NEW YORK — John Varvatos wants the uptown guy too.
The designer has unveiled a 4,200-square-foot flagship at 765 Madison Avenue between 65th and 66th Streets that is a major leap into the thick of luxury retailing for the brand. The store is not far from the likes of Tom Ford, Hermès and Michael Kors, and within walking distance from Barneys New York.
