Teddy Boy NYC Replaced with Professor Tailor at 164 Allen

“High design, street mentality.” Such was the slogan of Teddy Boy NYC, the rustically dapper men’s boutique that opened at 164 Allen Street in winter of 2009. The shop seemed to weather the storm of an economy in the shitter and hotels rising all around, but closed a short time ago; website is defunct. Three-and-a-half years beats the approximate neighborhood average (roughly two years) for these types of places, though.

The earthy backwoods feel of 164 Allen remains intact given the recent change in tenancy. Indeed, the transition to custom tailor was rather seamless (pun intended). Not too long ago Professor Tailor moved into the joint, offering services for men and women.

Lots of tailors in this corner of the neighborhood now…
