Ann and I have always loved finding and making great things to share with people – in short, making a connection with everyone. We’ve had this itch since we were young, making mix tapes and organizing parties. Together, we opened a shop on the west side of Atlanta in 2007, and then we kept going. So today, ours is a simple concept: a combination of our own designed-and-produced clothing and our favorite classic, iconic, and hard-to-find pieces, all in a space designed to feel as beautiful, inspiring, and welcoming as possible.

We have four sets of connected men’s and women’s shops: one on the Westside of Atlanta, one in the River Oaks neighborhood of Houston, one in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington DC, one on the Katy Trail in Dallas. It’s full of all of our favorite things: things we make, things we find, things we want to share. And stay tuned — maybe our next shop will be closer to you. We can’t wait.
