United Men’s Fashion (UMF) has been located in the same building on Bailey Avenue since 1929. During that time, as fashion trends changed, so did the merchandise at the men’s shop, always staying on top of their game with the latest releases in menswear that range from colorfully urban to current sharp neighborhood trends.
While some of the lines might be a bit splashy for the ultra-conservative types, there’s a lot to be said for dressing in an affordable and outgoing manner. That’s why I decided to feature the hat selection at UMF for any guy (or gal) who is looking to spruce up a jacket or suit. The hats start at $29 and come in a variety of styles from caps to berets to Mowbrays. The guys at UMF were kind enough to don three of their favorites for the 2013 BRO Holiday Gift Guide.
While I did not pick up a hat myself, I did score a couple of colorful silk bow ties and pocket squares ($9.95 for a set). When I have more time I’m going to head back and try on a few of the hats.
When shopping at United Men’s Fashion, be sure to take the time to pay a visit to Phở 99 Fast Food restaurant right down the street – 3398 Bailey Avenue (see more). Phở 99 specializes in Japanese and Vietnamese cuisines and has the best Phở around (see Facebook). There are also a couple of great ethnic markets and a seafood purveyor on Bailey that add to the flavor of the neighborhood.
