The Ernest Alexander flagship at 98 Thompson Street will open on Friday, making this the brand's first official stand-alone store. Late last year, a pop-up shop debuted on Clinton Street, but it seems as though that's been traded in for a spot further west. Refinery29 has a sneak peek of what you can find inside, which includes the entire menswear collection, along with Alexander's own collection of knick-knacks for decoration, which may or may not include this oar.
As for the rest of the offerings, expect to find sturdy messenger bags displayed above a selection of outerwear, denim tacked to the wall, tons of button-downs, and belts, ties, and more bags displayed next to lanterns and antlers.
