Best of Boston

2010 Best Men's Clothing, Casual

Uncle Pete’s

A welcome addition to gifty, girly Beacon Hill, this new boutique is as hip as it is friendly. On any given day, you’ll find Uncle Pete’s proprietor Peter Tam chatting about everything from dark denim to indie music. His fashionable menswear lines include Rag & Bone, Tretorn, Cloak & Dagger, and Surface to Air, and he’s eager to chime in with helpful, practical advice on what goes with what. Bonus: A women’s section means your lady friend can look as cool as you, sir. (Buy her something nice, why don’t you?)
