A New Kind of Beltway

A Real Manwich

Now that you’ve got a custom-tailored shirt to paint the town red in (see above), you will surely need a custom-tailored belt to complete the dashing picture. Badichi Belts is a customized belt store in Manhattan (for both men and women) that allows you to choose from a variety of colors and textures. The various leathers, from Italy and South America, are handsomely displayed on the store’s walls. You then get to select your own buckle so that the in-house specialist can cut the belt to your desired specifications (like the one below), all done in a matter of minutes. » Badichi Belts, 637 Broadway, 212.533.2107

In the film When Harry Met Sally, Meg Ryan famously moaned over her lunch with Billy Crystal at Katz’s Delicatessen to make a specific sexual point. Guys, now it’s your turn to get excited. A national men’s magazine has voted Katz’s Delicatessen the “manliest sandwich shop” in America, partly because of the Three Meat Platter, which feeds ”three tourists or one regular customer,” and includes pastrami, brisket and corned beef. Go wild! » Katz’s Delicatessen, 205 E. Houston St., 212.254.2246

Well-Groomed Move over, pardner, there’s a new barber in town. Fellow Barber, a barbershop and men’s apothecary in SoHo, is putting a new twist on an old service. Gleaming mahogany floors and Koken chairs create a sleek, modern spin on the traditional tonsorial parlor (far left), but wait—there’s more. In keeping with today’s trend of using personal styling consultants, a grooming guide is on hand to offer advice about products and accessories sold at the shop, which include Dude No. 1 (left), a beard oil fragrance made with hemp seed and jojoba. Your dudette will thank you after that next kiss. » Fellow Barber, 33 Crosby St., 212.929.6014
