Despite how much we blog about gorgeous suits, must-have shoes and premium denim, the truth is that style isn’t just about wearing nice things.
Style is a form of expression—expression of attitude, personality and values.
Purchasing clothing from a local business, like Christopher James Menswear, not only speaks volumes about your want for quality, but of your priority to support small business. Really, it comes down to “wear” and “where.” Meaning, good style just as much about where you shop, as it is what you wear.
This may sound like just a pitch to get you to shop at Christopher James Menswear, but we assure you, it’s not.
There are almost 28 million small businesses in America, and 50% of the working population works in a small business. They are the backbone of America’s economy, and right now, they all have the same pressing need: more customers.
While things are on the up-and-up since the 2008 economic downturn, America’s small businesses still need the support from consumers they once had, explains Chris Lambert, owner of Christopher James Menswear.
Lambert adds the holidays are a great time to show your support for local businesses. “The holidays are a great time to shop locally because it’s not like you’re spending money you wouldn’t otherwise. You’re just spending it more consciously.”
Lambert was recently on WANE TV urging Fort Wayne residents to shop local, and recommending gift ideas for men. Watch the video here.
Yes, we want you to buy Christmas gifts for the men in your life at CJM. But we also want you to shop locally as often as possible, for all your needs.
So, help a small business out. It’s always in style.
