“STAG blends the best of many unique elements and ideas into an emporium of essentials for leading the life of a modern gentleman. We include style icons like Steve McQueen, James Dean, Keith Richards, and Willie Nelson into that definition.” – STAG website.
We couldn’t have put a description together any better.
Not only have we been huge fans of this Austin-based powerhouse since they came onto the retail scene, but we’ve been proud to have them part of the RP family of stockists since our beginning. 2010 to be exact.
Owners Steve Schuck and Don Weir have created a menswear mecca for discerning clients. These are the guys that call on them for the tried and true brands that they collect but look to them for up-and-coming lines that they are able to discover for the first time and weave into their closets as well.
Our Creative Director, Joe Tornatzky and myself recently took a drive up to Abbot Kinney in Venice and spent some time with the very welcoming staff of Stag’s West Coast flagship location.
Every piece in the store is perfectly placed, the product/brand mix and merchandising is impeccably curated and the store build-out is a visual dream. Even with all that…the store is extremely approachable, inviting and just a comfortable place that exudes the vibe of “come hang out with us and have a beer.” (Which we most definitely did!)
So whether you find yourself in Venice, CA, Austin or Dallas, TX (their newest location), do yourself a favor and pop into Stag. You’ll walk away with a few additions to your wardrobe that you couldn’t live without, a belly full of beer and the memory of a great story or two that you shared with the Stag posse.
