Pop-up partisans Northern Grade arrive in Brooklyn this weekend, and they’ve partnered with our friends over at GQ on a sprawling bazaar of American-made menswear goodies. Here’s what to cop.


Your Next Shirt
Straight out of Chicago, Stock Manufacturing peddles shirts ranging from polka dot chambray to crisp oxfords to delightfully patterned popovers (the shirt, not the pastry). Coming soon: their special collab series with your pals here at InsideHook. Stay tuned.

Your New Jeans
Noble Denim takes rugged Cone Mills selvage denim and crafts impeccably fitted jeans out of Ohio and Tennessee factories. They offer a perfect slim straight pair that’ll go with everything. Don’t sleep on their feather-soft tees, either.

Your Go-To Ties & Kicks
Brooklyn Heights’ own Pierrepont Hicks has your neck with character-rich ties (both bow and standard), razor sharp trenches for spring showers, and a pair of mocs in one of the most awesomely bold colorways we’ve seen yet.

And How to Bag It Up
Minnesota’s J.W. Hulme pimps everything from handsome Nubuck iPad sleeves to saddle leather briefcases, all with complimentary monogramming. Our favorite: the slate canvas and leather Weekend Satchel. Like a sexy cross between a duffel bag and a Harvard chalkboard.
