Have you heard about Duke Cannon Supply Co.?
For a clue as to its approach, just know that it bills itself as “America’s Most American Brand” and “The Choice of Champion Barbers.”

As its attitude-heavy homepage states, “Duke Cannon isn’t for everyone. And quite frankly, he prefers it that way.”

If you have — or know — a man of singular style, of old-fashioned values, one with a hint of rugged and an old-school swagger, then you will want to check out our new line of products seemingly designed just for him.

Among the Duke Cannon grooming products we are offering are the Superior Grade ShaveCream, which features aloe vera and shea butter; and the Tactical LipProtectant, created using premium, natural and organic ingredients and featuring SPF 15.

And one guaranteed to elicit a chuckle — the Big Ass Brick of Soap. Available in four scents, this is a full military-grade product modeled after the rough cut “brick” style soap used by GIs during the Korean War.

Wondering how well these no-fuss, no-frills products work? All Duke Cannon products are field tested by active duty U.S. soldiers, so you know they’ve made the grade.

And in appreciation for the men — and women — who have and continue to serve our country, Duke Cannon Supply Co. donates a portion of its proceeds to veterans’ causes.

Come in — or visit — to shop for “America’s Most American Brand".

Sock it to us!

You know when you need a gift that has to make a splash but can’t be serious?
Maybe it’s a pick-me-up for a friend who just got dumped.
Maybe it’s a little birthday extra for someone you simply want to make laugh.
Or perhaps you want to pop something in the mail to someone simply to show you’re thinking about them.
We have the answer: A pair of socks.
Yes, we know. You’re probably thinking, “Did they just say ‘a pair of socks’?”
Yes, we did – and if you have seen the selections from Blue Q, featured in ML by Maria Luisa, then you know we are right.
These fun – FUN! – socks are not only made well – but they will make you smile.
Stop in and take a peek at the options – we carry styles for both women and men – and we bet you’ll pick up a batch, for gifts now and later, maybe even one for yourself.
It’s fun to shake things up a bit!
BUT don’t think our socks are only about fun.
We have several new socks — have you seen just how many socks we carry in both our shops?  — that are also really connecting with our customers. 
Some of our new selections have a decidedly therapeutic angle, but it’s one that doesn’t forego fashion.
For example, check out the Sedona Ultra Light Micro Sock from Goodhew.
This sassy little number features spandex throughout sock, arch support, mesh breather panels, Y-heels and seamless toe closure.
And the Plantar Ease Sock from Sockwell works by firmly supporting to the Plantar Fascia and the Achilles Tendon and applying pressure that encourages blood flow upward to reduce swelling which ultimately minimizes pain and discomfort.
And finally  – in a classic example of ‘last but not least’ – we are featuring a selection of Conscious Step socks. These stylish creations, fashioned out of GOTS organic cotton and manufactured in a Fair Trade manner, not only feature comfort and durability — but really do good. Opt for the style (and cause) you feel strongest about, from hunger to education to water. The company behind these fun socks has teamed up with global nonprofits to make donations (food, books and clean water) for each pair purchased. Take a look – and you’ll likely be considering more than one pair.
So whichever sock catches your eye, there are some real winners here. Who knew socks could be such an easy way to look good, feel good — and do good.
Visit — or stop by our shops — to check it all out.
