This meticulously organized store is both an art gallery and menswear shop. Owner David Alperin is a friendly neighborhood lifer who frequently changes the designs, collections and artwork in his space, seamlessly timed to the fall and spring seasonal retail turnover. Despite Goose Barnacle's multiple offerings, nothing is cluttered. The store stocks a small selection of indie designers (Dana Lee, Soulland) alongside simple, elegant sneakers from Svensson and wool ball caps from Ebbets Field Flannels—menswear very much geared toward the erudite graphic designer in all of us.
