Concierge.com's insider take:
From the Frank Sinatra and Tom Jones vinyl LPs on the turquoise-painted walls to the frayed Persian rugs scattered on its wooden floor, Bensimon's signature store in Palermo is aimed squarely at the young (and well-heeled) porteño about town. Soft cotton shirts in any number of spots, stripes, and psychedelic swirls sit alongside velvet smoking jackets with sewn-in kaffiyehs, leather-and-fleece sports coats, and cool cotton sweaters designed for the sultry B.A. summer. Bensimon also outfits the staff at some of the city's coolest bars.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 11 am to 8:30 pm, Sundays 2 pm to 8:30 pm.
