Elizabeth Beer and Brian Janusiak, the enterprising duo behind womenswear boutique Project No. 8, launched this much-hyped Lower East Side menswear shop in June 2009. The sunlit store is spacious and minimalist, with light-wood furniture (from German brand e15), leafy potted plants, and designer sneakers providing flashes of color in the white-on-white space. Like its sister store, No. 8b stocks a curated mix of clothing and accessories from a cache of European and New York–based designers: Bless and Kostas Murkudis from Berlin, Natalia Brilli from Paris, Stephan Schneider from Antwerp, and Salvor and Kiosk from New York, among others. Apart from the fresh-from-the-runway designer apparel — summer suits, button-down shirts, lightweight tanks, and trousers — the accessories are particularly covetable, ranging from Raf Simons for Eastpak bags to L.G.R. Sunglasses from Rome. Fall brings menswear collections from designers like Christian Wijnants and Tom Scott.
