Best Belts

  • Badichi

    159 Prince St., nr. Thompson St.; 212-533-2107

    At this tiny new shop, buyers call all the shots; you choose your belt from hundreds of strap materials, widths, and colors, then a buckle from the scores displayed on the walls (there are thousands of possible combinations). The belt is then cut to your waist measurement and assembled in the back of the store in a few minutes. For $60 to $400, you can walk out with a classic everyday style, or a bedazzled number for a night on the town.

Where can you find the city’s top dog groomer? Last-minute tailor? Beef tongue? We eat, drink, dance, shop, shvitz, and trampoline our way around the city, not to mention poll scores of in-the-know colleagues, hard-partying friends, opinionated family members, and, this year, a team of guest expert bloggers to bring you answers to all of the above questions, and hundreds more, in the form of our annual “Best of New York” issue.
