Within the past year, the custom-belt brand Badichi has opened five stores in Manhattan, the most recent of which opened last month at 637 Broadway. Other than that, there are two shops in Soho, one on Bleecker, and another on West 57th Street. Inside each store are walls lined with Italian and South American leathers, and an expansive collection of handcrafted buckles. And if you're having trouble sorting through all of that, Badichi's experts are on hand to offer up some assistance.
