Union workers, college kids, and weekend renovators alike head to this Chelsea outpost for affordable, industrial-grade clothing and accessories. Family owned since 1963, Dave’s New York is a zero-frills establishment, like its inventory: Multiple styles of traditional, American brands like Carhartt and Levi’s jeans and shirts line the walls; camouflage pants and outerwear hang in racks throughout. Up front, shoppers peruse the substantial selection of work boots and shoes from names like Red Wing and Timberland Pro Series. Though most of the garments are designed for men, female shoppers can scour the aisles for smaller sizes in Dickies T-shirts as well as unisex overalls and sweatshirts.
