Brewing into Fall style

Handcrafted beer & coffee, inspired by art and informed by science. That's the formula behind Hyde Brewing & The Suffolk Punch. The newest additions to Charlotte's ever growing craft beer and food scene landing a great spot right on the LYNX light rail on the edge of South End. These couldn't have come at a more perfect time of the year than right when the temps start to cool off in the evenings into the mornings, making it a perfect spot to grab one of their Nitro grass fed milk latte's on tap while surfing the web or grabbing a delicious pint of your favorite brew while chatting it up with friends over great dishes under the stars. The aesthetic is pleasantly different from your typical raw wood and steel breweries that decorate the city. Succulents and air plants hang, drape and inlay every spot of this place, that reminds you no detail was left out in the design process of the space.

10.Deep X Rothco

Not all collaborations between brands are a win win, however, the most recent collab between 10Deep and Rothco knocks the Vintage M-51 Fishtail Parka in a faded Woodland Camo out of the park. Rothco's Vintage M-51 Fishtail Parka is a new twist on a true military classic. The 100% washed cotton creates a vintage look and feel, while maintaining the silhouette of the iconic M-51 army fishtail parka. The jacket features a sturdy brass zipper and snap closure storm front to protect you from the elements. In addition, the parka has two front pockets with flap & snap closures, drawstring hood, and adjustable button cuffs. The liner of the vintage camo parka has been removed making it the perfect coat for spring and fall.


Rebel At Heart


Created by hand with precision craftsmanship, made from blackened 925 Sterling silver and with hand-picked, precious stones: the iconic Rebel At Heart line by Thomas Sabo is characterized by the special feel for masculine design codes. The subtle mix of materials and the detailed signature characterize the unique aesthetics of the collection.

In 1984, entrepreneur Thomas Sabo laid the foundations for a company that was to become the embodiment of high-end silver jewelry within a period of just a few years. Since then, the brand has internationally made a name for itself with hand-finished creations and a constantly-growing watches segment. With around 1,800 employees, more than 300 points-of-sale and a sales and distribution operation that includes more than 75 countries (status: 2016), the THOMAS SABO Group is today one of the leading premium-sector jewelry and watch suppliers. This position is strengthened by the in-house E-Commerce operations as well as long-term relationships with well-known jewelers and business partners throughout the world.

MAHI Leather think's consumers get a raw deal from high street stores and expensive designer brands. That's because numerous middlemen along the way inflate prices while contributing very little to the end product. This means higher prices for you, less money for the craftsmen, and ultimately, poor value for money. MAHI's mission is to connect consumers with craftsmen, offer unmatched value, and hopefully do some good along way. $1.50 From every MAHI is donated to Clean Water Causes. MAHI Leather takes its name from the Mahi River in India.  For many this is a sacred river and in a country where 103 million people lack safe water its significance is more than symbolic; that’s why MAHI Leather donates $1.50 from the sale of each bag to FRANK Water, a UK based charity which has helped over 300,000 people gain access to clean water since 2005.

Go for iconic skate with classic Vans® sneakers, or pull together your look with high-top shoes, slip-ons and more.

And with Vans, you never have to sacrifice comfort for style. This footwear features die-cut EVA midsoles for impact protection and comfort. Padded tongues and collars minimize irritation on the foot. A waffle-grip outsole maintains traction and grip, especially for skaters looking to maintain their edge.

Golden Coast Authentic

On March 16, 1966, at 704 East Broadway in Anaheim, California, brothers Paul Van Doren and James Van Doren, Gordon C Lee, and Serge D'Elia opened the first Vans store under the name The Van Doren Rubber Company. The business manufactured shoes and sold them directly to the public. On that first morning, twelve customers purchased Vans deck shoes, which are now known as "Authentic". The company displayed three styles of shoes, which were priced between US $2.49 and US$4.99, but on the opening day, the company had only manufactured display models without any inventory ready to sell—the store rack boxes were actually empty.
The Golden Coast Authentic, the original and now iconic Vans style, features a simple low top, lace-up profile with sturdy canvas uppers, metal eyelets, and signature rubber waffle outsoles.

The Vans company is in its 51st year and has overcome many trials, from filing for bankruptcy protection in 1984 to becoming the first in history as the largest single action sports brand in the world and the first company rooted in skateboarding to achieve this level of success with over $1 billion dollars in annual global sales. From skateboards to surfboards to snowboards to slip-ons to mountain boots Vans has staked their claim in more than just fashion and skateboarding. They are part of numerous art campaigns globally to help raise money to keep funding programs for the youth of today to always keep creating. I would say that in more ways than we can count the Vans philosophy of "Off The Wall" can play out well to all those in favor.

The Tie Bar

Smart, stylish ties don't have to cost a fortune.
The Tie Bar knows—they've made them for years.


From my past working in such retailers as Nordstrom and JCREW quality was something I couldn't ignore, however, the one thing I could was some of the price tags. Now don't get me wrong, quality definitely has its price but it shouldn't break your bank every time you want to accessorize your neck or suits.
Since their virtual doors opened in 2004, their neckties have been featured by folks who take ties very seriously: GQ® Magazine , NBC, USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. They've also had the opportunity to partner with some pretty awesome guys: actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his organization "Tie The Knot" - supporting the fight for LGBTQ equality and NBA superstar Dwyane Wade on a special collection of bow ties, neckties and accessories, among others.

Their line has grown to include pocket squares, tie bars, socks, belts and other accessories—all designed by them. They pride themselves on their team's extensive research into global style and fabric trends, guaranteeing the tie you choose will be appropriate for any occasion you find yourself in.

They credit every bit of their success to a simple belief: a well-made tie shouldn't cost a fortune. They offer their premium accessories at wallet-friendly prices. Always.
