Goods: Men’s dress/casual shirts, pants and accessories. Designers: More than twenty designers. Owner: Gus Isaacson, who doubles as style expert for the X-chromosome. Vibe: This studio-apartment-sized shop concentrates more on the goods for sale than its interiors, with a no-fuss atmosphere for the dudes; basic off-white walls, standard lighting and hanger racks are the main décor but, really, it’s all about the shirts. Price Range: Moderate-Expensive. The Look: The guy wants a shirt for every occasion—one that the other guy won’t have—and the selection ranges from professional to rock-star edge. Shopper’s Perks: The associates are always ready to help find the perfect shirt for any occasion. They offer sizing instruction. Only six shirts of each of 300 styles are available to maximize uniqueness of product.
