American Boy with European Taste
The name Santee almost immediately conjures up thoughts of crowds, endless displays of fashion tops, and the smell of bacon wrapped hot dogs, but past the hustle and bustle of Santee Alley lays a more tranquil stretch of Santee Street. The area is lined with stores retailing recognizable brands such as La Femme, and Tahari, as well as their own designs. Among this mix you’ll find American Boy, a men’s wholesaler and retailer carrying European-style shirts and jackets.
American Boy’s style is fitted and sleek. The mannequins sport biker-inspired jackets and coats in eye-catching colors and patterns. On most days, you’ll find the owner, Jacques Moadel, assisting his customers and offering insight into the latest men’s fashion. Jacques opened American Boy four years ago and boasts and international clientele base.
On average American Boy shirts retail from $25 to $39, while jackets range from $50 to $99. Wholesale prices range from $15 to $49. For inquiries please contact Jacques Moadel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 213-749-9399.
