Vintage popups aren't just for VH1 and Netscape Navigator anymore, thanks to BKLYN Dry Goods: a this-weekend-only bazaar of gently used, meticulously curated menswear and accessories dating back to the 1940s, brought into Stag by a pair of fashion industry vets with treasure-hunting lineages (their parents owned antique & consignment shops), just now stepping out of NYC for the first time -- making them officially more well-traveled than Spike Lee
Shirting focuses on classic American brands (L.L. Bean, Polo) from the eras in which they were still fabricated domestically, with emphasis on seldom-found patterns like multicolored woven chambrays or plaid oxfords; most pieces can be dated by the curators' knowledge of minute details like button insignias and logo generations, which sounds painstaking to learn, but is actually more enjoyable than Star Trek: Generations
Outerwear runs the gamut from somewhat formal Scottish wool blazers and textured English riding jackets, to outdoorsy heavy flannels and outershirts (including a deadstock Dee Cee with original price tags), as well as an impressive array of blanket-like grandpa sweaters, marking the first time since the vintage era that anyone's sweated grandpa
They're also boasting a ton of accessories and trinkets: ties, scarves, beanies, decorative rugs, and even dude-centric reading ("Hunting Big Game Trophies"). A highlight's their collab with a Kyoto watchmaker whose details reference BDG's home base in Brooklyn's Navy Yard, like a rope-evoking brass base and face that mimics a porthole, through which you can see lost classmates, assuming it's on the SS Netscape.
