Winter weekends call for new garb, a fresh cut and the best breakfast in the ‘burbs.
Hailey Bieber and Bad Bunny are fans of American Trench.
Jacob Hurwitz and David Neal launched American Trench (americantrench.com) in 2013 with a single outerwear silhouette made in the United States. A decade later, the pair are reimagining the piece that put them on the fashion map with an updated style centered on a more relaxed fit. Main Line tastemakers can shop the new coat and much more at the e-tailer’s first brick-and-mortar store on Lancaster Avenue in Ardmore. Outfitted with artwork and custom wood furnishings from local makers, the shop’s centerpiece is an oversize custom-milled pegboard stocked with American Trench’s best-selling item. “We have our entire collection of men’s, women’s and unisex socks displayed for the first time ever,” says Hurwitz, adding that the accessories are also manufactured in the U.S. “I don’t think you’ll find another brand’s sock collection with this much variety.” The new retail location is also timed with American Trench’s move into footwear. Sanders, Easymoc and Padmore and Barnes are a few of the designers that comprise the thoughtfully considered collection of shoes. Hurwitz says that American Trench serves a need for menswear shopping on the Main Line. “No matter how fast online shipping is, nothing is faster than being able to go to a store for a pair of shoes and a nice shirt for a wedding.”
Spread Bagelry is doubling down on its decade-plus partnership with La Colombe and creating a branded coffee bar at the upcoming Newtown Square location. KNEAD TO KNOW
Bagels are big business in the Philadelphia region. No one knows that better than the team at Spread Bagelry (spreadbagelry.com), known for their woodfired, Montreal-style bagels. Thirteen years and 13 locations later, COO Brooks Tanner and CEO Jamie Schrotberger are readying to debut the most ambitious outpost yet. Set to open in February 2024, the new 3,000-square-foot Spread Bagelry Newtown Square will feature an in-house coffee bar from longtime partners La Colombe. “Spread Bagels has had an exclusive relationship with La Colombe for more than 13 years,” says Schrotberger. “We are working closely with them on the architectural designs that are similar to the La Colombe Fishtown location. And we share in the mission to offer exceptional chef-inspired food and coffee pairings in an atmosphere that is reminiscent of rustic European cafes.” On the food menu, guests can expect Spread favorites like The Standard and Carnegie Reuben, or sandwiches prepared with their new pletzel-style bread.
