While the evolution diagram depicts the humanoid's ascent from ape to modern man, it neglects to show Homo ergaster sporting a three-piece mammoth suit and twirling a pocket sundial. Embrace innovations in early fashion trends with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $70 worth of men's casual clothing and accessories at Atlas, with locations in Walnut Creek and Olympic Valley.
Atlas has carried exclusive brands and collections throughout the last half century, earning praise for housing the Best Men's Casual Attire in the East Bay by readers of Diablo magazine in both 2010 and 2011. Holdouts from the ’50s—such as fedoras—share hat racks with modern-day baseball caps ($29.99–$65), and exclusive collections of graphic short-sleeve tees inspired by vintage hotel signs ($34.99) discuss lingering feelings in their phantom arms. Atlas's inventory also hosts stylish digs from a chic clique of brand-name vendors, including checkered button-downs by Zachary Prell and Atlas's exclusive business-casual collection, Suitable, designed in Walnut Creek and manufactured stateside. The store pairs both its casual and business attire with accessories such as Diesel wallets ($55–$75) and silk ties ($38), shoes from Puma and Mark Nason, Anthony-brand skincare products ($10–$35), and cummerbunds equipped with grappling hooks.
