The 139th running of the greatest 2 minutes in sports happens this Saturday. In these parts, Derby Day is a great excuse for folks to play dress-up - as opposed to your average weekend in Williamsburg, right? Allow us to give the dudes and damsels a few hand-picked recommendations for looking dapper and dandy: 1) Vintage Victorian - Ricky Becker, chief proprietor of market-mainstay the Spooky Boutique has white linen on his mind. In addition to the vintage wedding gowns he's lovingly restored just in time for wedding season, he's brought a gorgeous crop of Victorian gowns that would look equally at home in the Clubhouse as they would in your Bushwick backyard BBQ.
2) For the Dandy- QP & Monty's Ignacio Quiles (pictured above, left) opened up his West Village in 2013 to share some of his sage sartorial advice to the Manhattan set. After stints with A&F in Williamsburg and at Chelsea Market where he dressed and styled some of the hippest dudes (including superfly NYC chef Marcus Samuelsson), Ignacio's set up permanent residence on Perry Street. He's got everything a guy wants and needs for impeccable Sunday style.
3) Tie It Up - The guys behind Everett are tie-guy phenoms. They've been slowly and carefully carving out their niche on the bespoke accessories scene, marrying textures and patterns that are rich and whimsical for their ties, bow ties and pocket squares.
