2009 has afforded me a bit of travelling the states. I can tell you from hard experience, that the cooolest store in all of america is the john varvatos store at the hard rock hotel in las vegas. my goodness is it cool. 3,000 square feet where music and style groove. most weeks they clear out the inventory and host concerts there. and the employees smoke cigarettes. too cool for school. plus, they've got incredible design and product to match. rock on.
