// BUILDING //
Thanks to everyone who was able to make it out to our opening this weekend. Here is a shot of myself building with the incomparable Ignacio Quiles, the young and talented duo Gents Among Men, and my brother Ali of A Noble Savage. Notice the different interpretations of style and menswear. These men are great inspirations on my personal style and vision.

// OPEN FOR BUSINESS //
Dear Friends and Family,
Over 10 years ago I moved to NYC to start a family and pursue my career as an artist.
5 years ago I told my wife I wanted to quit my day job and pursue my passion.
2 years ago we started talking to people about Leisure Life NYC.
6 months ago we started the buildout of our space at 559 Myrtle Avenue.
So, it is with great pride and pleasure that we would like to invite you to Leisure Life NYC this Saturday, June 22nd, 2013 from 12pm to 9pm. We have worked with the best production houses in NYC to produce the best products made from the finest fabrics and materials. We have also scoured the globe for the finest and most sought after vintage menswear and sportswear.
Our physical space is a direct reflection of the products we produce; classic, with a twist on integrity. We worked with ByKenyan and A Noble Savage to create a space that transports you to a place that is neither completely new nor entirely old. Stop by our space this Saturday to see the best new menswear shop in Brooklyn. And no worries, if you can not make it to Brooklyn, please visit our website. We are working fervently to update our online shop.
We would like to thank all the people who have allowed us to continue dreaming! We are entirely indebted to our friends and family for helping us through this process. It has been a life changing experience but the immortal words of Jimmy Cliff encouraged us and some days propelled us forward. “You must try, try and try, try and try…and you’ll succeed at last!” Leisure Life NYC is the place to find that very rare piece to help you live the life you want!
