There are boutiques in the D.C. area that cater to their range of tastes and allow men to express their own personality, creativity and individual sense of style. These are those places.

Collared Greens‘ flagship store offers its clientele style with just the right amount of whimsy, which makes it the perfect fit for the man who wants to look good, but doesn’t take himself too seriously. This eco-conscious men’s clothing retailer, which offers neck wear, organic cotton knits and T-shirts, belts and accessories, believes in conserving and protecting the environment and offsets its carbon footprint through the use of “native energy.” In 2008, Collared Greens established the CG/24 Conservation Project, which is a company commitment to help increase awareness and support for the environment. Each year the company supports up to four non-profit organizations—selected by customers—which focus on conservation. The company’s green polar bear brand symbol called Marvin Leopold is an endangered species which reflects the shop’s mission of conservation. The bear’s green color is whimsically mirrored in many of the company’s clothing items and accessories.

Tasteful denims, leathers and cottons form the foundation of the Federal man’s wardrobe, giving him a ruggedly modern and casual—but still thoughtful—look.
