Went with my cousin to shop around. Always cheap deals. Don't expect anything fancy. Just like a big outdoor flea market.

Being from the midwest I always assumed The Fashion District would be some sort of slightly less glamorous version of Rodeo Drive. Not even close. Think more like Tijuana - but the prices aren't necessarily negotiable unless you're buying in volume. The San Pedro area...More

An old part of downtown, full of old office buildings and warehouses, many of which have been and are being turned into apartments. Some good architecture. Place to shop for bargains.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

Hello! You can find dress shirts along Los Angeles St. beginning at 7th Street. You will also find dress shirts in the Santee Alley (across from 319 E. Olympic Blvd.) and the surrounding area.
