We've always loved 10 Corso Como in Milan and Collette in Paris—and we've wondered why there's never been this sort of well-edited epicenter of hip for men. Well, it's here: Microzine, in the north London neighborhood of Islington. The far-reaching collection of clothes, accessories, furniture, CDs, and books is so quirky and unique that words like "furniture" (a hand-stitched, leather-upholstered LCD television) don't do it justice. There are also Adidas sneakers, copied from a pair worn in the 1968 Olympics, that cost nearly $400; and a Flos Arco lamp, which looks at first like any other reproduction but is actually of a limited edition with a black marble base ($2,700). Microzine is a bit out of the way—a 15-minute cab ride from Oxford Circus. But you should have to work a little harder to discover extraordinary things. At 66-67 Colebrooke Row; 44-20-7704-6667; www.microzine.co.uk.
