What started out as a warehouse for manufacturing Japanese track bike frames seven years ago now includes a lounge, a Michelin-starred restaurant, and—most importantly—a new boutique. Last week, Kinfolk opened the doors to its newest addition, a menswear shop that stocks international brands alongside the debut of its Kinfolk 94 Wythe label.
"When sourcing the menswear available at The Kinfolk Store, I was looking to create a truly unique and international collection that reflects the relationships we've built over the years," said buyer Jey Perie. That collection includes AXS Folk Technology from Los Angeles, Lewis Leathers from London, and Deluxe from Perie's hometown of Tokyo.
There will also be a dedicated "lifestyle section" with literature, magazines, grooming products, and more. Check out the shop between the hours of 12pm through 8pm every day of the week, and be sure to look out for an event space opening at the same address later this year.
