New York City is undoubtedly the greatest city on earth (don't even bother taking to the comments section to dispute this), but it's fucking HUGE and its sheer volume can be inundating to an uniformed newcomer. Daunting at times, the beauty of this city is that there is not just something for everyone, but EVERYTHING for everyone. Into Yoga? There's a studio every other block. Are you a vegan? New York been had self-hating gourmet. In particular, New York has the best of the best for #menswear nerds, from clothes made just across the East River to the rarest of high-top sneakers and everything in between.
But as you know, #menswear doesn't stop with just clothes. This shit is a lifestyle, which is fantastic because New York is a black hole of menswear culture—we've got the restaurants and bike shops and bars and whatever-the-fucks to match. It's a blessing and a curse, really, and explains why once #menswear guys move here they basically never leave.
With that in mind, it's important to know where exactly the best #menswear culture can be found, especially if you aren't from here and need a strategy for conquering the skreets. Luckily we have your best interests at heart here at Four Pins and have filtered all that data into the above list of the most important streets The Big Apple has to offer if you're of the #menswear persuasion. Lists that tell you where the best spots in the city exist, sure, but a basic bitch list of places dispersed all over Manhattan and Brooklyn can more intimidating than they are useful. But on the real, I ain't even wanna talk about this list. I just wanted to say I gave Schlossman his first TV.
