Spotlight: Commonwealth & For The Greater Good

Commonwealth, the gentleman's streetwear/fashion/sportswear boutique on Florida Avenue has sprouted an entire culture right here in DC focusing on changing the shopping experience. The shop seeks to provide progressive designs, blending young up-and-coming and contemporary designers. Along with its big brother, For The Greater Good, Commonwealth has exposed the community to art and ideas through exhibitions and in-store events; working with the likes of NERD, Kenna, the Clipse and artists such as Cody Hudson and Eric Coleman. The shops carry brands such as A.P.C., Ray Ban, Red Wing, Stussy Deluxe, Converse, Cassette, Maiden Noir and many more.
This summer, For the Greater Good played host to Greater Good Mondays at the Donovan House rooftop; which proved to be a go-to location on steamy Monday nights in the city.
All in all, the two shops are transforming the male shopping experience into a more progressive, socially responsible and inventive process.
