In what’s becoming a Lower Manhattan staple, the Pop Up Flea saw its fourth incarnation this weekend. Packed to the brim with Americana aesthetes, the collaborative event conceived by Mr. Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean, and Kempt‘s creator Randy Goldberg is one part flea market, one part pop-up shop. Boasting a bevy of brands, among them L.L. Bean, Billykirk, The Hill-Side, Tanner Goods and Oak Street Bootmakers, the Pop Up Flea offers an annual convocation for menswear compatriots. Brands dusted off their vintage wares and presented them alongside new stock to drive home the flea market feel. For those inclined and able to fight through the throngs, custom tailoring and bespoken products were also offered. And it wouldn’t be an Americana celebration without a one-hundred-foot American flag draped across the wall serving as the event’s backdrop. Peruse the pics, and stay tuned to Pop Up Flea for further information regarding next year’s festivities.
