Some of the in-demand brands for the younger crowd include Peach State Pride, Southern Marsh, Southern Proper, and Jadelynn Brooke. The store also sells ENcreme, Entro, Articles of Society, Elan, and Llove. And their selection of jeans just seems to keep growing.
“If you haven’t checked out the new tee shirts yet, you really need to,” says Tony. “The quality is just incredible. They’re as good and as soft as the polos now.”
