The perfect find from your father’s closet can be hit or miss, unless your father is Ken Giddon that is.
Originally located on 16th street, Rothmans- the well known men’s retailer has relocated just two blocks north to 18th and Park. Outfitting the local Washington Square alumni since 1986, owner Ken and brother Jim Giddon offered consumers quality discounted suiting and have since evolved alongside their customers.
“This is NOT your fathers closet.” my good friend Syl Tang points out, with brands like Mr. Brown by Duckie Brown, Scotch & Soda, and Will Leather Goods she couldn’t be more accurate. Housing contemporary styles of shirting, denim and even t-shirts, Rothmans is the perfect source to dressing the NY gentleman in style.
Suiting by Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, and Ted Baker can also be found on the basement level of the 11,00sq. foot flagship store.
Please check out some photos of the store and debut event.
