  • The Blues Jean Bar
    Whether you've got a flair for flares, an addiction to cigarette jeans, or you push toward pedal-pushing pedal pushers, The Blues Jean Bar has the stone-washed, pre-torn, or impeccable indigo of your dreams. The shop is designed like a tavern, keeping the savory styles of more than 40 top labels (for both men and women) “on tap.” Saunter up to the wood-hewn bar and ask the friendly denim-smith to whip you up a pair that combines your favorite wash, size, cut, and aroma. He or she will rifle through shelves stocked with labels such as Citizens of Humanity, 7 For All Mankind, and Red Engine to find your fittingest fit in the latest fashion, eliminating the drudgery of surfing wave after indistinguishable wave of blue. D Magazine, which recently named the bar the Best Place to Buy Jeans, calls it "almost as fun as a real bar." Prices range from $150 to $225, depending on the label and style.

  • The Luxury Box
    Inside The Luxury Box's modern shop, scruffy appearances become smooth under the care of classic barbering services and a shave performed with a hot-towel straight razor. Scissor snips tame feral follicles as a stylist fashions locks into contemporary styles. Warm towels enwrap faces using heat and gushy pet names to soften rigid hairs before a straight-edge razor glides effortlessly across the skin. Each barber chair hosts a flat-screen TV to distract clients while their hair evolves into the hair of their future. Pre-man-pampering waiting areas swallow customers in the comfortable bellies of luxe leather chairs, while complimentary beverages hydrate parched palates and sports memorabilia hangs on exposed-brick walls to stoke debates about whether data analysis should still be considered a sport.

  • Oliviers and Co.
    Oliviers and Co. is a unique Boston market that specializes in a wide swath of Mediterranean foodstuffs, with a particular emphasis on olive oils. The showroom is practically a playground for anyone who wants to spend their afternoon sampling through vibrant, spicy, warming olive oils and accompanying balsamic vinegars. Bottled options for both vinegars and oils are near-endless, with versions that rely on infusions of basil, lemon, chili and cherries, among other flavors. Customers looking for a bit of take-home funk can grab a bottle of truffle oil, while patient workers are more than happy to discuss the characteristics of different oils. Though part of a chain, Oliviers and Co. feels like a cozy one-off shop, and its location on tony Newbury Street gives a bit of cred to the operation. The well-appointed store also sells spreads, pastas, tapenades and various unique gift items.
