Mickey Cohen's Pop-Up Haberdashery at Chelsea Market (Dec. 2 -4)
In conjunction with the premiere this week of TNT's new 1940s noire Mob City, Ignacio Quiles and Pamela Moore of QP & Monty will be curating/managing Mickey's Haberdashery at the Chelsea Market from December 2-4.
The show features characters based on real 1940s racketeers like Benjamin Siegel and Mickey Cohen who, in addition to his illicit activities, had such a fondness for clothes that he owned a haberdashery on Sunset Boulevard. The pop-up shop is a nod to Cohen's real-life sartorial flair, and will feature vintage period clothing as well as new items from Stetson, Fine & Dandy, and Miller's Oath (among others).
Copies of The Best Dressed Man In The Room will also be available for sale at the haberdashery during the 3-day event.
While I have yet to see the space (I'll get a look at it tomorrow), I understand that it is a sight to see as the teams from Deutsch and Magnetic have really done an amazing job. If you're in Manhattan over the next few days and would like to see the classic men's styles of the 1940s on display, be sure to drop by the Chelsea Market.
