Nepenthes manages to always offer the type of things you didn't realize you needed in your life until you saw that they existed. Items like floral Ground Jackets from Engineered Garments and reversible quilted bombers from Needles might sound outlandish, but the fit and materials are always spot-on. The customer service is very Japanese in nature—everyone is friendly and knowledgeable on the stock, and while they might shadow you as you shop, remember it's because they're there to help, not because they're throwing shade. If you find that their wares a little out of your price range, you can always pick up a Hells Kitchen Music Society T-shirt or an art magazine as a more affordable souvenir instead.
