Gents looking to add some laid-back swagger to their wardrobes need to belly up to Rye 51. Opening this month in West Village, the shop dwells next door to the second location of its older brother, Q Custom Clothier, the bespoke haberdashery. (Both stores are owned by siblings Raja and Ravi Ratan.) Rye 51 offers a carefully edited selection of denim, sportswear and accessories suitable for more casual pursuits, with brands ranging from Rag & Bone and Tod Snyder to Varvatos Collection and Bespoken. The rustic-modern interior features exposed brick and industrial-pipe fixtures, but guy’s guys may be too distracted by the complimentary whiskey bar and televisions to notice. Regardless, we think this is just the shot that Dallas needs. 3699 McKinney Ave., Suite 310, 214.780.9888; rye51.com.
