New Kid on the Block: Rag & Bone

rag-and-bone-tribeca-mens-storerag-and-bone-tribeca-suitRag & Bone‘s ninth Manhattan outpost, in the former Bubble Lounge, is the company’s first standalone men’s shop. The N. Moore leg of the L-shaped space is devoted to dressier wares such as suits and coats, while the W. Broadway leg is where you’ll find jeans, T-shirts, and so on. The whole place is done up as a luxe mancave, with a turntable, Wii, Apple TV, whiskey served at the bar (a first for the brand, which usually offers Champagne and beer), and a small selection of gear—also for sale—including Grado headphones and Leica binoculars. Much of the furniture was handcrafted by Rag & Bone itself, and the dressing rooms were given over to artists; each one has a peephole where you can watch time-lapse video of the room’s art being created. Of special note: The crushed Porsche, from a 2015 ad campaign, now housed in a vitrine (the floor had to be reinforced to bear it), and near the N. Moore door, a 1939 photo of the building.

Rag & Bone is at 228 W. Broadway and 8 N. Moore, 646-277-8362;
