Fashion in Fort Greene

October 10, 2007

Stuart & Wright on Lafayette has a virtual monopoly on media exposure for clothing boutiques in Fort Greene as of late.  But the shops featured below illustrate that the sartorial scene in the neighborhood is in reality far from a one-boutique show:

Addy & Ferro

Addy & Ferro, located at 672 Fulton Street, between South Elliot and South Portland, sells both emerging and contemporary designers for men and women, as well as vintage items in the back.  I got a great Plenty by Tracy Reese sweater here last year.  It’s not quite as pricey as Stuart & Wright, but it comes close.  They always seem to have great sale items, and a good selection of designer jeans.

Cloth

Perched on the edge of Fort Greene at 139 Fort Greene Place, Cloth sells mid-range women’s clothing and accessories.  Some lines available here are known to be environmentally friendly.  Don’t let the closed and locked door intimidate you, as the store is actually very welcoming.

Heartbeat

One of Fort Greene’s newest establishments, Heartbeat offers affordable and trendy women’s clothing and accessories.  Unlike the other clothing stores in the neighborhood, residents of all budgets can afford to shop here.  Heartbeat is located at 739 Fulton Street, near South Elliot.

  4. If you are providing info regarding clothing boutiques in Fort Greene why not include all? It seems there are few that are missing. B2 Gear, Moshood and Courtney Washington to name a few.
