- BUYING GUIDE -

To help with our guide is a description of our general customer base:

- Depending on our three locations, ages range from mid 20's to late 40's.
- Men & women looking for deals without sacrificing quality.
- Contemporary but classic styles, with a slight edge.
- More fitted and tailored looks for men.
- Neutral and monochromatic colors work the best.
- Thicker fabric, longer sleeves, and layering pieces better suit the weather.
