Since opening its first outlet in Williamsburg 17 years ago, Otte has expanded to five locations throughout the city, each with a unique flavor designed to reflect its respective neighborhood. Founder Kay Lee and her crew are always on the lookout for emerging talent, offering shoppers the best in designer ready-to-wear, shoes, jewelry, and accessories. If you’re into denim, be on the lookout for the RE/DONE line, spotted recently on Otte’s blog. Calling the threads “pre-loved,” the vintage Levi’s have been reconstructed into modern fits and styles, with no two pairs being exactly alike.

Hip designer and retailer Steven Alan is offering fall fashion selections to die for, both online and in stores in New York and California. For women, we love the Fresco Jacket, a modern interpretation of the pedestrian fleece. For men, this cozy Highland Parka in buffalo check Melton wool looks perfect for a crisp Halloween stroll. Speaking of Halloween, wouldn’t this knit crown be the cutest for your little prince or princess?

Set in an 1825 townhouse on the site of a former ground-floor tavern, the J. Crew Liquor Store Men’s Shop provides a truly unique backdrop for chinos, polos, and suits alongside LPs and first-edition books. Even the tavern bar is intact, making it a shopping experience like no other. These Wallace & Barnes jeans in raw indigo are the exact wash we’ve been craving for fall. Can’t make it to Tribeca?

New in the newborn section are these adorable denim pull-on pants, while adventure-seeking babies will need these recyclable rubber winter boots. For the older set, this urban ski parka with faux fur trimmed hood is perfect for keeping toasty this winter.
