Shop Gotham launches first NYC Mens Shopping Tour

January 25th, 2011

For the past ten years, female visitors to NYC have come to rely on Shop Gotham for insider shopping tours. On Feb. 18th, Shop Gotham adds a new feather to its proverbially stylish cap with the addition of a Men’s shopping tour to its regularly scheduled roster of programs. Shop Gotham knows that the fashion-savvy male tourist is underserved in the current market and hopes to attract clients of all ages and inclinations who have come to New York in hopes of finding more exciting fashion options than what is being offered back home.  

Commencing on February 18th, the 3-hour Men’s NYC Shopping Tour: Fashion, Home & Art for the Discerning Man, will take guests into the newly-chic Bowery district and then wind through the neighboring ever-fashionable Soho and Nolita, showcasing a well-edited selection of stops frequented by locals ”in the know.” From wallet-friendly contemporary clothing to upscale designer splurges, this eclectic tour offers a full range of possibilities for the discerning, stylish male. Gentleman shoppers will also visit a celebrated art or photo gallery, a men’s grooming emporium and a plush designer home store or two for the ultimate New York City keepsake

What makes this extra special is being led by a New York City stylist. Groups will be kept to a maximum of 8 persons so that all can benefit from his sharp eye and sense of style and nuance. The stylist/guide will assist with selections, aid the indecisive guy and share the latest fashion trends at every turn.

Guests will also enjoy special insider perks, such as exclusive store discounts, the chance to meet a local designer, and occasional showroom or sample sale visits.  As with all Shop Gotham tours, they will get a sense of the history and stories behind these dynamic New York City neighborhoods. 

It’s the perfect tour for men who either love fashion, home design and art or want to learn more about any of these respective categories.  It’s also great for guys looking for something different to do, while actually getting to see the city they are visiting.  

 Tours run Every Friday at 2pm, commencing on February 18, 2011. Introductory prices for February and March.
