#GoodmansOnDisplay: First Fall Windows

8 27 2014
The current Goodman's windows are inspired by abstract fitting rooms that morph and move, tumble and turn...with a twist of TV game show set design. I found this bizarre area rug with patterns, lines, shapes and grooves, that hypnotized me. (Think of a medieval castle's floor plan mixed with an ice cream parlor.) The 5th Avenue windows...

#GoodmansOnDisplay: The Handy Man

8 6 2014
I found a box of old BG Mens Store blueprints in a dusty storage room...jackpot! These late summer Goodman's windows celebrate the Handy Man in us all, the weekend warrior and the DIY dude. -- Shane Ruth, Men's Visual Director Shop menswear Designers featured in the windows: DSquared2, 212 339 3327 Rag & Bone, 212 339 3327 Lanvin, 212...

#GoodmansOnDisplay: Illustrations by Ryan McMenamy

6 24 2014
When our Goodman's visual team came across Ryan McMenamy's brilliant illustrations, they thought his "line quality " was superb--it had a modern and retro vibe and his sketches on craft paper felt casual and immediate. Soon after, they paid a visit to the illustrator's downtown studio and McMenamy was asked to help us create a fresh... View More

You know it's a classic when it can be trusted and depended on. Whether it be a Mark Twain novel that can be read over and over again only for you to appreciate it more with each cover-to-cover experience or that Frank Sinatra tune you automatically put on when you need a lift in... View More

On Fifth Avenue: Charles James–Beyond Fashion

5 4 2014
This year, our MET Costume Institute windows on Fifth Avenue will pay tribute to MET Gala honoree Charles James--a master of craft. James is known for applying mathematical precision and architectural vision to his clothing, manipulating the proportions of his garments to create a sculptural effect and uniquely contour a woman's body. In honor of him, we... View More

Photography: Ryan and Trevor Oakes
You never know what you may cross when walking down Fifth Avenue... just a few weeks ago we spotted a curious duo doing (and wearing) even more curious things.  You see, we're quite used to usual window-watching activity — pausing to photograph windows with smart phone, posing before window to be photograph with window...
