Commander Salamander was located at 1420 Wisconsin Ave, NW and closed after a legnthy going out of business sale in 2010. Looks like an M & T Bank is taking over the space.
From an old Lonely Planet write up:
“This rock-and-roll store sells urban clothes and gear to give you that edgy look of the streets – if that’s what you’re after. Look for Blac Label shirts and jackets, chrome-plated belts, roaring tiger trucker hats, candy-colored Nike hi-tops and oversized Flüd watches.”
Quite a contrast…
