Men's Clothes at Kal Rau

Shopping for men's clothes is always a challenge - fashion tends to fall into a few staid categories - steroidal bouncer, emo kitty, urban hoody grunge, blingy playa, and preppy rainbow bright. It can be really hard to find a designer who avoids these ruts, but thanks to Ben Vanguard's SLMen blog, I found a good prospect today. Kal Rou's eponymous store in La Fortuna 2 has a very nice selection of men's clothes. Tweedy, sporty, preppy, collegiate, surfer, along with some out of the ordinary options like capri pants for men. Prices are reasonable, some of the items come with scripted menus for fitting, and multi layer options help to avoid those awkward clothing gaps. The sculpted collars and cuffs are especially well done - a very nice find!
