This 33-year-old UES staple brought its classic, American-made duds to Brooklyn Heights. Inspired by the neighborhood’s eclectic architecture, brothers Jay and Kevin McLaughlin outfitted their 420-square-foot boutique (now the brand’s 42nd store nationwide) with bright orange walls, plaid carpeting, bamboo shelving and cherry cabinets. Gents can indulge their inner prepster with spiffy silk bow ties ($45) and critter-embroidered Devon cotton shorts ($95–$125); ladies can channel Jackie O in Carolyn cropped, bell-sleeve cardigans ($225) and figure-flattering patterned Harbor dresses ($165), accessorized with chic woven rattan clutches ($160–$185).
