Pop Up Flea is happening this weekend and not only has it moved to a much bigger space since we last checked it out in 2011 but it's gone super rugged. Not to say that the 2011 edition didn't have nice shirting, raw denim, and all of that, but this year was at another level all together.
Freshly relocated to Soho, PUF had lots of space for its vendors to display their CPO jackets, vegetable-tanned leather goods and hand-crafted loafers. Manliness was of course the theme, vendors displayed their burliest wares and were offering special markdowns and promotions during the event.
The Gitman Bros. booth was offering bespoke shirting in combination with The Hill-side fabrics. One of the leather goods vendors had a dude custom hammering monograms. Freemans Sporting Club was giving shaves. Man of the World magazine had at least one vintage Mercedes Benz out front. There was more buffalo check, camo, beards, and selvedge denim than you could find in a bar on a Wednesday night in Billyburg. The best part is there's still another day to go! Pics below for those that can't make it in person.
