Not your Father’s General Store

not your fathers general store
Tastemaker husband and wife team, Kevin and Bo Carney decided to open a perfectly curated shop for the fashion elite in the heart of LA’s trendy Silver Lake neighborhood and we are a better city because of it. Mohawk General Store has a  brilliant way of meshing luxe brands like Dries Van Noten with vintage garments and modern furnishings (even the fixtures are for sale).  This makes Kevin and Bo retail wizards even JK Rowling wished she had conjured up. The genius of Mohawk General Store is that you may go in looking for a classic pair of APC denim but leave with a bookshelf. Or when looking for a dining room table ending up with the perfect Generic Man Boots  (Kevin is also the Creative Director of the brand).  Vintage stereo equipment and select vinyl are perfectly positioned amongst skin care lines such as Aesop and Santa Maria Novella – nothing like a good beat to get your grooming regime  kick started.  Shoppers come in with focus but get easily distracted with so many wonderful options that it’s hard to leave.  It’s like Bo says “you come for shoes and leave with a side table.”

The recently launched brand goes beyond just cozy fleece joggers, sherpa pullovers, and classic flannel shirts. UpWest also offers a full line of home essentials (including weighted blankets and CBD products) to complement a lifestyle that’s more laidback, more meaningful, and more purposeful. If ever you’ve savored a calm winter weekend, vinyl playing in the background, and a hot cup of coffee in hand, just picture that stylish aesthetic translated into a full line of gear for men and women. The company’s blog is packed with content to this effect, focused on nourishing your mind and body at the same time — and yes, the right clothing can help. If ever you’ve worn something unruly and uncomfortable, you know that the opposite is true, so why not go for comfort and style in equal measure?

Design Your Own Custom PolarFleece Right Down to the Buttons
Custom Polar Fleece Steven John Close-up

Some garments are always hip. A good pair of blue jeans, lace-up leather boots, and a button-down shirt, for example, have looked good on a man for decades, and there's little chance they'll ever lose their cool. The pullover fleece might not have had such total staying power, but the once-popular fleece is back in a big way now, and just maybe it will stick around this time.

Style writ large is also cyclical, as you know, and right now the '90s happen to be back in vogue. So whereas a few short years ago neon yellow accents on an electric blue top would have been not so cool -- now? That's cool. But hey, maybe you weren't into that level of color back when things were smelling like Teen Spirit and you're sure not into it now. No problem, maybe you want something more demure in your garments, something like a blend of subtle grays and slate blues. Or maybe you want to go full-on America with your color palate.
