When Civilianiare opened its Nolita location earlier this year, the California-based brand was already a well-established name on the West Coast. Founded by Lucky Brand Jeans creators Gene Montesano and Barry Perlman, Civilianaire offers up a quality Americana look. The brand is noticeably lacking in women’s offerings, but the men’s collection is quite expansive. The clothing comes in bright prints—plaids, stripes, and ginghams—that stand out against the minimalist décor of the downtown shop. The denim and chambray items are made from high-quality Japanese denim, and, though you won’t find any unique designs here, the store is well stocked on basics, all of which are created in a California factory by a staff of eight.
