Having modern classic fashion brands like J.W. Hulme Co. and Pierrepont Hicks based in the Twin Cities makes us look good. The two teamed up again to produce the second annual NorthernGRADE men's market today at Architectural Antiques in Northeast Minneapolis. If you wear bow ties, fitted plaid shirts, slim denim and Red Wing boots - generally all at once - or appreciate men in them, this shopping event is worth hitting. There will be live music, food and spirits, and of course, shopping. NorthernGRADE brings together iconic American-made brands new and old, including Red Wing Shoe Co., Duluth Pack, Stormy Kromer and Taylor Stitch. Go to support them. Go for the people watching. Go to get your man out of pleated khakis. And go to celebrate the cool, creative companies that make Minnesota their home - and the others from around the country that come to be associated with this movement. NorthernGRADE, Noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10 at Architectural Antiques, 1330 Quincy St. N.E., Mpls.
