High-end men’s retailers come to low-key Crosby Street

Stores catering to young men — clothiers, jewelers and even a barbershop Are Finding Homes Along Crosby Street, attracted by its cobblestones and laid-back feel, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The five blocks of Crosby between Houston and Howard streets has added so many shops in the last few months that it is becoming known as the Soho men’s district.

This spring alone, multibrand menswear retailer Carson Street Clothiers and a guideshop for online menswear retailer Bonobos opened at 63 Crosby and 35 Crosby, respectively; in late July, barbershop Fellow Barber set up shop.

Fellow Barber, an 800-square-foot space at 33 Crosby, plans to open a deck on its 600-square-foot garden in September, the newspaper reported. At that same address, a Miami-based men’s jewelry store Miansai is expected to move in by November.

Saturdays Surf NYC, a surf shop and coffee bar at 31 Crosby, kicked off the trend in 2009. Asking rents for the stores were $225 to $250 a square foot, said Beth Rosen of RFK.

“Crosby Street retains that quirky authenticity of A Cobblestone Street that some other SoHo streets have lost,” said Aria Development Group founder Joshua Benaim told the newspaper. “Each store has a little bit of individuality. This is part of the dynamism of New York.”

Aria bought 33 Crosby and 35 Crosby for a total of $13.6 million in May 2012, the report said. [WSJ]Mark Maurer
