Feature Friday – Dandy’s

Dandy'sToday’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Texas: Dandy’s, The Gentleman’s Store. Located in heart of downtown Austin, the store opened in 2011. The shop is owned and operated by husband and wife Chris and Wendy Bykowski. Dandy’s is a haberdashery that specializes in 1870’s – 1930’s-inspired men’s clothing and accessories. Dandy’s is arguably one of the most unique men’s stores in America. From its handmade string ties and eight panel caps to its compasses and cigar cases, you won’t find another shop like it. In 2014, Dandy’s won the Best of Austin Award for “Best Way to Suit Your Fancy.”

Austin is the capital of Texas. The city is named after Stephen F. Austin, the “Father of Texas”. Austin has a thriving arts and music scene. The “Live Music Capital of the World” is home to the television concert series Austin City Limits and hosts one of the largest film, music, and interactive festivals in the world, South by Southwest. The people of Austin are known for supporting local businesses – a shopping practice that inspired the slogan “Keep Austin Weird”. (image credit)
