Wooden Sleepers

After running a successful online shop and flea-market booths, Brian Davis found a permanent home for his curated collection of vintage men’s classics in Red Hook. The store focuses on military items (versions of De Niro’s Taxi Driver jacket go for about $150), outerwear and Americana gear for guys from as early as the 1930s. Sweaters start around $80; small items like wool caps are $10 and up.

Objectify 139

Enter Maria Candanoza’s badass boutique, where she sells the coolest collectible books, prints and baubles in the city—affordably. The joint exposes the work of young artists like Candanoza, who aims to provide unique art and kitchy gifts like Statue of Liberty candles ($12), Sparkle Diva mink coozies ($35) and Leonardo DiCaprio tees ($30), which you won’t find anywhere else. And you can meet the artists during in-store meet-ups scheduled each month.

Seraphine

This British maternity line is a favorite among celebrities—we hear Kate Middleton is a fan—and since the brand recently dropped its U.S. anchor in Soho, soon-to-be moms no longer need to rummage the city for hard-to-find pregnancy ware that rarely caters to their fashionable needs. Stop by the spacious boutique, which carries everything from skinny jeans ($117) and nursing jumpers ($76) to lace evening gowns ($259).

Stieber's Sweet Shoppe

This new candy bar may give Dylan’s a run for its money. Step in the Greenwich Village sweet spot, which smells of freshly baked fudge ($18 per pound) and salivate over 250 types of gummies featuring unexpected flavors like spicy red hot chilli pepper (for the brave). There are more than 400 options of bulk candy here, but die-hard cocoa fans can fill their own box with chocolate-covered Oreos and pretzels to oblige a demanding sweet tooth ($8–$20).

At Wilderness

Since 2012, herbalist Anit Hora has created budget-friendly skin-care products for her beauty line, Mullein & Sparrow. You’ll find the complete line (and more) at this new apothecary shop, which she co-owns with Lori Labedz. Look for locally made remedies like Himalayan bath salts ($40) and facial detox kits ($25), as well as merch from Brooklyn faves like Catbird (rose-gold threadbare rings are $44) and MCMC (Hunter roll-on perfume oil is $45).

Boerum Hill

Sisley Paris

This French brand is family-owned, so expect a homey feel at its new West Village outpost. Unwind in the Parisian-flavored space, discuss your skin-care needs with on-site experts and shop high-end beauty products, such as the 'So Intense' volumizing mascara ($67). The store houses a spa “cabine” and private makeup room so you can splurge on a full facial (60mins $200) and get a free makeup application.

Mixed martial arts is growing in popularity, and so is this minichain. Following locations in Williamsburg and on Long Island, this new outpost on the Lower East Side is all about selling goods to fans and fighters alike. Stock up on gear like Cleto Reyes limited-edition gold gloves ($220), East Coast MMA Fight Team hoodies ($70) and Scramble Warriors T-shirts ($45) before stepping into the ring.

Bhoomki Home

Swati Argade is all about offering goods that are environmentally and socially ethical. Her original Brooklyn boutique focused on women’s clothing, and at the designer’s new store (just a couple of blocks away), you’ll find home goods items that also fall under those socially responsible themes. Standouts include Coyuchi bath linens ($7 and up), Muny quilts ($260) and decorative pillows by John Robshaw (starting at $175).

COS

Folks in the fashion crowd are obsessed with H&M's pricier sister brand. The first NYC location finally opened in December 2014, and it looks like it was worth the wait. The 4,950 square-foot, modern retail space features four floors filled with sharp, minimalist sepearates for men and women. We have our eye on pieces like sweaters with leather details on the shoulders ($135) and textured wool trousers ($125) for men as well as flap pocket tops ($99) and clean edge wool-coats ($225) for women.

Michael Kors

This big-time designer’s Soho store is his largest outpost in the world. That means, for the first time ever, Kors has enough space to feature his men’s collection in one of his namesake shops. In addition to the complete men’s line (which includes sportswear, shoes and more), the three-story, 22,000-square-foot boutique also features women’s clothing and splurgeworthy timepieces, like the JetMaster automatic watch ($395), fragrances and even tech accessories like the Duracell Powermat charging kit ($140).

Ernest Alexander Design Shop

Instead of opening a new store, designer Ernest Alexander decided to take things a little more personal with his New York customers. The designer is inviting shoppers to stop by his NoMad studio and not only check out his men’s clothing and accessories, but also get an inside look at the design process. Among the preppy neckties ($85), oxford shirts ($155) and canvas messenger bags ($345), you’ll see the materials, inspiration boards and sketches that came before the finished products. Oh, and he offers you a glass of whiskey while you browse (and take advantage of free next-day NYC delivery).

Gramercy & Flatiron

Frankie

We were bummed to see local fave Pixie Market (trendy clothes! übercheap prices!) close up shop. But before we could settle into a deep depression, the owners reemerged with Frankie. Think of it as the mature and ultra-chic version of Pixie Market. The shop caters to the career-minded woman, so instead of cocktail dresses or crop tops, you’ll find more sophisticated items like cocoon tops ($66), alpaca boyfriend coats ($289) and more from international indie labels.
