I love wearing the slippers from Stubbs & Wootton (987 Madison Ave between 76th and 77th Sts; 212-249-5200, because you can either dress them up or down. They go super well with fitted jeans and a blazer, but also are perfect for a black-tie event.”—Brian Mazza, 28, Gramercy; co-owner of Windsor Custom and director of hospitality for Paige Management Group

I shop for accessories and home furnishings at Bergdorf Goodman [pictured] (754 Fifth Ave at 58th St; 212-753-7300,, although the men’s store across the street (745 Fifth Ave at 58th St, 212-753-7300) is quite tempting.

The clothes there tell a story, and it’s interesting to imagine the person who had [the garment] prior to me.
