A favorite of many famous folks, Wild Bill's has been completing Western wardrobes from hatted head to booted toe for more than 40 years. Wild Bill’s offers apparel for men and women, denimizing dudes in Wrangler jeans ($39.99) and wrapping lasses in Texan pride with a Ruddock button-down flag shirt ($49.99). Cotton chaps are supported by a selection of eye-catching belt buckles ($12.99–$19.99), and a Charlie 1 Horse Tulum hat ($39.99), made of brown distressed raffia with a turquoise chip band, boasts a crown with a pinch deep enough to stash a tinier hat. The shop also carries gifts and accessories, such as the cameo wine-bottle stoppers ($15.99), which prevent dud desecration by scaring off rival grape guzzlers.
Shecky's Girls Night Out makes planning a social outing between friends easy with its dozens of fashion, jewelry, and beauty product displays and samples to peruse. Having started as a published guide to New York City nightlife, Shecky's now stages stylish shindigs across the country and has garnered nationwide notice from media outlets—including Bloomberg News —for its ladies-only soirees. Drawing on its roots as a party-planning brain trust, Shecky’s relies on a talented staff to augment vendor wares with complimentary snacks and cocktails, goody bags, and makeovers. Take a peek at one of Shecky’s past events, where, like the locker room at a WNBA game, men are conspicuously absent.
It was 1974. Jim Atkinson and Wick Allison had recently graduated from the University of Texas and were inspired to communicate with Dallas via an independent city magazine. They worked late into the evening as Allison attended graduate school, developing story ideas and reaching out to local businesspeople for financial backing. After they connected with Stanley Marcus of Neiman Marcus fame, the retailer recommended D magazine to his 200,000 cardholders. Demand shot up instantly, and they hadn't even printed the first issue. As the candid editorial content and assertive tone of D magazine gained attention, it also attracted heavy criticism. Atkinson and Allison relied on honest journalistic methods to inspire and provoke their readers. And though the editorial team's commitment to addressing controversial issues soon drove away less-than-stalwart sponsors, the magazine continued to gain support from its readers. After relocating to New York and founding Art & Antiques—the world's largest circulated art and antiques magazine thanks to its subscriber base and the 72-point font text used in every article—Allison returned to D Magazine in 1995 to continue delving into the rich culture of Dallas and Fort Worth.
Executive Custom Tailors handcrafts suits from luxurious Italian fabrics, creating a silhouette that bespeaks both power and elegance. To personalize the fit without flying overseas, the company uses measurements taken by local tailors. Armed with a measuring rope, the tailors take 40 measurements and snap photos of each client’s build, stance, and shadow. They then send the order to the company’s overseas tailors, who lovingly stitch each made-to-measure suit, shirt, and tie from an often-updated catalog of more than 500 fabrics.
Upon completion, the company swiftly ships garments to customers' mailboxes. And to ensure a smooth game of dress up, Executive Custom Tailors backs each item of menswear with a fit guarantee that covers up to $50 of necessary alterations. They also keep measurements on record in the event that customers want to place future orders for themselves or their long-lost, recently reunited twin brother.
