British clothier AllSaints Spitalfields to open on M St.

AllSaints Spitalfields, a British clothing retailer, is opening at 3235 M St. this summer. The company has signed a 10 year lease on the space, owned by EastBanc.

The store currently occupying the property, Club Monaco, has a lease that ends on March 31st.

AllSaints sells expensive casual clothing for men, women, and children. The company currently has ten U.S. locations, in addition to 70 in the UK. Their online store carries $110 jorts and pre-dusted boat shoes for $210. All their models look at their feet unhappily.

So much for sensibility.

  1. What in the world is this crap? $80 for a T-shirt? I don’t even have the words to express how confused and perplexed this store’s existence (not to mention its expansion) makes me feel.

  2. As someone who has spent more than 6 months studying abroad in London, I feel I can say with some authority that everything in this store makes me feel like a grandfather who has trouble connecting with his grandchildren.

  3. I have a pair of boat shoes that look just like the ones above. They too are \dusted\ mostly with all-natural, organic goose excrement from cleaning off docks in the morning. My boat shoes also come will a \pre-odor\ treatment that makes them smell like authentic boat shoes. Additionally, they have one of a kind blood spatter from when I dropped an outboard motor on my foot. Originally by Sperry, customized with care by me. I’ll take $209 or best offer.
