Cool & Classy: Jelly Cafe, Side of Friendship

HIM Clothing Cool & Classy Jelly Cafe Brunch Breakfast Denver Review Handmade Neckties Bow Ties Pocket Squares Tie Bars Lapel Flowers Shoelaces Local Denver Colorado Custom Wedding Groomsmen Gifts Mens Clothing Vintage Inspired Classically Constructed
Aight, aight…. This is a story all about my time spent enjoying brunch at Jelly Cafe in the Cap Hill neighborhood! The Spectacular Max and I rolled up together to meet our grand ol’ pal Huey who just so happens to run the company and thus the blog I am writing for. We three haven't been together for a good minute (I think we were watching football) so the 45 minute wait was passed with a Lebron amount of catching up to do.

HIM Wedding Feature: Mary Beth and Lauren

Thus far into our wedding feature posts, we've mostly talked about how we find our couples through local markets. However, in February of 2015, Chris and I were fortunate enough to be named two of the 10 Craftspeople to Know in Denver in 5280 Magazine, a local publication with a pretty large following. This did wonders for our small business and is something we attribute a large portion of our success too. Our support grew and several people reached out for products, custom orders, and wedding outfitting. Mary Beth and Lauren were two of the people that reached out to us first.

DIY: How to Reattach a Button

You overdid it. It happens to everyone; maybe you had too many pieces of cake, or it could have been that signature move you throw in during the Cupid Shuffle. Or maybe you’re just unlucky and your button-up shirt hates weddings. Whatever caused it, you now find yourself in the bathroom holding a button that is no longer attached to your clothing. Luckily you remember reading a blog post on himclothing.com that taught you how to reattach it. You’re welcome.

It's safe to say that Chris and I have been around our fair share of local markets and met some pretty phenomenal makers. However, even though we've been at this for a couple of years now, there are some veteran craftspeople in Colorado that put us to shame. The cream of the crop? Shari from Leo's Dry Goods.

Ways to Wear May's Bow Ties of the Month

Ways to Wear May's Bow Ties of the Month Outfit 1.1

Well, May is finally here. I don't know about everyone else, but this is about the time of year that I start thinking about summer (even if the Summer Solstice isn't until June 21st). I love the weight and feel of winter clothes, but summer is more my style. Bright reds, lighter fabrics, flashy socks. I feel comfortable wearing loud colors and it puts me in a good mood. This side of me agrees with summer style.

However, for most folks, you can still get some great results out of affordable, basic supplements, without going overboard.

Well, it’s officially May in Denver (and everywhere else), and despite what the weather would have you believe, summer is coming. Usually, this is a time accompanied by sunny skies (nope), flowing beer (maybe), and, best of all, a bevy of great concerts (ehhhh…).

Cool & Classy: Euclid Hall

The bar and restaurant were so aesthetically pleasing and the vibe of this modern pub smoothly whispered, “Sit back, relax and experience something,” and I did. With two big gray doors that blend into the area so perfectly, a welcoming chef bar and high ceilings, I felt all the Denver this place had to offer...

Way's to Wear April's Bow Ties of the Month

HIM Clothing - Ways to Wear April's Bow Ties of the Month - Dew Drops, Gardenia, Sunshine - Handmade Neckties Bow Ties Pocket Squares Tie Bars Lapel Flowers Shoelaces Local Denver Colorado Custom Wedding Groomsmen Gifts Mens Clothing Vintage Inspired Classically Constructed

It's always a bit of a toss up as to whether or not April is officially the start of spring. If you live in Colorado like me, April still means that you have a snowstorm or two left before warm weather really kicks in. Thankfully, when I was putting these outfits together it was a perfect day outside, which prompted me to throw together some more outside friendly outfits.
