“It” styles may come and go, but when it comes to boots and bags, beautiful styles endure season after season. Here, a list of where to shop the riding boots, satchels, handbags (and man bags) that will get you through fall (and beyond) in style. [The Feast]

Billy Reid

54 Bond St. | (212) 598-9355The Alabama-born, NYC-bred designer knows a thing about how real gentlemen should dress. Scoop overnights, duffels, and messengers crafted in mixes of canvas and leather, depending on the season.

Rag & Bone

73 E Houston | (212) 777-2218The downtown-loved duo expanded its apparel shop on the corner of Mott to include an adjacent studio full of refined combat boots, heeled booties, and chic options to the usual “everyday” designer messenger bag.


580 Broadway | (212) 343-1725Faux leather or not, the chained and quilted pouches, grown-up-looking attaches, sleek clutches, and just about anything else you’ll find there are sure to turn heads…and not blow your budget.


50 Rockefeller Center | (212) 246-0386Globally inspired boho luxe never looked so good. Like most everything else you’ll find there, Anthro’s bags only get better with age.


1000 Third Ave. | (212) 705-2000Soho store shoppers may have an the ease of in-and-out shopping trips, but when it comes to luxury label accessories, uptown’s where it’s at: Shop a slew of label shop-in-shops, from Coach to Burberry on the store’s ground floor.


444 Madison Ave | (212) 707-6700Whether you’re slinging a Brit label messenger or signature print, main label stunner, the London-based brand has mastered the art of classic looking handbags that never look staid.

Coach Inc

35 E 85th St | (212) 879-9391Thanks to breakout designer and (an in-house creative head) Reed Krakoff, the interlocking “C” bags are only the beginning when it comes to choosing a Coach bag. Their spring/summer limited editions may be covered in color, but the chocolate brown bucket bags and duffel bags are a fall must.


605 Madison Ave | (888) 685-6856The label’s iconic “Alexa” bag (named for fashion “it” girl, model, and MTV host Alexa Chung) appeals as much to well-to-do tweens as working girls with great taste.

Shoe Market

160 N. 6th St. | (718) 388-8495This go-to Brooklyn shoe stop stocks Fryes, Minnetonkas, and Timberlands for boys, girls, women, and men.

Zachary’s Smile

9 Greenwich Ave | (212) 924-0604Arguably the city’s best source for good-condition vintage granny boots — plus the rope belts and 70s-era bags to go with them — at a fair price.
