J. Crew opened its dedicated men's shop on the Upper East Side today and our sister site Racked NY has the scoop. "Encompassing two levels in a former Madison Avenue bank space, the shop looks like it's been there since the building opened. Every surface is encrusted in reclaimed and custom-carved pine planks elevating the humble every-wood into paneling fit for a Vanderbilt. The lighting is soft, the signage is art deco, and the built-in shelving is filled with apothecary bottles and stacks of perfectly folded mismatched shirting." [RNY]
