Steven Alan is looking to expand in Dallas and Chicago sometime this year. They recently opened their newest shop in Portland, and have several outposts in California, New York, and Connecticut in addition to individual stores in Atlanta and Boston.

Also, Suitsupply will open stores in both Dallas and Houston soon as part of their aggressive American expansion.

I don't know if it is still true, but at one time Dallas was home to more stores per capita than any other place on earth including New York City. Indeed, by teir 2, if you mean Houston is Mickey Mouse, then Dallas is Mighty Mouse.

And it isn't that Houston doesn't have shopping. Unfortunately, like the city itself, it is quite spread out and Bohemian.

It's all within the loop.

In Dallas, Love Field is intimately involved with the central core of Dallas and the four resulting major commercial shopping districts that have developed north of there for 23 miles along Preston Road. Houston neither has a Preston Road nor a Lemmon Avenue. Forget the stores, the shopping centers themselves are jewels: Highland Park Village, Lakewood, Inwood, Preston Center, Northpark Mall, the Galleria, the Jefferson commercial district, and so on.

The missing factor in Houston is that it doesn't have an intimately close in Love Field.

Trying to run them through my head, but it seems most all the primary high end shopping is located inside loop 12. The only significant one I can think of is Galleria.

I am old enough to remember when the city of Dallas was an integral part of not just having upscale stores, but in setting the scale of what was sold in the stores back when it had a garment industry. In my younger years, I worked in a garment factory located across the street from the Dallas Fair Park.

During that time, when roaming around the Dallas Fair Park during the month that was the State Fair of Texas, I decided to check out an inconspicuous door up some stairs and upon opening it, a full blown fashion show was going on. Only at the State Fair of Texas would something so seemingly important be tucked away no where.

Anyway, helping establish the scale of retail is always going to be better than having lots of upscale stores. White it is starting to attract new garment garments within the Dallas Design District, the city of Dallas needs to reestablish its garment industry.

Having two design districts, one being the Dallas Design District downtown and the other being the North Dallas Design District around the Dallas Galleria is an indication that the city of Dallas is still involved with establishing the scale in retail.
