Former Crown Heights neighbors Johnny Sagan and Charley Henlee met in 2009 while Sagan was selling used apparel at the Brooklyn Flea. Soon after, they started Snowy Wilderness, a vintage label that aims to provide “husky hipster” fashions for men without 30-inch waists. At their current venture, an outdoorsy temporary shop housed in de Castellane Gallery Annex, you can discover both new and vintage men’s clothing from a rotation of local designers such as SDN, Telfar and Arthur Arbit, plus furniture and fine-art items from NYC favorites like Adam Rogers and Alex Yudzon. Be the life of the party in bright, ’80s-style vintage Wrangler button-down tops ($55), silk ties ($10) and Snowy Wilderness pocket squares ($100–$200). Androgynous Arthur Arbit handmade-to-order suits ($800–$950) aren’t cheap, but you’re guaranteed to be the only person in the room rocking one. If it’s furnishings you’re after, take home Richard Saja cotton, linen and silk blankets ($360) or a seriously pricey but unique Tom Shockley bronze tie sculpture ($28,000).
