A new down-market down-and out store is about to launch in New York.
UpUp is an up-in-your-face, off-the-grid lifestyle apparel company that’s focused on providing a space for men and women to buy vintage leather and accessories from a place of comfort and ease.
Up-Up’s owner, Daniel Littman, says he’s excited about the opportunity to create a new space for the people who use it most.
He says he started the company in October, and it’s now in the process of opening up shop for business.
Up Up, Littmans newest venture, is about creating a place where men and girls can shop for vintage leather, accessories and clothes from around the world.
“The idea behind the shop was to take some of the most expensive and recognizable brands and give them a more contemporary twist,” says Littmayer.
“And so we’re going to bring some of those brands back into a more intimate, everyday environment, and we want to be able to sell them in a way that’s a little more accessible for younger people to purchase the same products.”
The shop will focus on men’s and women’s leather, but Littmann says he wants to expand to a wider range of clothing, accessories, shoes and accessories.
He also says the company’s also planning to add a new retail location for women’s accessories and shoes.
Up up-up, up-store,up,up-store source Wired article A New York City-based leather retailer that’s about to open its doors to the general public, UpUp.com is set to open at the new Woolworth Building, on the corner of Broadway and 8th Avenue, in mid-January.
UpNow, an upstart online retailer, opened its doors last year and opened a store at The New York Times Square in mid January.
And now, it’s about time for UpUp to come to New Yorkers, and UpUp has officially started its business.
“We’re very excited to be opening up in New Yorkers.
We’re the first up-market retailer in New Yorker,” says UpUp co-founder and CEO Daniel Lattimore.
“There are many great retailers around the city, but UpUp offers a whole different experience.
They offer a place to buy your favorite leather products and accessories and to buy shoes and clothes and accessories that you can actually wear.
That’s why it’s the perfect place for a new up and coming company.”
The new UpUp store will have the following features: A huge selection of classic, upmarket brands like Alexander McQueen, Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Levi’s, and Brooks Brothers; a large selection of fashion and beauty brands; and a great selection of men’s leather goods like suede, leather, canvas, leather bags, and leather jackets.
And as UpUp’s website notes, its customers are also allowed to choose from a wide range of leather goods including belts, wallets, wallets with purses, wallets made from leather, leather wallets and wallets with leather belts.

“The idea is to create an environment where people can come in and shop their leather goods and accessories, and people can also come in to shop their shoes and clothing,” saysLattimore, who says he was inspired by the successful online retailer and its “great atmosphere.”
“It’s a really different vibe than what’s been around for years, and that’s where we want it to be.
It’s a place for people to come in, and they can shop their favorite leather goods, and also a place that can sell the most interesting leather goods.”
Lattiman says that UpUp will also offer discounts on items, and there will be a store that will offer the company a place they can go to find other products.
For now, Up Up has only been in the New York area, but they’re hoping to open a shop in other areas as well.
“We’re going into a number of different places and hopefully we’ll be able, once we open, to open other stores in other cities around the country,” says Dwayne Suggs, president of UpUp Inc., an up and comer to the leather world.
“So we’re really excited about it, and I can’t wait to get started.”
UpUp, which has an existing store in the city of New York, is also planning on opening a store in another city, as well, he adds.
“Hopefully by January we’ll have opened a couple more stores, and hopefully by the end of January we can open up a whole new store, so it’s really a great opportunity for us,” says Sugg.
