Northern Grade, a traveling American-made menswear market, made a stop in Richmond a couple of weekends ago. We were there with Marcus Wiley -- a good friend, Virginia native, and expert craftsman -- for a live demonstration of the making of our Free Union and Millington belts, among several of Marcus' original designs. Northern Grade brought together brands both local and national, inside of a decommissioned power plant at Haxall Point. We had a great time at the market (bourbon and good company always help). It was an honor to be alongside so many great brands, and to meet the people behind them. The next Northern Grade market will be held in Chicago, October 19-20. *Photo slideshow courtesy of Northern Grade on Instagram.
