Rice Village is loaded with boutiques to suit just about every occasion and Detour fills the need for dedicated fashion followers who only wear the latest premium denim lines. The middle of the shop divides the women's offering from the men's duds, but both sides are equally fab, full of Rock & Republic, True Religion, Citizens of Humanity, 7 for all Mankind, and Diesel, to name a few. You can also find something to match your new jeans but the main attraction is definitely the denim. With only the best of the best and an immense variety there is no other one-stop shop to stock up on the finest indigo lovin’ styles. If you go in kind of late on a weeknight you are almost guaranteed to have the run of the shop, and don’t mind the snobby and unhelpful salesgirls because if you know what you want and your size this small store is a breeze to navigate. Feel free to rummage through their stacks with complete abandon they understand better than most that we all get excited around fabulous jeans.
