New York native Alexander Olch launched his line of sophisticated men’s accessories in 2002. Previously available only at upscale retailers such as Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman, Olch debuts his first brick-and-mortar store for his designs. The shop is organized categorically: Olch’s signature bowties ($110) and neckties ($110–$150)—which come in an array of colors and patterns, and are completely customizable—are presented in glossy wooden drawers and arranged according to fabric type. Belts ($130), scarves ($220–$360) and the newly introduced work shirts ($320) are all displayed separately on countertops. Look for velvety corduroy bowties ($110), polka-dot pocket squares ($60) and plaid cashmere scarves ($360).
