Faribault Pop Up

Friday, November 11th, 2011

Faribault Woolen Mill Co. opens a holiday pop up store today at Mall of America (second floor, west side). The company, established in 1865, has enjoyed a whole lot of attention and encouragement since firing up the mills on the banks of the Canon River again earlier this year. Some leftover stock blankets have shown up around town at a couple of shopping events this fall. But the MOA store is the first chance to experience the reinvigorated brand in a store setting. Shop Faribault’s new line of blankets, throws, and scarves in wool and cashmere/wool blends.

A peek at the MOA retail space, before the shelves were stocked:

Scenes from NorthernGRADE

Saturday, September 10th, 2011

All the cool kids (and men in dress shirts and slim shorts) came out for the second annual NorthernGRADE men’s market at Architectural Antiques in Northeast Minneapolis. A few of my favorite finds:

First look at the re-opened Faribault Woolen Mills – selling authentic army blankets. (Super soft and warm!)

Fall 2011 from Pierrepont Hicks, including the new silks (right), featuring the company crest.

Isn’t he a doll? That strapping former NFLer is Gibran Hamdan. He could be sportscasting or coaching, but he’s got a passion for fashion. So he put on a vest and brought his Alial Fital shirts to NorthernGRADE.

Charmed by this brand new Chicago-based company, Buckshot Sonny’s selling high-quality, retro sportsgear. The two mustachioed gentleman behind the brand made their worldwide debut at NorthernGrade, selling packs, trucker caps, t-shirts and gear for guys who may or may not hunt, fish and play ball – but who appreciate the old-school All-American vibe.

And then there was this guy – WCCO’s sharp shopper, Jason DeRusha, trying on Stormy Kromer caps. Perfect for those blustery Man on the Street interviews… | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc. All rights reserved
