Best of Boston

2015 Best Jeans


It’s rare to find a designer denim shop that serves both men and women. It’s rarer still to find a designer denim shop where the staff isn’t terminally snooty or so eager to make a sale that you feel self-conscious before you even hit the dressing room. And yet that’s what you’ll find at 37-year-old Riccardi, a punkish Newbury Street stalwart with a rotating array of on-trend brands to choose from (Balmain, Goldsign, R13), a space big enough to browse without feeling pecked at, and no upsell.
