Where the runway meets the street

After a quarter of a century on Union Square, Rothman‘s has moved their flagship NYC store a block up the street to a dreamier space on 18th and Park Avenue. They’ve added 4,000 square feet to their previous 7,000 with the aid of a whole team of “architects, designers, store planners, and visual merchandisers” (whatever that last thing is). With more room comes an expanded inventory of suits and other fineries.

Seems safe to say that reclaimed materials have transcended trendiness and become something of a standard. In kind, this new home features original flooring from the early 1900s, fixtures made from old conveyor belts and a handful of display tables made from old fire doors indigenous to the space. The first floor is reserved for tailored stuff and sportswear and the basement for formal wear. Here are some looks at the new digs, along with a shot of the jacket sleeve from a collaboration between Rothman’s and Duckie Brown.
