Old Man: MH Frank

Longtime readers of the blog will recognize the name MH Frank. MH Frank is a men's haberdashery in downtown Clemson. This is the store that walked me through my personal sartorial revolution a few years ago. I have many ties, bowties, pocket squares (more than I can remember), and belts from there. But more than that, the guys who work there have been very helpful, especially Jay and Steve, the stalwarts.

They were nice enough to let me come in and take some pictures of their wonderful store. Here are some of them.

The storefront. Right off of the main drag of Clemson (which is about a mile long, if that).

The view from the door. Dress stuff to the left, casual stuff to the right.


Casual shirts. 

Walls and tables of ties.

Belts - neddlepoint, madras, seersucker.

Table of ties. 

Bowties. The one on the far left is four sided - the purple you see, orange, green, and blue. Out of control awesome. 

Dress shirts. Patterns on the table and solids up top. Gitman, Mercer, other great shirts. 

"A true southern accent"

Smathers and Branson needlepoint hats.

Of course, the Southern Proper nook. Bowties, hats, t-shirts.

This is where I have spent most of my time and money over the years. They also have a bowl just to the left. 

Clemson wall. 

This is part of the wall of sportcoats. Just look at all that seersucker. Pink, green, orange, blue. 

Gitman collars. 

I walked out with one of those Smathers and Branson needlepoint hats. Pretty awesome.

If you're ever in Clemson (or anywhere nearby), drive up to MH Frank's and check them out. You can't miss it.
