All Leather Moving Across the Street to 130 Orchard

Now that’s a ton of coats! Dane Cook would probably have a fecal field day upon seeing this towering pile of leather jackets stacked in the empty storefront at 130 Orchard Street.

The reason for the colorful floor-to-ceiling mess?  All Leather is relocating from across the street at 127 Orchard into this former headquarters of Giuseppe Uomo. For the last couple days, store employees have been busy transferring the goods from one space to another.

Giuseppe Uomo closed almost two years ago, and has pretty much remained dormant ever since. Except, of course, for the random graffiti tag or street art placement.  This latest move is essentially transferring the vendor vacancy. We asked a few of them what would become of the old space, but none knew for sure. Fret not, we’ll keep you posted!
