Randy Brewer of Convert
Earlier this month, T&P attended the opening party for the Convert Shoe Store on Fourth Street in Berkeley. It was there where we met the owner, Randy Brewer. Decked out in American made apparel, it is clear that he puts more effort into his fashion choices than simply just what looks good. The shirt and tie are from Gitman, and the pants are AG. Both companies proudly proclaim “Made in the USA” labels.
I zeroed in on that gorgeous wooden watch and Randy told me that it is from WeWood, an Italian company committed to conservation. They promise to plant one tree for every watch purchase. Pretty good looking sustainability! They make some gorgeous watches, I already have my favorite one picked out!
The handsome young host of the party was none other than Randy’s son, Ford. In that suit and impromptu pocket square (I hear a friend made it for him out of a paper napkin), I couldn’t resist taking a picture of the Jr. Trig & Polished gentleman. Thanks for keeping us well-nourished with empanadas and advising us to, “Take a napkin, these things are greasy!”. They were tasty and we are glad we took your advice. And it’s like everytime we’d have a craving for another empanada, there you were. You are the host with the most!
Check out the new Convert Shoe Store on Fourth Street for some great shoes for men (and women–but we are talking about menswear here). I personally love the boots, my favorites being the bottom two. So handsome!
