Reunion Clothiers on Main Street has a classic Americana vibe, with bourbon in the shop’s “living room” area and old-school pennants and stuffed stag heads adorning the walls. The owners themselves, Cale Darrell and Frank Welling, have a similar energy. Between their rugged facial hair, stylishly cuffed jeans and joggers and artistic stick-and-poke-style tattoos, the store and the duo are completely in sync. The merchandise spans the 1930s to the 1980s, with a large focus on blue-collar workwear and World War II items, made to be indestructible. Find camo jackets, utility shirts, saddlebags, coveralls and plenty of leather, plus covetable goods like Hudson Bay jackets, classic Pendleton pieces and great leather boots. The guys have also created an entire, dreamy wall of perfectly worn-in vintage Levi’s. Find different sizes and finishes to fit fans of 501s, 512s and other classic styles.
