Worn and Company at 901 Winchester Road offers a mix of apparel for men and women, accessories and furniture.
“It’s almost like a mercantile store, a bit of everything,” said Nick Nardiello, who opened the store May 12. Merchandise includes American-made Howler Brothers shirts, Bailey hats and Velva Sheen T-shirts, plus jeans, new and vintage bar ware, and records.
Nardiello said he hopes to fill a retail void, offering items that are neither department-store bland or bespoke.
“I really felt that there was a lack of this kind of store in Lexington, for men especially,” he said. “It’s the mall or you go to a custom suiting shop. I wanted to bring some casual jeans and everyday wear into the mix.”
He sees his store as one where customers “have a comfortable experience when you walk in, you almost want to hang out there. You don’t feel like it’s a rushed, accelerated shopping experience.”
