Craig Reagin Clothiers – Family Tradition

Craig Reagin Clothiers – the newest men’s brick and morter store  recently opened in Lexington, SC.  Jeremy – the owner – was nice enough to reach out and share some information on the idea, the history, and the opening of his store.  Pretty inspiring for a young entrepreneur: As a child, I grew up around the […]

I went to the stores website and was in shock! Did you watch the video of the owner who was wearing the ill fitting jacket that came almost to his knuckles with the tag still on it????? I am all for the small business guy, but before you go on TV and tell people you want to dress them…. Be a proper example of your product.

I love this store. The owner and his family are some of the sweetest people I have ever met. They truly help you while you are shopping and will even have your items professionaly gift wrapped for the holidays! By far my favorite men’s clothing store. Great job Jeremy, keep it up!

I must say that I love to shop in Craig Reagin. The store is beautifully put together and the staff is very helpful. They are just what we needed in downtown Lexington!

What a wonderful store and inspiring story. I can not wait to come in and do my Christmad shopping!

Jack Donnelly Khakis (*Business* Review) + An ACC Championship Giveaway

Here in the South, Khakis are a way of life.  We live in them – wearing them until they are falling apart, then reloading. It’s also fair to say that there are different ‘levels’ or ‘categories’ of Khakis.  For example – there are ‘beaters’ that you throw on with a t-shirt – basically sweat pants. […]

Duck Head – The Rebirth of the Legend

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Duck Head.  I’ve posted about the nostalgia on more than one occasion.  I can remember my mother bringing my brother and me to Uptons before school started so we could load up on Duck Head pants and shorts.  Mine were usually handed down to my brother, but […]

Duck Head khakis get a great patina – washer/dryer wear that looks great, and they get softer with age. Used to find DH all the time here in FL – Stein Mart used to sell them years ago – the polo shirts were great – but haven’t come across any in awhile. Great post!

Hilton - November 25, 2011 - 1:01 PM

I searched for them on the JC Penney’s website, but didn’t find them. Thanks for the post, sir.

Bobby - November 25, 2011 - 5:30 PM

Been looking at these for a couple days now. Pulled the trigger on a pair of Olive Khakis and Athietic Grey Crew Neck Sweatshirt, perfect for lounging around the house or at the lake. Black Friday deal means I get a free DH Cap thrown in!

Casey - November 25, 2011 - 6:41 PM

Love this company. Lots of memories of wear duck head as a kid on Sunday mornings, and NOT hating it. Have not worn it in quite some time, so I am very excited for my order to come in.

Clothes are half priced today, and I also used the promo code ‘clay Travis’ and got another 25% off my order of $100. An absolute steal.

Stephen B - November 27, 2011 - 12:36 PM

There’s a new billboard for Duck Head in Nashville when you cross over Harding Road to West End Ave. Hope this spells a full scale comeback.

Matt - November 28, 2011 - 1:35 AM

I’ve just started getting into buying quality clothes for myself and always love hearing about new quality brands like these to look into.

I own a pair of JD shorts and really enjoy them and I’m looking to invest into a quality pair of khakis as well. I have to ask, how do Duck Head khaki pants compare with Jack Donnelly khaki pants?

Danny Fahey - May 1, 2013 - 4:36 PM

Where can I find DuckHead khakis? I live outside Greenville, SC. Thank you.

I’m really diggin’ the Brewer’s Lantern shirt and was wondering what the sizing is like? I’m in between a medium and large and am not sure whether to order up or down for a good fit.

Matt - November 29, 2011 - 8:24 PM

Tyler, the Brewer’s website says the shirt is printed on a Comfort Colors and from my experience they run large and are preshrunk. So I’d recommend sizing down on this one and generally anything else Comfort Colors.

Good list, Jay. I know you can order I + W jeans online, but if you get the urge to head up to Nashvegas to grab a pair at the store, let me know and I’ll buy you a beer somewhere.

JRS - November 21, 2011 - 8:20 PM

@Cooper – Nashville trip needs to be on the books…maybe in the Spring. I’ll let you know.

Congratulations, Dawgs – See You In The Dome

Great seats, and a great day in Athens yesterday.
