Every Friday we filter through all of the online sale noise and grade your best weekend sale-ing options out there...
And since we’re heading into the sale smorgasbord of Presidents’ Day weekend, we’ve got a supersize edition with more sales, more steals and more handsomeness.
Tonight: Williamsburg does its best Okinawa, as Hickoree’s becomes Hickoree’s Japan.
The three-week pop-up shop is taking over Floor Two with an entirely Japanese-crafted collection, as 20-plus makers deliver exclusive collaborations amidst a slew of inventory debuting stateside for the first time ever.
Historically, there’s been a pretty wide creative divide between the guys designing your clothes and the folks selling them.
But as of late, we’ve noticed a rash of new joint projects emerge, connecting innovative designers with our favorite menswear shops across the country. And we certainly won’t say we’ve hated it. So to honor this newfound camaraderie, we’ve taken a moment to round up the handsomest final products of their collaborative efforts.
You may have noticed over the past weekend: you weren’t the only person wearing a pair of white canvas sneakers—or “plimsolls” to the Anglophiles—not by a long shot. Hence, it might be time to start considering a pair cut from a different, more colorful cloth.
Sale season’s in the air, and the second annual summer sample shindig over at Hickoree’s is at the top of our weekend to-do list.
For today and tomorrow only, they’ve turned Floor Two into a pseudo-warehouse pop-up, packed to the beams with overstock and never-produced samples from five stellar NYC brands.
Designers from Stanley & Sons, Left Field, Battenwear, 8.15 August Fifteenth and The Hill-side will all be stopping by the scene, so there’s a pretty good shot you’ll be able to seek styling advice straight from the source.
We swung by last night to check the scene and found everything from swim trunks to trousers, shearling bombers, anoraks, henleys, oxfords, ties, tees and seriously handsome bags, among a host of other gems. They’ve even brought in a rack of goods for the ladies in your life by way of 8.15.
