Let the Dredgers Union help you Beat the Heat! This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday only… Take 20% off the entire store… even sale items!
I’ve always been inspired by vintage photographs from Ivy League campuses. Their effortless layering, mixture of prints and textures, and all around cool poise. I used these photos for inspiration for two Dredgers Union “urban collegiate” looks.
The ladies look is a layered, early spring style. Perfect for chilly mornings and sunny afternoons. Start with a good base, like the Shiloh Dress, it has a soft lining and fun skirt. Throw a lightweight flannel tunic on top. Our Dredgers Union Plaid Tunic is the perfect layering piece, and with pockets it’s also incredible practical!
For the guys, I layered some crazy things together to get that easy going, college look. Start with a lightweight short in a fun color, like these RVCA shorts available in the store. Add a long-sleeved shirt, maybe even with a hood. Put a brightly colored plaid over it, this teal Dredgers Union Plaid Woven would work perfectly. Put a loosely tied silk necktie with it, because…why not?
These are the final looks: Casual, and straight-off-campus cool!
With spring fever hitting Cleveland, pedicurists all over the area are sure to be enjoying fully booked schedules getting all those local toesies ready to be unveiled after the not-so-long or not-so-rough winter!
DU is here to help you take that process one step further! We are so excited (ok, maybe Sean isn’t excited, he probably doesn’t even know what a flip flop is) but the girls of DU are excited to be getting in our first ever order of TKEES leather flip flops.
The line is really well made and we are getting in 7 different color choices including selections which will meet your seasonal needs such as metallics and neons in addition to basic licorice. It’s going to be difficult to choose, but I am pretty sure I will at least be getting one gold or bronze and one hot pink or neon yellow. I mean, if you have followed my pinterest account then you are acutely aware of my current obsession with both GOLD and NEON!
They are arriving NEXT WEEK. I don’t mean to wet your whistle for them and not be able to offer instant gratification, but with the nice weather afoot, I wanted to be sure to let you know they were en route!
We’re excited to get our first assortment of Billykirk goods into the DU! Hand made in USA, these quality goods are built to last a lifetime. Here’s an exerpt from a recent article about Billykirk from GQ:
If you ask Chris and Kirk Bray where they’re from, the brothers behind the leather goods and canvas bag label Billykirk will give you a variety of answers. In fact, the fellas were born in Tennessee (and still have family in the Volunteer state), but grew up in Minnesota—meaning that the brothers Bray bring a unique mix of Southern and Midwestern perspectives to their collections (ticking-stripe bags, hand-sewn leather wallets), not to mention their laid-back personalities. After college the older (and more gregarious) brother, Chris, moved to L.A. to be an actor (mostly daytime TV stuff, according to him; the videos have yet to surface on YouTube), with the artsy and more cerebral brother Kirk soon following along.
“It all started with an inch-and-a-quarter-wide watch strap that Kirk and I found in a pawn shop in Santa Monica,” says Chris from his studio in Jersey City. “Kirk would wear it to this coffee-shop job he worked at night, and tons of people would ask him where he got it. Eventually, Kirk came into my office at this real-estate gig I had and we decided we should start making leather watch straps and leather goods.” That was in 1998, and in 1999 Billykirk launched, to great fanfare in the fashion community. Ten years later and the brand is de rigeur for cool shops all over the U.S. and overseas.
