A first look at my friend and co-New Antiquarian Ryan Matthew's beautiful new Victorian-inspired men's suit/accessory/denim shop, Against Nature. He picked up these incredible albino peacocks (there's actually a pair) from the same guy who sold me my two fighting swans.
A selection of Ryan's baubles.
Various Ryan Matthew bags and totes, the latter of which are made from old mail bags and vintage braided leather belts.
More Ryan Matthew bags and a peek into the dressing room.
Ready-to-wear suits from the Doyle Mueser line from co-owners Amber Doyle and Jake Mueser. They also offer bespoke services.
A Beauchene baboon skull, disarticulated and mounted by Ryan.
159 Chrystie Street (Between Rivington and Delancey)
