Up until this weekend, Cadet was entirely based out of Brooklyn: the menswear brand's flagship is located on N. 6th Street in Williamsburg, and the factory where all of the apparel is produced is in Bushwick. However, the arrival of a new East Village store marks the company's first foray into Manhattan.
The space is located at 305 East 9th Street, and it's considerably smaller than the Brooklyn store. However, the lack of square footage doesn't mean there's any less of a chance that you (or the man you're shopping with) could walk out with an entire new wardrobe. Big hitters from the upcoming spring collection include the Aviator pants—in denim or camo—the seersucker Barracks blazer and matching slim chinos, and the summery short-sleeved Officer shirts.
