A visit to Wooden Sleepers, Red Hook, Brooklyn, NYC

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Wooden Sleepers, a vintage menswear store in Red Hook and chatting with its owner, Brian Davis. If you have fifteen minutes, watch the video below for a cornucopia of vintage denim, leather, canvas and more, and for some serious geeking out.
