Best Men’s Accessories

  • Palmer Trading Company

    137 Sullivan St., nr. Prince St. 347-429-4342

Palmer Trading Company’s accessories are good-looking and well made, from their thick merino-wool socks from Vermont to lifetime-lasting Maine-made leather boots (courtesy of Oak Street Bootmakers). Co-owners Willy Chavarria and David Ramirez have recently expanded their in-house line, which includes a leather-and-waxed-canvas laptop bag ($385), weekend duffels ($325), and neutral messenger bags (from $310).
