Since 1977, the chain of Peter Elliot stores have been Upper East Siders’ last stop before hitting the L.I.E., providing a fix for every eleventh-hour wardrobe crisis that may arise en route to Amagansett. Though a native of Charleston, proprietor Elliot Rabin couldn’t have adopted the cultivated Hamptons aesthetic with more gusto, co-opting practically an entire block of Madison Avenue with four separate outposts and stocking them with enough argyle, plaid, stripes, and checks to make you dizzy. For weekend styles, Peter Elliot Soles covers all the bases with its selection of footwear: Fine leather shoes from Italy and Scotland go with tweedy, well-to-do attire; argyle socks and saddle shoes match every golfing outfit; and a colorful variety of rubber galoshes work nicely for fishing, gardening, and other rustic activities. Waiting until the last minute can, however, be perilous; the Peter Elliot family is serious about vacation, and customers arriving on Friday afternoons may find the shopkeeper closing up early to beat the traffic to Sagaponack himself.

Key Departments


While this shop carries a full line of men's clothing and accessories, it's the cuff-link selection that made us take notice. Check out the fantastic Babette Wasserman "powerballs," round semiprecious stones of amethyst, onyx, and more, or her sterling-silver collection.
