On a recent trip to DUMBO while taking my daughter to the new carousel on the water, I stumbled upon Modern Anthology, a men’s shop on Jay Street that is now one of my new favorite stores. The owners have done a terrific job creating the perfect mix of brands, both old and new, across a wide selection of categories: clothing, accessories, grooming, footwear, home decor, lighting,  artwork – you name it. I ended up with a vintage red hand-knit fair isle sweater for $65. Getting an item like that in New York, for such a deal, is unheard of. For guys looking to add a few heritage brands to their closet, take a stroll across the Brooklyn Bridge and head north a few blocks to 68 Jay Street.

An eclectic mix of objects for the home:

My favorite bag, from Ernest Alexander. Like Filson but half the weight:

(Manly) framed artwork:

The owner spotted an artist on the subway creating a map sketch of Paris and commissioned him to create this piece:

Similar to an old packaged-goods store, my sweater came wrapped in brown paper with the stores logo stamped on it.
