Shops we love: Oakleaf and Acorn – Select Findings for Men

One of my favorites places to shop when I’m headed down 85 South in Georgia is Oakleaf & Acorn in Brasleton. Purveyor John Rich’s goal is to bring you the finest quality men’s goods. Products that are representative of a man at the point in his life where quality and craftsmanship are priority, sharing the value, enterprise and effort of a dedicated few.

What do I have for my children to remember me by?

That question is what led John to open Oakleaf and Acorn. His goal was to make sure that not only do we live life to fullest, but that the items we used to enhance our lives are ones that add to the richness of our experience and bring enjoyment to those around you.

Be it a shaving kit that follows you through your journeys, a scent that reminds you of a special person or place, the interesting objects that sit on your desk, or the bag that carries you through the day. Things and experiences your loved ones will remember.

I’ve selected three items to highlight from Oakleaf and Acorn to share the great pieces curated by John for his shop.

The jeans are produced by Stovall & Young. They are White Oak Cone raw 12 oz. selvage denim made of natural indigo and 100% cotton from Greensboro, NC. The denim has been Sanforized to reduce shrinkage. The leather trim is hand-crafted in Portland, OR. Belt loops are selvage and copper stitching with a chain stitched hem. Hand sewn with care in San Francisco.

These ties were made exclusivly for Oakleaf and Acorn by Sally Peek in Columbia, South Carolina. John choose “Civil War” fabrics for this limited edition of 18 ties made of 100% cotton with a skinny staight style. My husband owns one that have bull dogs on them and can wear from work to a night out with the boys.

Our final share is the Spice Tin candle from Himalayan Trading Post, produced in Decatur, Georgia. This replica of spice tins, used to store baking soda and spices, has an antiqued distressed finish and comes with hardwood wooden lids. They are filled with fragranced soy wax and burn for 50 hours.
