Now Open | Suitsupply Madison Avenue Store

Suitsupply has opened doors to its second New York City location, this time staking claim in Manhattan’s Madison Avenue shopping district. The detail of the shop was unveiled at last night’s opening party and it’s everything we’ve come to expect from the European brand. Similar to their Broome Street location, the new space at 59th and Madison is perched on the second floor though the view from these glass walls is more inspiring than that of the iconic Soho shop.

In trademark Suitsupply fashion, the new space features a tailoring kiosk front and center, ready to perform alterations on the spot, as well as an expanded made-to-measure program and the full Suitsupply collection, which includes tailoring, knitwear, shoes, and accessories, plus a new, exclusive collaboration with GQ Best New American Designer Baldwin Denim, all unified by Suitsupply interior designer Floor Enneking’s bold use of graphics and color, and innovative, inviting product displays.

Ryan at Inventory gives us a look inside Self Edge’s new Los Angeles store. “They sell a very focused selection of high quality garments to an educated consumer. Kiya is a smart business man, a funny guy and a passionate retailer.” The new shop will surely reaffirm these notions and help the brand to continue its growth process. The layout is clean and welcoming and will surely gain traction with its North La Brea Avenue location.

Inside Rapha Cycle Club NYC

This weekend marked the opening of Rapha‘s first retail venture on US soil. We turned you guys to the cycling playground pre-launch, but now that we’ve gotten a chance to scope out the finished product, here’s a look on the inside. The space is pretty open, with plenty to do. They’ve got a cafe, run by Third Rail Coffee, books for purchase, as well historical items from the archives which included helmets and cycling caps. The gear is pretty tremendous as well, and ranged from strict gear for your daily stroll to more casual clothing like button-downs and khakis.
