Georgetown and Beverly Hills will be the first locations for New York City-based company HMX Group's new upscale retail concept for men. The D.C. location will be called the "Streets of Georgetown," according to The Washington Post.
In February, a "For Lease" sign appeared in the window of Reiss at 1254 Wisconsin Ave. and in March the retailer had a Washington, D.C "Farewell Event."
HMX Group's new concept will offer all six of its brands under one roof. Brands include Hickey Freeman, Hart Schaffner Marx and Bobby Jones, Exclusively Misook, Coppley and Christopher Blue.
“There is definitely more pronounced interest from men’s fashion retailers for the first time that I can remember in my 25 years in business in D.C.,” said John Asadoorian, a broker with District-based Asadoorian Retail Solutions, according to The Washington Post.
