Boston Shop Alert: Converse, Pinkberry, Ibex and J.Crew Men

Back in town for a day before heading off to NYC for a The Feast/Shop fest.  After a mani/pedi at Miniluxe I hit Madewell (got a super cute print dress, studded belt and army green jacket), then Saks for a return, and over to J.Crew (MUST try the toothpick pant – v. comfy). Here’s the new openings I spotted along the way.

Converse opening this fall on last block of Newbury next to Patagonia.

G2O Spa+Salon moving from last block 2nd floor space to fancier spot at 278 Newbury.

Pinkberry to open at 286 Newbury. Mmm.

Ibex (outdoor clothing) joins Newbury, in the former Framery space on the corner of Hereford.

The guys get their own. As reported by WWD this spring, J.Crew Men’s is opening in Boston, across the way from J.Crew in Copley Place. This will be the first men’s-specific store outside NYC. Now if they’d consider a Crew Cuts in the same location, I’d be all set.

  1. Happy to hear about the J. Crew Men’s Store. The main J. Crew in Copley is almost unshopable: too much merchandise poorly displayed, a terrible lay- out and way too long lines at the register.

    Great update.

  2. Thanks for this update. Somebody was just telling me how amazing Pinkberry is. And I agree-wish we had a crew cuts nearby. I stopped by the one in Hingham and it is by far my favorite store for kids!

      1. I was wandering around Back Bay yesterday (Ok, so I was actually going to the James Perse sample sale :)) and I saw a billboard that said October 15th.

Let's talk style.
