Classic, well-made and illustrative of a luxurious American aesthetic, Shinola’s Detroit-built watches, bicycles, leather goods and more are a riff on nostalgia and an all-American aesthetic. Sold in cool emporiums such as Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus, Steven Alan, Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom, a Shinola boutique has opened shop in Plano — the eighth U.S. retail location and the first in Texas — and stocks a full complement of stylish bicycles (we’re crushing on the baby-blue Runwell that’s equal part fashion and function) and sophisticated watches, handcrafted in Shinola’s Detroit flagship, plus journals, pet accessories and leather wallets, backpacks and passport holders. The 1,700-square-foot space with brick walls and a billowing floor-to-ceiling American flag also houses Shinola sister store Willys Detroit, which stocks apparel, and home and apothecary goods. Shinola’s brick-and-mortar introduction to Texas is not as random as it seems: Its parent company, Bedrock Manufacturing, is also based in Plano. 1039 E. 15th St., Plano, 972.543.4583.
