Mr Porter provided the perfect opportunity for those in the throes of New York Fashion Week: Men’s to chill out and bro out on Wednesday afternoon. They threw a block party, albeit a fashion-y one. As retail luck would have it, four of Mr Porter’s brands have consecutive storefronts on an enviable tract of Crosby Street — Saturdays NYC, Miansai, Jean Shop and Fellow Barber.
Guests — Kellan Lutz, Brendan Fallis, Johannes Huebl, Alexander Gilkes, Todd Snyder and Nick Wooster among them — wandered through each store, House Beer in hand. Each shop offered different services; inside Miansai, custom leather charm bracelets were being fashioned for guests, next door guys got trims at Fellow Barber. Out back, Speedy Romeo cooked up tasty chicken wings on a grill. “This is like a dude’s playhouse,” one guest remarked.
