Putting on a beautifully designed suit elevates my spirit, extols my sense of self, and helps define as a man to whom details matter.”      - Gal Talese

Carolina grads from the 1970s and 1980s will remember Duck Head khakis, one of the most popular brands on campus for years. Duck Head has made a recent resurrection and its American-made garments will be featured Saturday at the Gentlemen’s Corner on Franklin Street in conjunction with the opening of the Carolina football season.

Duck Head’s vintage Airstream trailer will be parked across from the store at 140 West Franklin upon the store’s opening at 10 a.m. Duck Head personnel and Gentlemen’s Corner co-GMs Dexter Garner and Bennett Gibson will be available throughout the day until the store’s closing at 8 p.m. to help customers find just the right shade, colors and sizes of khakis, shirts, belts and all the other Duck Head items.

Another college football season is upon us, replete with pre-game Bloody Marys, Ryan Switzer punt returns and convivial reunions with old friends and classmates. At The Gentlemen’s Corner on Franklin Street, we’re ready for the 2014 Tar Heel season, and our shop is filled with all the garments and accessories to make this fall a memorable one.

Here are 10 great ideas to kick-off the season in fine fashion at The Gentlemen’s Corner:

 Hot temperatures are still an issue in September, so our Performance polo shirts from the Peter Millar Collegiate Collection are perfect. You’ll stay cool and comfortable in these wicking shirts that have the finest details, the interlocking NC logo and spot-on Carolina blue color.

 As October nears, layering is more important. It’s chilly early in the day and at night but warm at kick-off, so a Peter Millar quarter-zip, V-neck sweater in merino wool in Carolina blue or navy will keep you warm half the day and look great draped around your neck in the midday sun.

 Wolverine Boots crafted with Horween Leather are what the sharp-dressed gentlemen will be wearing this fall, dressing them up with khakis for the Blue Zone or down with jeans for The Tar Pit. (read more…)
