In addition to this weekend’s opening of new guy store WAREhaus, there are more exciting changes afoot at West Village. And speaking of foot, let’s talk shoes. L.Bartlett is expanding to include an in-store shoe boutique, L.Bartlett Shoes. Grand opening is November 28. From the press release:
The new addition will extensively carry lines including: Boutique Nine, Dolce Vita, Jeffery Campbell, Jessica Simpson, Pelle, Report Signature and Sam Edelman, among many others. L.bartlett Shoes will offer Uptown shoppers a neighborhood destination for a wide variety of footwear, ranging from a sexy high heel to a casual loafer, all while avoiding the hassle and headache of the mall.
But that’s not all. Q Custom Clothier is joining forces with Houston-based Rye 51, a “textile distillery.” The newly expanded shop will still include the 3,000+ options of custom shirts and suits that make up Q Custom’s business, but also Rye 51′s casual apparel from brands like Varvatos, Earnest Sewn, and AG denim. Plus, there will be a bar in the middle.
Update: L.Bartlett Shoes’ grand opening has been pushed back a little bit. Grand opening is currently scheduled for November 28; soft opening on November 15. Both subject to change.
