Ina 1 Consignment Chelsea

This traditional consignment shop was initially begun by a woman named Ina who set out to open her own business after working in a showroom featuring high-end designers. After many years of collecting a variety of fashionable clothing that she never wore, Ina decided that it was time to begin selling the pieces to others. Initially, she did this out of her apartment. One day, her friends came to her and offered to help her to open her own shop. Ina's store became a reality in 1993 in SoHo. Today, Ina’s son, Milo, is in charge of the family business. Men and women alike will have no trouble finding contemporary, glamorous, avant-garde, business and street-trendy fashions in any of their four locations in Manhattan. Milo continues to follow in his mother's footsteps, offering top-notch designer clothing and accessories.

Rothman's 1 Videos Mens Clothing Founded Before 1930 undefined


Ken Giddon likes to say that he went “from riches to rags” by leaving a career as a bond trader to reopen his grandfather’s men’s clothing store. Harry Rothman used to peddle his wares from a pushcart on Delancey Street in the 1920s before moving into a retail space. “He kind of created the concept of a discount clothing store, ” Ken remarked. Rothman's closed for a time after Harry’s death in 1985, but Ken revived the business a year later in a stunning, 11, 000-square-foot storefront on the corner of 18th Street in Union Square. “I love being on a side street. It gives us the ability to afford a bigger space while watching the movable feast that is New York walk by every day. ” Five years after the shop’s reopening, Ken invited his brother, Jim, to join him. “This is one of the true family businesses in Manhattan. ” The store, which carries both casual and formal attire from top designers, aims to make the shopping experience for men “as efficient and rewarding as possible. ” To this end, Ken and Jim scour the market, travel abroad, and attend numerous trade shows to find the best brands. “We try to provide our customers with that personal, small-town feel in the middle of the city, ” Jim said. Despite Rothman's more modern look and merchandise, the brothers strive to keep some core elements of their grandfather’s business alive, particularly by preserving his humble approach to owning a men’s retail store. As Harry used to say, “It’s not so serious what we do. We just sell pants for a living. ”
