I've heard lots of great things about Read Wall from you AskAndy Forum Members so when I was going to be in Washington D.C. I contacted them; they agreed to host!
It's going to turn out great. Wonderful store, fantastic goods and here's a special - Copper Fox Distillery of Sperryville, Virginia, which has won a myriad of awards, will be joining us -- maybe with a special cocktail! They make a single malt scotch-style (92 points!), a rye (94 points!), and newly released gin that is excellent!
READ WALL is a men's sportswear label founded in 2012, focusing on classic American Ivy-League style, lightly updated for the modern customer.
The brand's mission is to create the impeccable best apparel goods, produced at the best apparel factories in the USA-which also the world to be some of the best in the world.
These strong core values of quality, longevity, and craftsmanship guide each new collection.
American style means a lot to us.
We are inspired by true iconic Americans: JFK, Charles & Ray Eames, Paul Newman, Ernest Hemingway, Teddy Roosevelt, even Steve McQueen, James Dean, or Hunter S. Thompson - these men epitomize American style for us, not just in the way they dressed, but in what they did and how they did it.
At READWALL, we aim to tell a complete story.
We could have simply made good looking clothes and leave it at that. But we took it a step further.
There are a few factories in the United States that are still making clothes the way they should be made, focusing on quality, longevity, and craftsmanship.
Every product that we make is crafted at a factory that has a story, too.
We want to connect you with another level of the American lifestyle.
The brand is sold online at READ WALL.com and at their shop in Georgetown, DC, as well as at luxury retailers in the USA and Japan.
The brand has received notable press including GQ, Esquire, The New York Times, and The Washingtonian, and has been touted as one of GQ's top up and coming men's brands.
The brand founder, Read Wall, is a Washington, DC native and a graduate of St.Albans High School ('05) and Colgate University (B.A. in English Literature '09).
