Detroit could certainly use more men's clothing stores. Here's a fine addition.
Caitlin Riney opened George Gregory at 1422 Michigan Ave. in Corktown, reports Robin Runyan of Curbed Detroit.
Riney writes on her shop's site:
"In 2016, I packed up my life in Chicago and moved back to Detroit to fine tune a business plan that laid dormant for many years."
"When you dislike your job enough, find happiness in personal style and miss your family somewhere in the middle you create the momentum and work up enough courage to execute the dream."
"Inspired by the middle names of my father and two brothers, George Gregory is a space with a goal that each time you leave the shop you’re in at least a tiny bit better mood than when you opened the door. A shop offering pieces for a relaxed Sunday, a business casual office or a night out with friends, and everywhere in between-masculine, but with a fresh sense of creativity and play."
Riney was lucky enough to find a cool space in the heart of Corktown, previously occupied by the Greening of Detroit.
