More from Shvitz founder Leslie Hall…

What inspired you to open a “comfortwear” boutique?

Most of the lines we carry [Primp, Grail, Rebel Yell, Juicy Couture] are from LA-based companies. You see them a lot in the tabloids. Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson, and Jessica Simpson wear them when they’re in the airport or in the studio. I was wearing all these lines, but I was having a challenging time finding them in New York City. I’d order them online and have to wait weeks to get them delivered. I realized this was an opportunity to bring a lot of the lines into New York. [Shvitz] is a place where New York girls can come and get sweat suits, tanks, tees and thermals from L.A. Every single parent is coming in here and losing their mind.

What’s your secret for giving the ultimate gift?

We do free monogramming on all of our own logo’d tanks and thermals. People have nicknames, dogs’ names, baby names or husbands’ names monogrammed on them. It looks like something you put a lot of work into, but it’s really very simple.

A caravan is most commonly known as a large group of traders or travelers who strike out on a journey together through hostile territories. In the jungles of New York City, it’s important for consumers to band together and do the same. It’s a dangerous world out there for the uninformed shopper, so sharing as many resources and tricks as one can is a necessity for survival in this city!

East Village Dress Code

For the ultimate mix of old and new, and a little something all its own, head to the East Village. Vintage toys, magazines and clothes of all kinds can be found at Love Saves The Day.
