Brooklyn, New York Guide to Shopping

Hollander & Lexer

The Boerum Hill menswear boutique that set up shop in spring 2006 on Atlantic Avenue added a much-needed jolt of sartorial panache to the neighborhood. It's an intriguing space, with salvaged lamp fixtures, taxidermy, the odd assortment of antique tools, and brick walls painted over with lacquer. The emphasis is on labels that adhere to solid craftsmanship: Henley shirts from Maine-based Rogues Gallery and denim by Rag & Bone are staples alongside Hollander & Lexer's in-house label of shirts, jackets, and slacks. Dandyish brands such as Paul Smith fill in the gaps, though, as do found objects such as leather belts studded with coins the Moroccan-born owner finds on his foraging trips abroad. It's also something of a lifestyle store, with its Moleskine journals, shaving kits from Acqua Shave, wool blankets, and canvas doctor's bags by Billy Kirk. Across the street is their furniture store, Darr (369 Atlantic Ave.; 718-797-9733; Open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday noon to 6 p.m.
