After opening Olive’s Very Vintage women’s shop in 2001, Jen McCulloch introduced this male counterpart just down the Carroll Gardens block in December, 2010. The narrow-dimensioned Olaf’s supplies Brooklyn’s growing “gentleman farmer” contingent with aged Pendleton jackets, midcentury button-downs, and Smith Corona typewriters. The stock comes from rummage sales and walk-in sellers and is edited with a sharp eye toward upmarket Americana. In a shout-out to natural fibers, the women have instituted a strict no-polyester policy to preserve the high-end time capsule theme.
