Clothing is at once functional and decorative, just like throw pillows filled with Swiss Army knives and doormats that conceal manholes from unwelcome guests. Drape yourself in dynamic threads with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of men’s clothing, accessories, and more at House Boi in Hillcrest.
Owned and operated by experienced design guru Ari Clare, House Boi stocks contemporary home furnishings along with fashion-forward men's clothing and accessories inside a bold boutique. Dress derrieres with denim from English Laundry, Reco Encino, and M Denim ($79–$99), or air out biceps with a collection of comfy cotton tanks ($15.95–$39). A variety of attire adornments, including scarves, hats, and belt buckles embellish outfits like sprinkles on a donut, and a collection of fitted swimwear ($38–$54.99) needs little more than inflatable arm floats to make wearers look poolside posh.
Housewares at House Boi range from an ornate ceramic tea set ($29) to architectural coffee tables and embossed bar ware. The store itself provides style inspiration with a balance of neon and neutral wall colors and funky furniture interspersed among the racks of designer garb.
