Great nyc men's shops of the past - Page 7

post #91 of 98


Yes, I recall the neighborhood being a bit iffy, but what a fun store.  I remember rows and rows of chinos in every conceivable color and fabric weight (poplin, regular, brushed twill, etc) and many, though not all, had forward pleats, including those made by British Khaki.  I really liked that brand.

I knew Phil kronfeld in the late 80's early 90s. He was working out of the showroom on the 14th floor at 85 Fifth Ave. The factory was formally owned by Frank catania then bought by Andrew pollack for his schizophrenic son. System hertling, Julie hertling's brother ran the showroom. I would make shirts for their customers

Does any one remember a store that I think was called the London Shop on Madison
Ave or possibly Lexington around the 1960s-70s? It was a very small haberdasher that specialized in shirts and ties. Its very crowded windows
featured the "Mr B" collar on some shirts. The store's proprietor was short
with a mustache

Also another high-end shirt place further up the Avenue DeFree's ?

Finally, I do not know whether it has been mentioned, Battaglia, on Park
off 57th St 1970s, 80s. High end Italian merchandise. I still have some heavy cotton slacks from them which I wish still fit.

Just checked. Battaglia still has a shop on Rodeo Dr.
