In the world of men's formal footwear, few brands offer worthwhile options for under a handful of hundreds. NYC-based Jack Erwin hopes to change this. With three collections spanning brogues, loafers, wingtips and boots, the one-year-old brand delivers a refined selection of finely crafted (in Spain) shoes for around $200. To build on their direct-to-consumer approach, the formerly web-only brand has this week branched out into brick and mortar for the first time, opening their first storefront in Manhattan's TriBeCa neighborhood.

Designed by young Brooklyn design studio crème, the space functions as more of an exaggerated fitting room than a retail space. Inside the attractive space customers are free to browse all collections and get fitted—and if a purchase is made, the shoes are shipped next day to their home, allowing them to leave bag-free.

Open to the public as of today, 13 November 2014, Jack Erwin's "fitting room" is located at 10 Hubert St in NYC. Of the designs, the Chase Chelsea boots ($210) and Archie penny loafers ($195) are definite highlights, though each expertly made shoe is worth a closer look. Visit Jack Erwin online to see the refined collections in full, and see the slideshow for a closer look inside their first storefront.
