Previously available only at Barneys New York, Saks Fifth Avenue and Brooklyn Denim Co., this North Carolina denim brand now has an NYC store to call its own. The 900-square-foot space resembles a tailor’s workshop, showcasing the trademark denim ($215–$350) on hangers suspended from the ceiling. Although jeans are pricey, no two pairs are identical, since only 200 are handmade in North Carolina mills each week (and are signed by the sewer). Ladies can try on stretch mid-rise styles ($225) or sleek skinnies ($225), while gentlemen can nab raw denim jeans ($250–$325) and slim-fit versions ($250) in deep jewel tones. There’s also other clothing available, such as women’s cotton-and-silk polka-dot tops ($205) and mandarin-collar shirtdresses ($385–$425), and guys’s calfskin leather bomber jackets ($1,050).
