Folks, if you're sick of people saying Detroit is the new Brooklyn, we urge you to quickly close this tab. Some Brooklyn-based barber shop chain is set to open their fifth franchise in Midtown next week. According to a press release the address will be 441 West Canfield, which means it'll be a neighbor to Shinola and Willy's.
The shop, called Fellow Barber, says it's a part of a "collective" that is credited with the renaissance of traditional barber shops. Furthermore, they added in a press release, "Fellow Barber will be an interesting addition to the emerging downtown Detroit landscape."
Can you hear our eyes rolling?
The Manual wrote this little ditty about it
. Right from the very first sentence, we're annoyed.
