Like many men out there, we are becoming more conscious of the impact of what we wear, being mindful to purchase well-made garments that last a long time, whether in our closet or someone else's. While we have created a wonderful program to pass on clothes you no longer wear to a new owner with efficiency and trust (see our Trade Up program), one thing we have struggled with is finding great vintage pieces. Much like the TradeUp program, we felt the best route was to partner with a knowledgeable and trustworthy specialist to help sort through the noise and select those gems. Enter Brian Davis of Wooden Sleepers.  Located in Red Hook, Brooklyn, Wooden Sleepers offers a carefully edited collection of classic American style – select military, outdoor, workwear, and traditional “Ivy” style clothing.


With the understanding that Brian's picks are always outstanding examples of American vintage, our team will regularly make a special selection from Wooden Sleepers' inventory to present on No Man Walks Alone. The Vintage Corner will take the grind out of vintage hunting with the combined taste and trust of No Man Walks Alone and Wooden Sleepers. Every item is a unique piece and cannot, by definition, be restocked.
