just opened a permanent Manhattan location. The Lower East Side outpost carries the brand's in-house trousers and jeans along with a new selection of double-faced shirts made of luxe Japanese fabric, which co-owner Mike Kuhle admits cost him "a small fortune" to obtain.

($475). Mike is looking forward to the coming release of Epaulet sport coats, which at $365, will allow customers to assemble a full Epaulet suit for the extremely reasonable price of $550. His attention to detail is so astute that he made sure the fabric exactly matches the color of some of the more popular trousers.
