Ethik Clothing Co. Moving Into 160 Orchard Street for ‘Flagship’ Store

Forsaking the edgy frontiers of Essex Street, Ethik Clothing Co. is currently Hell Square bound. At the end of the month, the streetwear brand will close its year-old location at number 23 and reopen at 160 Orchard. Handbills already wheat-pasted around the neighborhood ahead of the move proclaim the new space as a “flagship.”  Said flagship is taking the north store that was formerly occupied by Victor Osborne, the hat-wielding retail casualty from earlier this spring.

Ethik spent just about a year at 23 Essex, preceded by a notorious pop-up stint on Broome Street. It was this venture that found the company in the murky waters of possible copyright infringement. At the time, a photo used in their guerrilla marketing was used without the permission of the photographer.

August 1 is the scheduled opening day. Do you think that 160 Orchard Street is a better location for Ethik Clothing Co.?
