As the only stateside retailer of looks by French menswear designer Emile Lafaurie, Sean is filled with separates ranging from low-key linen blazers ($295–$425) to cotton V-neck tees ($58) that, according to one sales associate we chatted up, “make every guy’s chest look amazing.” Equally amazing are lightweight, creased chinos ($158) and casually cool, elbow-patched button-downs ($118). While the small shop is primarily frequented by gentlemen, ladies can pop in (or while away the time shopping with their guys) to peruse a selection of patterned, linen scarves ($68), draped over a ladderlike, wooden display.
