After 40 years in retail, Steev West Fourth’s co-owner Steev Eitelberg knows something about the clothing business. His previous shop, Steev 19, was a Jersey Shore mainstay for more than two decades, drawing vacationers and rock stars alike (including pal Bruce Springsteen, whom the conga-playing Eitelberg once accompanied onstage). After closing his Garden State outpost, Eitelberg followed his summertime clientele home to South Brooklyn, opening this Gravesend mini department store in September 2007. Behind the sizable windows and granite-textured facade, the 10,000-square-foot, white-washed interior houses a mix of young designers (Jay Godfrey, 3.1 phillip lim) and fashion mainstays (Missoni, Michael Kors). Women will find tweed blazers, party dresses, and printed camis along with more casual fare like vintage-inspired tees, stylish sweats, and denim. They can sort through additional goodies at the cosmetics counter, where Bond No. 9 perfume and beauty boosters like Phyto and MD Skincare are available. In the men's section, pale pink Bermudas and breezy tees mingle with handsome button-ups and smart suit jackets. And in back, the “Black Room” holds high-end men’s brands including Roberto Cavalli and Brunello Cucinelli.For the Younger Set
