Google “French fashion designers” and you get Chanel, Dior and Givenchy.
Italian? Prada. German? Herr Lagerfeld. Belgian? Raf Simons.
Dutch? You get a picture of a stroopwafel.
What the nation may lack in search engine-optimized fashion types, however, it makes up for with a ferocious sense of aesthetics (see: Koolhaas, Boontje, Mooi, etc) and a national love of thrift.
These two factors together might as well function as the company motto for SuitSupply, newly opened on Maiden Lane.
It’s literally a one-stop-shop for everything you need to look like an upstanding, well-dressed man in this life: coats, khakis, suits and T-shirts that’ll make your Everlane weep.
You can get most of it online, but hit the brick and mortar: you'll get a better, faster experience in store, aside from the fact that clothes tend to fit better when you've actually tried them on.
No muss, no fuss: just solid, well-constructed wardrobe basics at a reasonable price. Get in, get done, get back to being outside.
If that’s not the best-ever summertime shopping plan, we don’t know what is.
