Originally launched in Seattle in the 90s, Rudy's Barbershop is a bona fide hipster institution, offering traditional mens and womens haircuts in retro barbershops across Portland and LA. This summer, the team headed all the way out to the East Coast to open a new location at Ace New York.

So far, the shop has received warm welcomes from places like Racked and New York Magazine, the latter reporting that the shop offers "oft-tattooed stylists who cater to both men and women" and is "consistently well-soundtracked with the likes of the Raveonettes and Rufus Wainwright."

Yup, sounds about right.

Ok, we're a little worried that the Ace Hotel may just be getting a little too cool for school. Wait, what are we talking about? They've always been that way. The only difference now is that you can show off your allegiance to the hip brand by wearing one of their new "Letterman jackets".

Retailing at around $300, the jackets are (surprise!) handcrafted in Washington, by a 73-year-old family-run company, using pure Melton wool from Oregon. Got all that? Oh, and they look pretty good, too.
