Today’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Louisiana: Pelican Coast Clothing Company. Located in New Orleans and named after the Pelican State, Pelican Coast Clothing Company opened in 2007. Originally a custom neckwear shop, Pelican Coast has since expanded to offer a full line of men’s and boy’s apparel and accessories, specializing in clothing for a coastal lifestyle. All of the store’s custom designed items are from local artists. Pelican Coast opened a second location in nearby Metairie last year.
New Orleans is one of the most unique cities in the United States. Its famous festivals (most notably Mardi Gras), music (considered the birthplace of jazz), cuisine, and French and Spanish Creole architecture make it a popular tourist destination. New Orleans has several popular nicknames, including NOLA, The Crescent City, and The Big Easy.
