Where fashion is forward and the bar is open: Men's shop WAREhaus arrives at West Village

Well-dressed Dallas gents now have a new place to shop: WAREhaus softly opened September 22 in West Village. The store, brought to us by Patrick Ware, Erin McBriar and Tony Medley, promises to push fashion boundaries by offering an always-evolving mix of casual wear and tailored suiting “inspired by a combination of Americana mixed with our country's British roots.”

Among the lines exclusive to WAREhous in Dallas are British-made Percival, coming to the States for the first time this fall; Riviera Club, a happy marriage of surfer and prep coming out of Santa Barbara, California; and vintage-inspired but totally contemporary Wolf vs Goat, which incorporates materials hand-constructed by American artisans.

“When shopping, men are demanding better quality and distinctive style,” said partner Patrick Ware in a statement. “WAREhaus will help clients define their sense of style and push their boundaries to be unique. We keep fashion forward and relaxed, not intimidating.”

If the name Patrick Ware sounds familiar, it should: He used to be the men’s buyer and general manager at the gone-but-never-forgotten Lifestyle Fashion Terminal (LFT) in Victory Park, where fashion was always forward. McBriar was a fellow buyer at LFT.

In addition to cool threads, WAREhaus has a Haus Bar for kicking back and watching the game. Surely “kicking back” is code for imbibing, yes?
