You probably wouldn’t expect to find Boston’s newest sartorial hot-spot located in the city’s most bucolic neighborhood. But it’s this exact contradiction that makes Uncle Pete’s Shop poised to revive the city’s fashion sense — currently inundated with North Face fleece jackets, Vineyard Vines whale prints, and badly dyed designer jeans — with its discriminating downtown style.

I stopped in to check out Uncle Pete’s just the other day and discovered a dizzying selection of Vena Cava dresses, Under.ligne tops, and a great little white lace number by SEA, New York. After prying my hands away from an amazing silk top, I wandered toward the shoe selection, where a pair of black suede Tretorn high-tops caught my eye — at $70 they may just land on my feet yet. A quick glance at the menswear selection includes labels like, Cloak & Dagger, Simon Miller, Rag & Bone, Commes des Garcons, and Rogues Gallery. The shop also carries bags by Porter (!) and jewelry by Bing Bang.

This week, Uncle Pete’s plays host to Rogues Gallery for an in-store t-shirt making event! It starts at 5:00 p.m. and runs until 9:00 p.m. on April 1, 2010. For more information, see Uncle Pete’s blog.

    wow what a rad name! i wish there were more shops like Uncle Pete’s where i lived. i have always wanted such specialty stores that would bring in fashion from all over the place and group them under a common theme or something.

    i had spelled infretace (oops did i do it again) incorrectly as someone has pulled him up on his grammar. It’s actually a correct spelling of “interface” as it’s the Yorkshire spelling which is inteface, we have our own dialect here..:-) – i guess its like using “ya” for whatever that means (you have?)Mike: the page draws, its sometimes slowed because of the links to digg and reddit, it will display if you wait.cheersPete
