Alessandro's Retail Adventure in New York


The other day my friend Alessandro (whom you have seen in several shots from Milan and Florence) emailed to let me know he was in New York for a shopping/inspiration trip. He was looking for shops and brands that specialize in American classic style.

He had been to all the well-known shops like Odin, Melet Mercantile, Bergdorf Goodman, etc. However, he had missed some of the smaller, cool shops that are making New York one of the best menswear destinations in the world right now.

I offered to take him on the unofficial "Sartorialist-tour-of-cool-small-shops-specializing-in-classic-American-style-and-atmosphere" and made a few appointments. This was very spur-of-the-moment and is in no way a comprehensive selection, but with only two hours to show a super-chic visitor a few shops these are the places I made the priority.

I know Alessandro has a weakness for shoes so the first stop was Barker Black. Derrick just keeps evolving his American/English-inspired shoes, furnishing each with a sinister twist.

198b Elizabeth Street
212.966.2166

Next, we went around the block to Freemans Sporting Club. I think this was the shop that really wowed Alessandro. He loved the design of the space. I think he is very impressed at the American ability to take an unremarkable space and rebuild it with character; in this case, to look like an old dry goods shop that seemed to have occupied the space for over 100 years. Keith McNally does the same trick with Pastis, Balthazar, etc.
8 Rivington Street
212.673.3209

I was going to take him to Leffot but he had already visited the day before, What he mentioned, though, was how funny it was to see Aldens done through the eyes of Americans. Right now Alden is one of the hottest brands in Italy and Japan but they are always bought with the unique perspective of buyers in each country. As I have mentioned before, Aldens here are way to clunky for my taste but I've seen them in Seoul, Milan, Florence and Japan and stores always seem to pick the perfect two or three styles that reflect the local taste.

(The one exception in the US is how J. Crew is buying Aldens right now. They're offering a very good selection.)
10 Christopher Street
212.989.4577

So, instead of heading west we took Bowery uptown to the orginal Kiehl's on Third Ave. Very cool. Alessandro loved the Indian motorcycles that share the space with creams and lotions.
109 3rd Ave
212.677.3171

Just down the block on 13th street is the new-ish vintage shop Stock Vintage. Another great location for product and layout.
143 East 13th Street
212.505.2505

Our last stop (again, we only had a very short time period) was Saturdays Surf. Alessandro got a kick out of the idea of city surfing.
31 Crosby Street
212.966.7875

I wanted to take them to see Kirk at Miller's Oath but instead.....
510 Greenwich Street
212.219.9965

...I took Alessandro for a real American meal....fajitas and margaritas at Rocking Horse!!!
182 Eighth Ave
212.463.9511
He left for the airport very happy.

Wow, you really made some great stops with your friend. Those those suede oxfords. I've got to get my husband to pull those out, he hasn't worn them in forever. I just love the way they go with everything. I just love Kiehl's. I could buy everything there! I'll have to check out Stock Vintage. Antiques and such are my fav. Thanks for this very interesting post!

About F.S.C/Keith McNally/Pastis: I don't go across the Atlantic to New York very often. So when I did spend a weekend in the city a few years ago and visited several McNally-spaces that were recommended (Baltazar, Pastis, and that place on the Lower East Side) over one weekend, it struck me how the initial allure turned into a disturbing awareness of how fake that veneer of "authentic" actually is! - Many levels better than Disneyworld, but still...!

A lovely piece!

I’m inspired to share a story about one of my favourite pastimes; to comb menswear stores and find beautiful pieces my anti-clothes husband will feel comfortable wearing. (Before me he shopped at Target!)

It's fun to match his personality and preferences with quality pieces that look hot.

He hates to admit he gets all puffed up when he wears my selection but he does. Especially when people compliment him - which is often.

One of my favourite stories is the first time I convinced him to spend big by appealing to his practicality. It was on a pair of brown suede brogue boots from the Prada outlet in Italy. After months of him telling me he could only wear crocs because his feet are too wide for anything else, I sagely advised him these beautiful brogues would accommodate his wide feet AND make him look great when he took me to our favourite restaurant, Da Delfina in Tuscany, for lunch the next day. Maybe it was the air, maybe it was Prada maybe it was because we were in a foreign country but I was able to sway him that day. He walked out of the store feeling somewhat duped yet proud nonetheless. As soon as we got home I knew I had a convert when he immediately pulled them out of the bag and put them on……he still adheres to being an anti-fashionista.

Please do one for women though....we love your unique sensibility.

Saturdays Surf NYC looks like a whimsical little shop. I can imagine young city boys to fit thirtysomethings and even fortysomethings stopping by to purchase a new athletic hobby to try out on the surf on Coney Island or farther East on Long Island.

These shops are so refreshing to see. Downtown Manhattan is definitely a different world next to how claustophobic midtown can get.

Sounds like a fun afternoon. Hope your friend had a blast!

ah, alessandro squarzi - an official unofficial star of italian street style. the very same man through whose showroom representation we're enjoying acquaintance with dunderdon and dondup, etc. lovely to know that he is just as creative with his business attitude as he is with his sartorial one. japanese are simply fixated with his style. just look at "leon" and "men's non-no" - these premiere menswear mags are documenting his every move. come pitti he's unavoidable and welcome site. so refreshing to see a committed and passionate professional who travels for inspiration to see new stuff. not just another feigning jadedness exec rolling his eyes at the call from another unknown with pleas for appointment.

well, it is quite good of you to show him a worthwhile side of new york creative retail universe. personally i admire his concise masculine style which understated but inventive and always always age appropriate. middle age never looked that good. i bet he is fun to be around as well.

good portraits! sense of intimacy is coming through since your subject is so relaxed and comfortable in the presence of big deal photografer.

Blogger Sig. Nonloso said ... (6:25 AM) : 

Yes, American shops in NYC are very good at making an interior appear as if it were 100 years old but, to be honest, lately I wonder why they do so. J. Crew on lower Broadway does this and I can't help but almost laugh every time I walk past, remembering the (far preferable) magazine shop it used to be not very long ago and imagining how some tourists might swallow the whole country store interior as though it were "authentic".

I find it an odd paradox that on the one hand, America insists on its youth & naivete & innocence (guffaw), while on the other hand strains to ground itself in a bogus authenticity conjured up wholesale in fake "old country stores". Or maybe it's no paradox at all--just two sides of the same bogus coin.

All of those places look like an adventure to experience - even the storefronts look curiously inviting. Here in CA, so many no longer know how to dress or even care to - the symphony, dinner, drinks... it is sad. These stores look like they could reinvigorate with as much style as a man can handle according to his own meager taste (with some help)... like from Kirk. Would accept HIS help any day!

Alessandro clearly was in great hands. The last picture proves it - wonderful smile/really lights up his face (love the blue jacket)!

Scott, this is truly great. Will definitely check out your recommendations next time I am in NYC. I know this would go beyond your house style (which by the way I love) but have you thought about putting together a quarterly video along these lines - places that have the right feel that you hit regularly. The Intel / Visual Life short made me hope you might begin to do that kind of thing. This has really made me wish that happens.

Scott, I am fascinated by these series of photos and your writing. By and far, my most favorite photograph has to be the last one. I would have to call this portrait in nature. The colors of the margarita, the straw, his blazer, and engaging smile are all so incredible. All the photos in this shoot are out of this world. As always, fantastic work Scott.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:39 AM) : 

Ah, Scott, this is awesome!

I have to say that your work is always great, but this post really exceeds.

Every time there's a picture of Alessandro I get really excited - he just seems to nail it every time, and there's a great eneregy about him as well. Just look at that last portrait with the blue jacket, electric yet approachable. His play with the traditional Italian style together with these touches of Japanese and American style is simply inspirational.

He should come over more often:)

Fact, potentially easy to overlook: Saturdays Surf has exceptional coffee, regardless of whether you surf.

I stopped in every day during my visit from Portland, Maine, which also has exceptional coffee, very high quality (and very cold) surf, and a growing contingent of well-dressed residents. Really good beer, too.

I'm absolutely loving this 'Sartorialist tour of cool small shops' thing. Can you do one in each of your favourite cities please? The pictures are gorgeous and make me feel I'm with you and Alessandro on your shopping jaunt. The Aldens look fabulous; I've not seen them before. My husband would love to own several pairs, I'm sure.
Ciao, L. x x
