    You may be familiar with our love for Ernest Alexander, the dapper-dude men's line that constantly has us swooning (we even collab-ed on a bag with Mr. EA). Now, the designer will be bringing his signature tailored jackets and rugged accessories to Soho, with the arrival of his new NYC flagship store. Designed to resemble a modern-day trading post, the bros boutique will allow style-savvy New Yorkers to shop the entire collection, and admire the designer's own collection of antique knick-knacks that decorate the space.

    Ernest Alexander, 98 Thompson Street (between Prince and Spring streets); 800-770-6658.
