Guy Style: Taylor Richards & Conger

Ok, guys, you've spoken and we've heard you. Apparently, the ladies aren't the only ones around Charlotte who are looking for fashionable duds and stylish attire. So, we're starting a new Shop Talk topic section entirely for you. (We kind of assume the vast majority of our readers are female, so girls, feel free to use this section for gift ideas... or point your style-impaired guys here for a little direction.)

For this section, Sarah promises to keep her total adoration of John Varvatos and Tom Ford to a minimum and Jenn promises not to point out how ridiculous Ed Hardy designs are in every single entry—just every other one. However, we're going to be honest—all in the name of making Charlotte hotter one Charlotte Shop Talk reader at a time.

So, in honor of our first entry on the subject, we'd like to point you in the direction of Taylor Richards & Conger. While this Phillips Place store isn't cheap, it is known for having some of the best men's fashion in Charlotte—with both European and American collections. It's known best for its suits, but we're actually more in to their casual wear section—jeans, sports shirts, jackets, etc. Look for lines like Diesel, Zegna Sport, and Ernest Sewn.

The real reason we want to point you to TRC though is its staff. We can only offer so much here on the blog and let's face it: most guys need some guidance when it comes to shopping. At TRC, the salesmen are helpful, informative, and have a great eye for what will work for each individual shopper. And seriously, if you're spending the kind of money you definitely will be here, then you want to make sure you've found what's right for you.

Ok, this is a start. Now keep an eye out for our future Guy Style posts. Up next: An unexpected place to find your new favorite cuff links.

This is not the first time I've been recommended to Taylor Richards & Conger. Will definitely check them out once there is some funding for my clothing department!

By mentioning your stance on Ed Hardy (a brand whose premise of paying a premium for a design that is an enlarged iron-on patch from a bubble gum machine I find stupefying) you've given an excellent baseline of expectations for future pieces I look forward to reading.
