The focus at this minimalist menswear store in Chinatown is a well-edited mix of under-the-radar international and New York labels, curated by co-owners Elizabeth Beer and Brian Janusiak, who also own the women’s boutique Project No.8 around the corner. Earth-toned clothing is hung neatly along half a dozen racks lining the perimeter of the shop, and include the store’s own brand, Various Projects, which features gems like a nanotechnology button-down shirt with built-in anti-perspirant and aloe ($180). While pricey, the pieces here have an uncanny attention to detail, such as Peter Weismann’s silky reversible briefs ($390), and Martin Margiela’s signature leather shoes ($785), made with extra space for your big toe.
