Yep, Brooklyn, it is. Once a one-stop-shop for the poor, the weary, and huddled masses has transformed into the epicenter of what’s new, now, and next. Here we begin with the spotlight on Persons of Interest, a trio of classic shops with special flares.
Take POI Williamsburg. Enjoy a cut and a shave, while imbibing curated Japanese teas from ToKU. The concept tea counter offers an upscale selection so men of distinction can choose and savor based on preferences and current demeanor. Over at POI Fort Greene, savvy sartorialists can peruse the current collection from Brooklyn Tailors. A favorite of the locals, the classic men’s line allows patrons to update their wardrobe with contemporary styles to complement their fresh cuts.
Although short hair is now in vogue, these barbers are well versed in styles that will suit any guy’s request. Although you may know what you want, the men at POI will definitely have a point of view about what might work better, so sit back and take note. Dialogue is key, but you’re working with true pros.
