So your Levis aren't cutting it anymore? You're drooling over the super-stylish low-riders currently gracing the pages of fashion mags? Henry Lehr is the place for you. Like the surplus stores of your youth, this tiny Nolita shop is stocked wall to wall with folded pairs of jeans. And not just any jeans. We're talking Earl, Frankie B., Seven, Juicy: The au courant styles that populate a downtown princess' dreams.
Just so you know: Henry Lehr is actually one store in three parts. 232 Elizabeth is the jeans shop; next door at 234 Elizabeth is American Colors, Lehr's own rather dull and overpriced line of basic clothing (which includes stuff for men). Further up the street, at 268 Elizabeth, is the Lehr T-shirt shop, the place to pick up that Three Dots or Michael Stars top to go with your brand new Earls.
