Sketches of Soho's Nautical Menswear Shop Onassis

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Welcome to Shops Illustrated, a Racked feature in which artist Jennifer Hoyden sketches New York City stores. For each entry, she'll draw a street view, an interior look, and some items currently hanging on the racks.

The Onassis (no relation) men's shop in Soho is full of props—of the vintage, seafaring voyager variety—along with clothing suitable for your next rugged adventure, urban or otherwise. The brand aspires to a small-company feel with big, generous gestures like free coffee daily in the store's clubby, Wifi-equipped cafe and free Prosecco on Friday evenings. They give and give, but it's pretty clear they're just getting warmed up.
