You’re at an outdoor party. The beer is flowing, the bands are wailing, and the food trucks are... food trucking.
Good times. But would it kill a festival to throw in a navy blazer or two...
Welcome to the Southern Swap Meet, the city’s proud foray into the holy trinity of outdoor soiree-ing: cold beer, food trucks and... clothes, happening Saturday on the Westside.
To be clear, this is basically a big pop-up shop/food and music festival. But as you bob and weave through the random lineup of musical and visual performance acts and dispense your hard-earned Lincolns upon the usual four-wheeled suspects (King of Pops, Good Food Truck)... you’ll also want to keep an eye out for the real reason you came.
Which happens to be a sartorial wonderland manifesting itself in the form of button-downs and blazers from Billy Reid, cap toe boots from Wolverine 1000 Mile, yacht-ready foot candy from Sebago and a glorious bounty of all things Southern gentleman from Oakleaf & Acorn.
And to prepare yourself for this most noble of undertakings, you’ll want to hit Friday night’s pre-party for more Billy Reid and the global launch of Warhorse Workshop, specializing in all things handmade and leathery. There’s also going to be a bunch of beer there.
Handmade leather can only pull so much weight.
