For the debut of his new men’s footwear line (a spin-off of the popular women’s brand Dolce Vita), designer Joel Rich has opened this cozy man cave stocked with everything guys need—including booze. While the shop’s main draw is shoes—the collection ranges from classic styles like neutral suede lace-ups ($198) to punkier options, such as calf-high zip-up boots ($289)—the small courtesy bar, offering Brooklyn Brewery beers and highballs of Bulleit bourbon, offers shoppers ample reason to linger in the intimate, wood-paneled space. But you don’t need a buzz to appreciate J.D.Fisk’s small-but-solid collection of clothing from a handful of up-and-coming menswear lines. Look for smart basics, including Norse Projects rugged sweaters and jackets ($140–$400), Penny Stocks classic chambray shirts ($38–$62) and Shades of Grey wear-everywhere casual trousers ($92–$121).
