He’s your man for all seasons. Your boy for all boroughs. Your master of ceremonies — so on with the show already.
The bulging muscles of your boardwalk strong man will ripple in a cozy, classic union suit (Galaxy Army & Navy, 124 West 30th Street; 212-736-1166).
Your sword-swallowing pal will enjoy a swig of Lucid wormwood absinthe, legal here for the first time since 1912 (Park Avenue Liquor Shop, 292 Madison Avenue; 212-685-2442). Compare this green fairy to the Kübler.
That ratty top hat won’t do. Man needs a brand new suit that looks old from a brand new store that looks old (TheCast, 119 Ludlow Street; 212-228-2020).
Tightrope walkers can get a grip with a cheeky pair of waffle sneaks from Soho’s Billionaire Boys Club (456 West Broadway; 212-777-2225).
A performer, eh? Then he’ll love Richard Paul Milone’s hip-hop astro-rap coloring book (Annie O., 105 Rivington Street; 212-475-3490).
He’s no Kobayashi, but the dude loves to eat. A hard cover book of the best food shops in NYC will satisfy his voracious appetitie (Brooklynski, 145 Driggs Avenue; 718-389-0901). Go a step up from stemless with the new Tyrol collection.
Your fire-eating boyfriend will be glad that you’ve picked up on the pyro behavior with a small Chimo hanging fireplace. No chimney or wood required (it uses clean-burning ethanol fuel) — what a trick!
Now give yourself a round of applause.
