Orchard Street has become a mini menswear destination, thanks to brands like Holl, Alexander Olch, and Billykirk. And now the stretch is about to get a new dude-centric shop with the opening of Askan, Bowery Boogie reports.
Set to debut this April, the storefront marks the first brick and mortar space for the "fine men's apparel" label, which started as an online boutique in 2013. Expect linen and tweed blazers in the $300 range, wool slim fit suits for $400, and cashmere blend overcoats for $329—any of which would look right at home with an Alexander Olch tie or a Billykirk man-bag.
