5 fashion shops for him in Hamburg
1) ADLER Altona
Christian Adler likes being a champion for Altona. It’s not just that he makes sure its gentlemen appear in public nicely turned out and smelling sweet. He also publishes a little guide to Altona retailers and is himself a manufacturer in the Hanseatic city. This is the place to find the best gift ideas for men. For example, Gin Sul from the local distillery.
André Giesselmann’s shop is more a profession of faith than just the next hoodie label. His Mojo logo has made it onto the chests and nuts of so many influencers, male and female, that you’re more likely to come by for a Kümmel than with the intention of making a purchase. André’s collaborations are legendary, such as most recently the hoodie with his neighbours from Erika’s Eck.
3) Walka Dudy Freak Shop
The ‘Dudy’ in the name says it all. This shop stocks everything a dudy or dandy could want: Red Wing shoes, Schiesser underwear, Carhartt trousers, Deus Ex Machina jackets and Brixton hats. All that’s really missing is a big car park in front of the shop on Ottenser Hauptstrasse, where customers could leave their high-chassised Landrover Defender – or their Cafe Racer.
4) Rooks & Rocks
Simon Schmidt, Rico Albert and Viktor Lis’s shop in the Galleria Passage operates as follows: state why you’re buying and the craziness level, stretch out your arms, close your eyes, turn round twice, scan in your credit card, collect the perfect suit four weeks later. Particularly adventurous customers also choose their own fabrics, patterns and colours.
5) Anton Meyer
It makes most sense to quote word for word from gent’s outfitter Anton Meyer’s own description: “The one inevitable excuse for the fashion gaffes on male physiques in the Federal Republic of Germany no longer applies: there is no longer an absence of well-cut, excellently fitting, outstandingly made and tremendously good-looking men’s off-thepeg clothing which, in addition, doesn’t cost a fortune (we can all do ‘expensive’)”.
