Late to the Party | Blackbird in Seattle.

Feb 5th, 2008 | Categories: Men's Stores, Seattle, Style | by Michael Williams


I’m late to the party. I admit it. I don’t get to Seattle much – actually I have only been one time. While I was there, (on a weekend business trip) I tried to get to know the city as well as I could. Somehow I did manage to find a lot of cool restaurants and shops. One glaring thing I missed was the men’s store Blackbird. Located in the Ballard section of the city, Blackbird is not what you expect for a men’s store in the Pacific Northwest. These guys are smart, very smart. The store is more akin to something you would find off of the L Train. They know good brands and they carry good brands. To quote my friend Paul, “they are on point.”


A edited selection of the Blackbird stocklist:

A.P.C., Band of Outsiders, BBlessing, Comme Des Garcons, Filippa K, Gilded Age, Kasil, Lova (These guys were the standout brand from Project Las Vegas in August 07 – very cool brand), Nom De Guerre, Obedient Sons, Obey, Rag & Bone, Robert Geller, RVCA, Shipley & Halmos, Steven Alan, Surface to Air and Unis.
