The Pop Up Flea made its way back to New York’s Lower East Side this weekend for the third installment of hand selected menswear from across North America. Half flea market, half pop-up shop, the Pop Up Flea is the brainchild of Michael Williams, proprietor of A Continuous Lean, and Randy Goldberg, head honcho at Get Kempt. The curated selection of brands had a Made in America aura, and included blog-popular companies like Tanner Goods, L.L. Bean Signature, Gant Rugger, Billykirk, Hickoree’s Hard Goods, J.Crew and J.W. Hulme Co. The brands held nothing back for the annual menswear convocation, offering special pricing, early releases, vintage goods and exclusive colorways. In addition to selling their prized wares, exhibitors were offering on-the-spot bespoke tailoring as well as personal customization. The event, like the extremely popular blog, stressed the quality and craftsmanship of goods.
