This spring, the World War II–era shoe-polish brand Shinola relaunched—not with a new buffing formula but rather a line of classic, leather-strapped men’s and women’s ­watches, all handcrafted in Detroit. Now Shinola has unveiled its first New York store (177 Franklin St., nr. Greenwich St.; 917-728-3000). Anchored by a spiral staircase and topped with a vaulted skylight, the space features American-manufactured everything, heavy on the leather: the label’s watches (from $475) as well as its leather-­saddled three-speed bicycles ($1,950); structured leather handlebar bags by Detroit Cargo ($90); colorful baseballs and footballs from the New Jersey–based Leather Head Sports (from $40); and, of course, Shinola shoe polish ($8.50). The front of store features a newsstand-style outpost of downtown café the Smile.
