Now open in Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Billykirk’s brick and mortar shop will serve as both the brand’s retail space and showroom area. Seeing their successes over the last several years, this is a long time coming for the leather and canvas design company. The 750 sq. foot location features a small back patio and a space for customizations. The store carries waxed leather carryalls, schoolboy satchels, totes with dull brass accents, those with a woven diamond wool material, as well as water repellant nylon duffle bags, rucksacks, a new dopp kit, and new belt designs. Billykirk co-founder Chris Bray guarantees oil school foil embossing, steel stamp lettering, and various dies for customers’ personal gains. The shop’s custom designed display and lighting will also display third party items, including ceramic vessels from Brooklyn, iPhone covers with cordovan leather and teak wood backs from Michigan, Faribault Woolen Mill collaboration blankets, brass bottle openers, even so much as art work for sale.
