Park Slope denim destination Rivet just expanded to Boerum Hill, opening a two-room space on the corner of Smith and Bergen. Inside, the vibe is all-American, with exposed brick walls and vintage design objects. Jeans for men and women hang on racks, but they're also stored in a shelving unit made up of wooden boxes and accessible by ladder, like some sort of denim library.
The new store carries most of the same labels as the 7th Avenue location: J.Brand, AG, American Vintage, Ben Sherman, LA Made. But because it's twice as big, there's also space for more jewelry (including geometric pieces from In God We Trust) and more shoes (we liked multi-colored flat sandals from Dolce Vita, as well as more leather goods, bags, candles and antiques.
