The Gents Closet
After working as a stylist, Manuel Jackson, pictured on the couch, opened up a retail space called The Gents Closet earlier this month.
It is located in the Sunset Media Towers building, at 6255 Sunset Blvd., across the street from the popular concert space Hollywood Palladium and down the street from the popular ArcLight Cinemas. Jackson, who also goes by the moniker MannyJStyle, said the place needed some fashion retail. “Styling was cool, but there was no luxury men’s boutique in Hollywood,” he said. The Gents Closet will offer the feel of a stylist’s lounge, but shoppers will be able to purchase the brands represented at the space. “It’s like having a personal shopper and stylist in one location,” he said. Brands sold at the location include Melin Brand, Bk Phillips, HAMC, D’Alpoas Italy, StampdLA, Freeman Platt, Pocket Square Clothing, New Standard Edition, Gallant Beau and Thread Haus, which is the line that Jackson designs.
