Denim Bars

A new wave of jeans counters is offering a huge selection of up-and-coming lines - in addition to our favorite, we'll-never-take-these-off standbys.

Uniquities

This is Chapel Hill's longest-running supplier of the latest jeans, T-shirts, and newest small-designer labels. It's been in the same high-visibility location for the past 13 years, and owner Julie Jennings knows exactly how to keep her clientele happy.

Faces

An enormous, two-level multi-department store devoted to of-the-moment, under-$50 clothing and fun housewares.

Sid Vintage

Winning vintage spot with retro printed skirts, leather jackets, and batwing sweaters on the racks—and rock and roll on the sound system.

Unite

The best place in town for artist-made T-shirts and sneakers from underground streetwear brands.

Constance Boutique

Two decades on, this Asheville landmark hasn't lost an ounce of its edge. A few years back it moved to a larger, more atmospheric space (with terrazzo floors, unbleached wool area rugs, and tribal furniture), which gave owner Constance Ensner the opportunity to bring in even more trend-making lines like M Missoni and Chie Mihara, as well as contemporary favorites like Vince and DVF.

Wink Heads & Threads

This spot is half hip salon, half equally fab shop, and it concentrates on cute, comfortable clothing (dresses are especially popular, specifically ones from Ella Moss and Max and Cleo) and sprinkles in fun odds and ends, like felt-covered notebooks with cartoony squirrels on the front and faux-jade carved bracelets.

Boogies

It's safe to say that this is probably the world's only combination diner/denim store. The ground level houses jeans by labels like People for Peace and 1921, while upstairs, shoppers enjoy burgers and jukebox tunes.

Gorsuch

Limited Luxe Tyrolean blazers, wall sconces mounted on antique snowshoes, and cowhide-upholstered wing chairs are just a sampling of what this retailer specializes in: over-the-top Black Forest chic.
