One-stop menswear shop
Word to the wise: Ladies, you’re also in luck. Womenswear is available at the inventively titled ‘2’, the brand’s second outpost, and there’s soon to be a third store with a combination of clothing for men, women and kids.
Located on the leafy, stylish stretch of Cornelis Schuytstraat, this numerically named boutique has all the makings of a hip bachelor pad, filled with worn leather armchairs, dark wooden floors, and trendily tattered walls. In fact it’s so charming, you could be forgiven for wanting to grab yourself a beer and settle down with a book for a few hours.
But you’re here to shop, and that’s a pretty tempting prospect too. Owner Aebe Ferilli goes with his gut when it comes to selecting items for the store, eschewing the commercial potential of garments in favour of personal style choices, resulting in a fantasy wardrobe of brands such as Surface to Air, YMC, Paul Smith, E.T.Q. Amsterdam, as well as luxury loungewear from labels like Crossley.
