President Barack Obama has a Shinola watch. So does President Bill Clinton. Since coming on the scene in 2011, Shinola has become the most visible of Detroit brands. Fittingly for the Motor City, the brand is built on quality manufacturing done by Michigan workers — of watches, journals, bicycles, and leather goods. Midtown canines know Shinola, too, for the popular dog park they opened at Canfield Street and Cass Avenue.
