When it comes to The X-Piles (a girl’s collection of men’s polos, boxers, and softest-ever sweaters), there’s no mystery: Life without dude clothing is a drag.
Get your fix — without the breakup — at Carson Street Clothiers, now open in Soho.
Founded by attorneys Brian Trunzo and Matt Breen, the menswear shop has all the prerequisite masculine trappings: reclaimed industrial worktables, whiskey-colored sofas, and wood.
Pick up leather and canvas bags from Mismo and Want Les Essentiels de la Vie, Linda Farrow sunglasses, and apothecary goods by Blind Barber. Dapper accessories (Fox Umbrellas, Field Notes, Roberu camera straps) make life handsome, while Daines & Hathaway flasks work on the fun.
Sportswear by Patrik Ervell, Michael Bastian, and more, plus CSC’s house line, help real dudes get game. Made-to-measure suits from Roberto Alfonso Felipe are also available (by appointment only).
Because boys can (still) be boys.
Carson Street Clothiers, 63 Crosby Street, between Spring and Broome Streets (212-925-2627 or carsonstreetclothiers.com).
