of seasonal wear and accessories.
The staff is accommodating but not overly solicitous — ready to help but also willing to leave you alone if you just want to look.
