Billy Reid’s New Orleans Store

billy reids new orleans store reid

We are never as intimately acquainted with stores as we are at this time of year. Visiting boutique after boutique, you really come to appreciate the worth of a well-designed store; are there seats? Are the fitting rooms comfortable and is the lighting flattering? These are all needs that Billy Reid’s brand new New Orleans store meets- and some.

The store represents something of a homecoming for the Louisiana-born designer. Reid’s design ethos has always been synonymous with his Southern background, with collections that manage to retain an American workwear come Southern dandy vibe so the brand’s latest Magazine Street location makes perfect sense.

Rather than scouting just another store location, Reid went in search of a home. Taking the conventional store layout to a whole new fantasy level, the 2,100 square foot space boasts a fully equipped Viking chef’s kitchen which the brand plan to utilise regularly for secret supper clubs and community events as well as a porch and backyard area for ‘entertaining’ and watching Saints and LSU games. We know, finally our retail fantasy has been realized.

Urges to kick your shoes off and chill aside, what can we expect from the shopping? Well, the store will focus on tailoring, and will feature a special made-to-measure area (appointment only) as well as a section dedicated to the Made in the USA Heirloom line which, for those out of the know, elevates the precision of the modern suit jacket to new highs.

Christmas shopping in Billy Reid anyone? Just don’t forget your slippers…

The 10 best men’s workout shirts to help you get fit in 2023

There are multiple things to consider when purchasing new workout apparel. You want to make sure you do your due diligence beforehand. When looking for the optimal workout shirt, functionality often takes precedence over style, for most men. After all, a minimalist cotton t-shirt is ideal, but it won't look (or smell) so great after an hour-long workout, especially if your working out, outdoors. That's why, in the past decade, some of our favorite activewear brands like Lululemon, Vuori, and Under Armour have developed breathable fabrics with moisture-wicking and odor-fighting technology that are now practically must-haves for any exercise gear, especially when it comes to making high-quality shirts.

That being said, not all workout tops are created equal. When it comes to finding the right workout fit, make sure it doesn't feel too tight or baggy around your underarms, your shoulders, or across your chest, i.e., the areas you exercise most. We sifted through some of the most popular brands to select the best workout shirts that are as practical as they are fashionable. Here are our top picks for the best men's workout shirts of 2023.

It turns out that learning to tie your shoes in Kindergarten may not have been the win you and your parents thought it was. Men’s slip-on shoes are all the rage these days. Call them ugly all you want — they’re easy to slip on when you’re in a rush and cozy to boot.

Maybe you’re a resident sneakerhead, or perhaps you simply don’t feel like splurging on a pair of designer men’s slip-on shoes. You might simply not be able to get passed the “ugly shoe” label of Birkenstocks (or the more budget-friendly dupes). Still, the ease of slip-on shoes is a massive perk.
