A good man.
The other sock.
And we’re going to toss a reindeer-leather bomber jacket in there.
Such as you might find at The World of Stephen F, an abode of all kinds of intrepid dapperness in Meatpacking, freshly open for the first time in America.
Stephen’s just a Swede with a Washington Street storefront, a lot of Italian-made things, the occasional blue-suede, fur-collar bomber, a fan in Henrik Lundqvist and a dream. Only that stuff.
And here’s his place. One that looks like your basic high-quality haberdashery and also like a suede rainbow. A place where you can definitely pick up your perfectly tailored staple pinstripe suit for this fall and, while you’re at it, a pair of teal penny loafers and a green-velvet, square-end tie. There’s, um, a spectrum of boldness to explore.
And if you’d like to explore that with fewer people around, give a wink or scratch your nose or just ask to head into the cellar lounge to have a glass of champagne and a sartorial discussion.
Like what’s next after reindeer leather.
