From now until Christmas, we're probably going to hear about a new pop-up shop every hour on the hour, but the Pop-Up Flea deserves special attention. The fourth annual installment of the menswear event kicks off tomorrow and runs all weekend at 159 Bleecker Street in Noho.
Founders Randy Goldberg and Michael Williams (the man behind a little style blog called A Continuous Lean) have stocked the place with vendors ranging from Red Wing and Levi's to Billykirk and Gitman Brothers Vintage. Big or small, all of the brands embrace that Americana aesthetic that's been so huge in menswear for the past couple years. But although it's fashionable, the merchandise isn't too precious for the Ron Swansons on your gift list, some of whom might just appreciate a flannel shirt or a handmade football.
