Coach Gets Masculine

Is Coach pulling a J. Crew? The leathergoods company opened its first men's-only store on Bleecker Street in New York City today. J. Crew opened a men's only store about a year ago—and the retail model has paid off (well) for the label. No surprise, then, that other companies are following suit. "The men's-only boutique will feature travel and business gear, wallets, sunglasses, watches and jewelry, flip flops, colorful canvas boat shoes, swimwear and nylon and leather jackets. Approximately 30% of the offerings will be exclusive to this store, including graffiti-printed canvas totes and metal embellished leather cuffs." [Racked NY]
