Los Angeles, CA – November 19, 2010 – Simple, elegant, austere, cool… are a few of the terms major media and men’s style writers use to describe men’s shop Douglas Fir, now part of the Taigan.com website, the Internet’s best shopping community of online specialty shops and one-of-a-kind finds.
Douglas Fir was founded on the belief that a retail store should be about simplicity and accessibility. Storeowners Jon Noble and Tino Abarca merely filled a shop with all things they loved; and for the last 10 years, Los Angeles and major men’s style publications have lauded their efforts. To sum up the elegantly unstuffy shop in the words of GQ, “it’s pretty much impossible to go wrong here.”
Specialty retailers like Douglas Fir are tapping into Taigan’s turnkey e-commerce solution to join an exclusive community of the best shops and products online; styled and edited by Creative Director Julia Reed.
