After taking over the family business, the Giddon brothers reinvented their grandfather’s old–New York haberdashery by combining a stock of upscale urban menswear lines with the diversity of a large department store. On the corner of bustling Union Square, the first floor is full of preppy sportswear, with basics like linen button-downs, cargo pants, and polo shirts by designers like Penguin, Theory, and Scotch + Soda lining the shelves, and a rainbow of designer silk ties along the back wall. Downstairs, an inventory of roughly 2,000 suits guarantee that whatever your physique, age, or style, you can walk in and find something flattering, be it from a traditional Italian brand like Canali and Corneliani or one of the younger, slim-cut numbers by Zegna or Hugo Boss. Custom and made-to-measure options, on-site tailoring, and some old-timer sales staff are a throwback to the golden age of suit-buying, making the whole experience personal and painless.
This independent, user-friendly store carries suits ($395–$1,795) and tuxedos ($595–$1,695) by big-name menswear designers like Canali, Hugo Boss, and Ted Baker. Z Zegna suits are especially popular.
