Rackage is a look inside recently-opened stores around town. Today, let's peek inside menswear boutique Sew on Mott Street.
Another day, another Nolita boutique. Thankfully, Sew, a menswear shop that opened a few months ago at 229A Mott Street between Spring and Prince Streets, is something special. The store is a father-son operation; the duo designs and sells blazers, dress shirts, jeans, and suits, all of which are made either in-house or at their local factory space. The family has been working in the business for generations and formerly operated a shop in Brooklyn. At the Mott Street space, gentlemen can purchase pieces off-the-rack, or have anything—smoking jackets, casual sportcoats, etc—custom made. It ain't cheap: Suits range from $1850-4000, blazers are $1350-4000 and shirts cost $175-350. But come on, it's bespoke.
