Westchester men can find stylish jeans, cufflinks, sport coats, and backpacks at this 1,000 sq. ft. haberdashery owned by former currency trader Ken Giddon, grandson of Harry Rothman. This spin-off of the legendary Rothmans store offers “hip clothes for regular guys,” says Giddon. He and his team “out-curate and out-source the competition,” selecting the “best of the best,” from national tradeshows while keeping the local man in mind.

Jessica Mullins opened this apothecary in 2017 after realizing she could help the community heal through natural remedies. Says Mullin: “People will come to me with clinical problems, like sleep deprivation, immune support, digestive issues, and I’ll create products based on what I see a need for.” She sells essential oils, CBD oils, salves, balms, and plant-based body creams. A new Hastings-on-Hudson location opened this year.
