Downtown Birmingham was once a center for garment manufacturing and retailing. And while venerable department stores such as Loveman’s and Pizitz have been repurposed for other uses, the clothing business is again a part of downtown’s retail mix. Long time establishments such as Baldone Tailors, Robert Hill Tailors and Fine Traditions have been joined in the last several years by Sonya Faye Tailors & Clothier and Charm on 2nd. Newcomers include Shebet’s Boutique, Alchemy 213 (pictured above), Artefact Supply and the latest addition, The Clothing Gallery, which is expected to open in February. Whether you’re looking for custom tailored attire, the latest urban fashions from Milan and New York, or unique accessories, you’ll find them all within just a few walkable blocks downtown.
Birmingham’s city center is fortunate to have many of its iconic historic buildings restored and in daily use now. But where would Birmingham be without the buildings in between the landmarks?
