Odin curates its labels to maintain a careful mix of the known (Rag & Bone, Trovata) and the get-them-before-they’re-big (currently, Engineered Garments and You Must Create). New merchandise rolls in constantly, not just seasonally, and although the shop leans toward casual separates (Rogues Gallery sweatshirts, Cheap Monday skinny jeans), you can remake an entire wardrobe right on up through a slim-cut Oliver Spencer suit. It’s not all expensive, either; polos start at $39. There are also accessories like Comme des Garçons wallets, Y-3 and Common Projects sneakers, belts, ties, jewelry, even grooming products and objects like clocks and cameras.
