The heritage trend in menswear might feel a little tired, but Jon Caramanica thinks Hickoree's Floor Two gives it new life. The second-floor shop, on a not-fully-gentrified block in South Williamsburg, sells high-quality menswear and old-school toys (a slingshot is $21.) What sets it apart, writes Caramanica, is the owners' shared eye for detail. "Somewhere else, you could buy a work jacket with outer pockets from, say, Engineered Garments; here you can buy the vintage “bleu de travail” jacket ($400) for the full Bill Cunningham effect." [NYT]
