The Pop Up Flea 2010 Recap
The Pop Up Flea made its way back to the Lower East Side this weekend for the third installment of hand selected menswear from across North America. Half flea market, half pop-up shop, the Pop Up Flea is the brainchild of Michael Williams proprietor of A Continuous Lean and Randy Goldberg, head honcho at Kempt. The curated selection of brands had an Americana aura, and included but were not limited to Tanner Goods, L.L. Bean Signature, Gant Rugger, Billykirk, Hickoree’s Hard Goods, and J.W. Hulme Co. The brands held nothing back for the once a year menswear convocation, offering special pricing, early releases, and exclusive colorways. In addition to selling their prized wears, brands were offering on the spot bespoken tailoring as well as personal customization. The event stressed the quality and craftsmanship of goods provided and continues through Sunday evening. Stop by and check it if you’re in NYC, and if not, peruse the pics and live vicariously.
