Upton Downtown

By: A. Breslau

Custom fitted men’s belts and hand crafted leather goods aren’t usually things that words “reasonably priced” spring to mind about, but at Upton, a pop up shop located on the Oculus floor of Westfield World Trade Center, that’s exactly what you’ll find. Upton describes their belts as an elevated product living at an honest price.

The brainchild of entrepreneur Justin Kerzner, Upton seeks to marry high quality materials, a polished look, custom fitting with a pricing strategy that’s more every day than break the bank.

On top of it, Upton’s belts are backed up with a guarantee “if anybody ever breaks a stitch, they just send it to us, we’ll fix it and send it back” says Kerzner.  The belts are available in three styles — dress, sport and casual.

These days finding hand stitched,  hand cut and edged, US made belts  that are durable, stylish and fall on the affordable side of things isn’t easy and Upton bringing high fashion for a fair cost is just another reason to do some of your holiday shopping in Lower Manhattan.

Come check something off your holiday gift list for a man in your life and help them keep their pants on in style at the same time.
