After studying industrial and fashion design at the University of Cincinnati and The Savannah College of Art and Design, Brad Shaffer moved to Thailand where he began designing a furniture line for David Jones Australia. He spent the next few years traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Australia before returning to the States to work as a graphic designer. "I always felt pressure to decide and focus on a particular type of design. It was during that time, I realized the fact that my past indecisiveness had become a strength," says Shaffer, who began working for American Eagle Outfitters as an Art Director, eventually becoming the Creative Director of Marketing & Brand Concept. At AE, Shaffer did everything from conceptualizing and designing marketing elements to conceiving typography, window displays, and photo shoots. "I developed my skills and learned a lot about the industry." Proving that point, Shaffer jumped ship a year ago to start ACRE Creative with his wife, stylist Leanne Ford. Specializing in design, concept and branding for homes, businesses and brands, they've worked with everyone from Roxy to American Eagle designing retail spaces and displays, and recently had their home (an old one-room 1908 schoolhouse featured in Country Living magazine). Our favorite ACRE project, of course, is the City Gym store, which Shaffer completed in record time. "When Todd called he asked if I could be in New York the following day," recalls Shaffer. "And open the store in 14 days." The rest, as they say is history.
As seen in the New York Times: "On Thursday, 36 boutiques on Elizabeth Street between East Houston and Kenmare Street will stay open until 8 p.m. with deals, like... at the Todd Snyder City Gym, a jersey scarf with purchase of, say, a Todd Snyder & Champion reverse-weave sweatshirt ($175)." See you at the Gym.
Long before Sebastian Kaufmann was a top purveyor of heirloom-quality products, he was busy producing ads and music videos for the likes of TV on the Radio, Chris Cornell, and Bad Religion. But four years in, he grew weary of the media game and sold the company, Draw Pictures, launching Kaufmann Mercantile in the fall of 2009. Originally conceived as a blog, the site quickly became a resource on top-grade materials, featuring interviews with pioneering craftsmen making everything from artisan-level hammers to must-have beeswax leather treatments. "I was always in love with well-made things and my shopping habits were much more focused on buying less, but buying better things — always," says Kaufmann, who was living in Los Angeles when he first started the company, which is now located in New York. "There’s so many of these super stores in LA, from Home Depot to Office Depot to Staples, and I was so annoyed that it was so hard to find nice things whether it was products for the office or for gardening. I saw it as an opportunity because I thought other people must be annoyed to not be able to find nice things." Four years on, KM now carries everything from choice grooming and kitchen gear to his first clothing items, curated from the Todd Snyder + Champion collection. As part of their collaboration, Todd selected a group of Kaufmann-endorsed items to be sold at the City Gym store, and Kaufmann will also be with us at the Pop Up Flea in Soho this weekend with some new must-have items.
Pop Up Flea open December 6-8, 82 Mercer Street (between Spring & Broome).
A few years ago Matthew Ruggieri was on the hunt for higher quality grooming products and couldn't find any outside of hidden nooks in department stores. "I was working in the music industry, but I knew I wanted to get into e-commerce," says Ruggieri. "We saw an opportunity and just started researching products, ingredients, skincare, and trying things." With help from his sister, Madison, Ruggieri launched The Motley out of his loft in downtown Los Angeles. "We had boxes of product everywhere — dresser drawers, the closet, the coffee table," jokes Madison, who left a job in film production to work with her brother on their editorial-driven store that not only sells great products, but does so with useful how-to's and tips. "Our bathrooms quickly became test labs for products we were considering for the store," adds Matthew. "Between the two of us, we've probably tried almost every men's grooming product on the market." We love that breadth of knowledge, and are happy to welcome The Motley to the City Gym store, where the Ruggieri's are curating a special collection for our customers.
On Saturday, November 2nd, we're opening our first collaborative store with Champion at 242 Elizabeth Street, in Nolita. It's going to be called City Gym — after our debut Todd Snyder + Champion collection — and the shop is meant to evoke an old school sporting goods store with athletic-inspired industrial furniture from ABC Carpet & Home, the latest Champion gear, and some jeans and khakis from our signature collection. City Gym will also function as a curio of sorts, stocking my favorite handmade American goods, including bicycles and watches from Detroit's Shinola; throwback ballcaps from Seattle's Ebbets Field, Hoosier bats and Leather Head balls; books by Assouline and Taschen; along with a special assortment of curated goods by Kaufmann Mercantile. We'll also have some of my favorite new and vintage magazines on hand, Stephen Kenn furniture, even bottled juice from Liquiteria. So come on by, get some gear, and stay a while.
