If extremely recent history has taught us anything, it's that New York winters can be brutally cold. With NYC temperatures dropping to record-setting lows, the world's most walkable city can seem a little less walkable. Which is why we recommend a visit to Dave's New York, one of the best places in NYC to get parkas, hats, gloves, base layers and more gear to help you fight the cold weather.
Family-owned and operated for some 50 years, Dave's New York has a treasure trove of tough workwear, outerwear and wardrobe basics from American heritage brands including Levi's, Carhart, Red Wing, Woolrich, The North Face, Schott and Dickies.
