2. A.P.C. West Village
267 W. 4th St., nr. Perry St.; 212-755-2523

5. Gant Rugger
353 Bleecker St., nr. Charles St.; 212-620-5949
An industrial-preppy boutique that carries basics with cheeky names—the Kick-Ass Oxford ($125), wool Smarty Pants ($295)—as well as more formal, tailored suiting.

6. Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers
351 Bleecker St., nr. W. 10th St.; 212-929-2763

304 Bleecker St., nr. Barrow St.; 212-255-6151
And this isn’t your father’s J. Press either.

382 Bleecker St., nr. Charles St.; 212-929-0304
The stark white West Village outpost carries colorful Marc by Marc items like red-star-printed hats ($98) and bright-blue wool coats ($728).
