Cruising down Allen St in the LES, The Shop came across a fairly new menswear boutique that has got us all hot and bothered. Teddy Boy, a British term from the 1950's for a tough youth wearing a modified style of Edwardian clothes, has a well edited, styled and handsome store at 164 Allen. Exposed wood floors and beams mixed with vintage furniture, projectors, cameras and sunglasses all set the tone for the beautifully tailored menswear that is all part of the Teddy Boy line. Satin shorts, slim suits, salvaged boots, clean button downs and a great vintage tie collection.
