San Francisco transplants Kumasi Sadiki, Quinn Arneson, and Kahim Smith have been making waves in New York ever since their LES doors opened just over a year ago. Collaborations with artists and designers alike, these boys continue to show us why The Good Company isn't just a store, but a creative space where ideas are taken to the next level. Their latest collaboration is with a cafe down the street, home to the most delicious year-round strawberry lemonade, which they've paired with Hennessy to create the shop's favorite pastime drink: The Lenny (pictured). – Monica Rojas
Visit the shop at 97 Allen.
