Yup, it’s getting cooler outside. (Okay, so maybe we overstated that first part.)
So really, nothing you can’t handle.
But this should help: Steven Alan, the New York–based shop of classically casual shirts and other handsome things, now open as of a couple hours ago in Cady’s Alley.
Inside: just some concrete floors, some exposed ductwork and some plywood shelving. But you’re not here for the plywood. You’re here for their ultrasoft, made-in-NY Collegiate Shirts, in preppy-but-not-too-preppy plaids and heather gray. Or maybe the military-style wool shirt jacket, the better to extend your rooftopping season. Or perhaps an automatic-movement watch with a cordovan-leather band.
But unlike Donald Trump, Steven himself doesn’t require that his name be plastered on everything. Which is why you’ll find Wolverine’s classic 1000 Mile Boots, duffels and messenger bags by Filson, and canvas sneakers from Japan.
And just for the hell of it, you can also grab a cedar-smelling candle, some rhubarb jam from upstate New York and some preserved-lemon syrup.
Goes well with what’s in your flask.
