Shopping Hell's Kitchen

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

While the itty-bitty swimwear ($35–$120) and second-skin tanks ($30–$40) cater to the uninhibited Hell’s Kitchen guy, there’s something in this casual shop for gents of all stripes. The large, 2,700-square-foot shop is housed in a former 1920s speakeasy featuring decor inspired by the Industrial Revolution, such as a torpedo cart used in Pearl Harbor, a giant gear behind the register and beverage carts from the ’60s, which display vintage Coca-Cola graphic tees ($40–$45). Stylish guys can nab Scotch & Soda cotton polos ($50) and G-Star light-wash straight-leg jeans ($190). There are also chic accessories, including WeSC clip-on plaid bow ties ($40), Love Nail Tree charm key necklaces ($30), G-Star nylon laptop bags ($230) and Pura Vida handmade bracelets ($9), which support local artisans in Costa Rica. Bring home must-have extras such as Archipelago natural body lotion ($30) and tin candles ($14).
