Best Clothing Store: Bivouac
Tucked into State Street across from Walgreens, the store offers a strangely wide selection of outdoor winter gear, preppy menswear, and bohemian women’s clothing and accessories. Their selection is pricey but high quality. The store itself is surprisingly large for its humbly sized window displays. It’s the one stop shop for a Canada Goose jacket, a Hydroflask, or trendy jewelry. The men’s section offers brands like Vineyard Vines, Patagonia, and North Face, blending outdoor gear and the perfect look for Martha's Vineyard. The women’s section is slightly more confusing offering Free People intimates, Anthropologie-looking candles and $300 dollar sweaters. The kind of million thread count cotton sweater you wonder if anyone actually wears. But among the expensive goods are some true finds like clever Michigan themed t-shirts, locally crafted jewelry, and a sale section upstairs. Overall, an interesting place to shop, especially if your parents are in town.
