After hosting a series of local holiday pop-ups, designer and founder Peter Buchanan-Smith opens his first permanent store, hawking outdoorsy goods for the nature-starved urbanite. Rugged wooden crates display colorful bags ($78–$398), while built-in racks are hung with house-brand men’s wax-coated jackets ($348–$590). A peg board shows off all the gear and tools you’ll need for outdoor survival, including handsome axes ($135–$350) that are heated and shaped by four-generation axe makers in Maine, then painted and finished locally in the NYC studio. Stock up on everyday essentials, such as wool throws ($196), Randolph Engineering aviators ($229), nature-centric how-to books ($6–$375) and solid-color cotton tees ($38). Check back often, as one new item is added weekly. You can also attend weekend workshops ($45) on field medicine or ax restoration
