At Universal Standard, we believe that shopping should be an enjoyable experience. That's why we want you to think of our NYC showroom as your own personal closet. Located right in the heart of New York's Garment District, a visit to US is the perfect way to spend an afternoon in the city.
During your hour appointment, our stylist will walk you through the entire collection, help you find your perfect fit, and give you tips on what to pair with your favorite items (from the Universal Standard collection and your own closet).
We know that shopping online for apparel can sometimes feel intimidating, because determining your right size and fit can be a challenge. Visiting the showroom allows you to try on any piece in the collection, see exactly how it'll fit, and learn how to combine different items in ways you never even thought of before.
Our showroom is set up to make your shopping experience easy and fun, and allows you to test out your outfits in a real-life setting. A typical appointment with US usually takes about an hour. It starts with Aimee, our stylist, welcoming you at the door, then giving you the grand tour if you've never visited US before.

You can also bring different pairs of shoes to try on with your outfits to see how everything looks with different accessories. If you plan on trying on one of our dresses for an event, we recommend bringing the shoes and accessories you plan on wearing with it to the showroom, so you can see how the whole look comes together.
If you don't know exactly what you're looking for, racks filled with all of our clothes in every size make it easy for you to decide what you want to try on. Sometimes photos just don't do an item justice.
Sometimes it takes holding a cashmere sweater in your hand or feeling the way a dress hugs your body to realize how much you have to have it. You'll even be able to try on pieces that we haven't released on the website yet - just a perk of coming to shop with US.
And, you can make a day of it! Since we're located three blocks from Penn Station, getting to us is a breeze. After you've worked up an appetite trying on our clothes, walk the 15 minutes to Bryant Park, where you'll find a host of great restaurants and cafes.
