A look inside: Gentry, Brooklyn, NYC

If you’re ever looking to spot the absolutely stereotypical hipster in the wild (you know, the type  glossies commission cartoony illustrations of when they’re rolling out another style tribes feature) head to Williamsburg NYC. I’ve never seen so many beards, tattoos, baseball caps, skinny, rolled up jeans, Vans and fixie bikes in one place. Forget east London. I’m not sure you can legally enter Williamsburg, Brooklyn or Bushwick unless you’re wearing a vintage AC/DC T-shirt overprinted with a random neon word like ‘feel’ or ‘believe’. Personally, I love it. It’s foolish and fun and friendly and seemingly oblivious to lazy media goading. Brooklyn also happens to be home to the menswear store Gentry. One of the best shops I’ve ever visited.

As well as stocking an enviable edit of premium swag like Ganryu, Tomorrowland, Yuketen, Engineered Garments and Needles, they also boast up and comers Abasi Rosborough and Death To Tennis, a brand currently without UK distribution. Also, I should point out, my girl and I received the warmest welcome possible from the great guys there – they even snapped us for their Instagram. I copped a couple of pieces which I’ll debut on these pages shortly. Until then, I hope the following snaps provide sufficient encouragement for any passing menswearmen of menswear to check the store out.
