If you're a man in the NYC area,, or you know someone who is, prick up your ears. J. Crew, which has done such good work outfitting dudes with a touch of taste at their spot-on Liquor Store shop and two other bros-only locations in Manhattan, is stepping up their game even further with their first-ever boutique dedicated to the finer things in men's apparel. Open yesterday— just down the street from the Liqour Store—the Ludlow Shop At 50 Hudson in Tribeca focuses on – yes – suiting in a stripped-down, Mid-Century modern take on the old bespoke tailor's workspace. Naturally, some of their more laid-back options will be on hand (it is J. Crew after all), but it's shaping up to be a go-to suiting resource ready to compete with the ever-expanding options for well-kempt fellas in the city. So again, if you're chromosomally XY or you just want your BF to look a little more presentable, it's worth a stop in.
