Jay Kos often says that food—its colors, textures, and tastes—has a heavy hand in influencing his design approach. It’s fitting, then, that his Nolita shop has its own custom-designed kitchen, where he can prepare snacks for customers to enjoy as they sift through the dandified duds tucked away in the store’s many armoires. The clothes have the panache of a peacock, and the sparkly blue vests, banana-yellow blazers, and lime-green suede bucks certainly aren’t for the timid. Especially daring fops will appreciate the safari of exotica on hand: astrakhan-fur dinner jackets, alligator-leather vests, and python- and ostrich-skin pants. Yet relatively conservative items like wool and linen suits, tweed coats, corduroy pants, and cashmere scarves command attention, too, owing to their noticeably high-quality fabrics and artisan craftsmanship. On-site tailoring is available by appointment, though “walk-ins with taste” are also welcome.
