The shopping options on the Lower East Side just got a lot better for men: Assembly New York, a new store from LA retail scenster Greg Armas (formerly of the West Coast's Scout) has thrown open its doors at 174 Ludlow Street between Houston and Stanton Streets. We were alerted to the place by Refinery29, who paid it a visit earlier today (they were kind enough to send along their images of the space, which we've galleried for you above). The boutique, which opened to the public on Saturday, houses a collection of new menswear from a group of international designers (Ksubi, Endovanera, Corpus) mixed in with what Armas refers to as "relevant" vintage. He's also selling a few antiques, and an assortment of women's jewelry. Armas told Racked that he picked Ludlow because (a) it's an extremely active street and (b) the area's got a nice heritage to it. Drop by and welcome him to New York City.
