After working with brands such as Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch and Club Monaco for 17 years, fit specialist Raul Arevalo—along with business and life partner Brad Schmidt—simultaneously launched this menswear line and shop. The storefront reflects the casual, military-inspired design of the clothes with a large painting of a Civil War general and vintage uniform hats decorating the otherwise sparse, white-walled space. Guys can pick up Cadet’s Brooklyn-made utilitarian items, such as historical graphic tees ($44), plaid button-up shirts ($158) and tuxedo-striped trousers ($158). Cadet offers free alterations on every purchase, ensuring midlength shorts ($128), two-tone swim trunks ($108) and Varsity-esque jackets ($248) fit you as if they were custom made.
