Guys, I Don't Like To Shop, But I Will Shop Here


I’m not much of a shopper, especially when it comes to clothing (send your sarcastic responses about my wardrobe to 812Living@gmail.com). I like what I like and so I treat most of my shopping trips like some sort of well choreographed military operation.


When I do shop, I know exactly what I’m looking for, I know where in the store to find it, I have pre-scouted the checkout registers to know which one is moving the fastest, and I move to my rendezvous point without deviating from the mission. I’m an in-and-out kind of guy.


But when I heard about a new boutique store opening in New Albany that had clothes and “Stuff For Guys”, I decided to give it a shot.


Entering the store I was greeted by a friendly, albeit masked, face and was given a quick overview of the store. I later found out the gentleman who greeted me was Dan Hardesty, the owner. More on that later.


Inside the store there is a wide range of gently used clothes, shoes, and accessories of all seasons and sizes available throughout. The brands were mostly higher quality names like Polo, Ralph Lauren, Vineyard Vines, North Face and the like and the prices were very reasonable.


The store had a great vibe with posters of John Wayne and Muhammad Ali adorning the walls, and a great black and white of Denzel Washington looking over me approvingly as I made my selections.


As I looked through the store’s offerings, Dan was quick to offer guidance or a suggestion on where I might find certain items, but I appreciated that he wasn’t overbearing either, allowing me to go at my own pace.


In conversation with Dan, I found that he has been a part of the Southern Indiana community for over a decade and he has a passion for this shop and serving the guys in our community and that passion is palpable inside the store.


Dan has brought a unique shopping concept to New Albany; Gently used, higher-end clothing at a reasonable price just for guys. I like the fact that I can get quality pre-screened items at a discount without having to dig through a flea market bin to find it.


I picked up a couple of shirts while I was there to add to my wardrobe and found that the atmosphere was such that I didn’t feel like I wanted to crash and dash, but instead I hung out and perused a bit.


From what I experienced, this shop and it’s owner are an asset to our local community. If you’re a guy, or you know one, you will find something you like here.


Go check them out and welcome Eureka Stuff For Guys to The 812.
