Never let it be said that men in Los Angeles don't have access to the best in independent designer duds, at least not now. GQ just published their Top 10 Best Independent Men's Stores in America and Opening Ceremony on La Cienega took the top spot while Confederacy on Hollywood Blvd. secured the fifth spot on the much-vaunted-among-fashionistas list.Opening Ceremony is known for it's sprawling art-gallery-esque space with independently curated shops inside. Dubbed "the high-end hipster mecca" by GQ, the store is well known for carrying difficult-to-find labels that are much sought after by those in the know. Most-coveted labels include: Band of Outsiders, Acne, BOY, Mayle and Opening Ceremony's own private label collection. It's quite a "get" that the LA location won top honors, considering it opened several years after the NYC store made it big on the indie fashion scene.
