Better Know a Webshop: Grailed

You Should Visit This Site Before Dressing Yourself

By Geoff Rynex ·
Welcome to Better Know a Webshop, where we give you the rundown on one of the very many online places there are to buy the things you want to wear.

Shop: Grailed. Think an aesthetically pleasing eBay dedicated solely to elite men’s style, or a more niche, less obvious version of the RealReal, but with some impressive collaborators.

Home Base: New York/everywhere.

Our Favorite Labels: They’ve really got everything, but if you’re looking for stuff you’d normally have to wait in a ridiculous line for, Takahiromiyashita The Soloist, Bianca Chandon and Fear of God.

Best Quality: The chance to buy unused items that may have been snatched up by, say, Adidas Confirmed bots, at a cost that’s not much more than retail. Also the chance to score something like a 2002 A.P.C. coat that’d look right at home in all current style contexts.

Extras: A very strong editorial element led by former Four Pins editor-in-chief Lawrence Schlossman. At one point they had a collection curated straight from Nick Wooster’s closet, along with an in-depth interview with the man. We’d go so far as to call it required men’s style reading in 2017.

What We Like Now:

Thom Browne

Adidas Originals by Alexander Wang


What We’d Like to See More Of: We’re kind of at a loss here.

Geoff Rynex is the only person named Geoff Rynex in the history of mankind. He would rather have the best burger than the best steak, likes hearing bartender stories and spends too much money on clothes.
