Down by the Bayou

In honour of the still-undefeated New Orleans Saints' absolute pummeling of the New England Patriots earlier tonight in the much-anticipated Monday Night Football showdown, I felt that a little fashion profile of the Big Easy was in order. For that, I present you Rubensteins, the famed men's speciality store in NO that carries high-profile brands like Lacoste, Ralph Lauren, Ermenegildo Zegna, and lesser known brands like Coppley, A. Testoni and Zanella.

Founded in 1924, this boutique has provided generations of New Orleans' finest dressing men with the clothes they need to look good and professional at the same time - because after all, gentlemen should be doing both at the same time anyways. The store also features a plethora of services ranging from shoe repair and tailoring to concierge service and closet cleaning. There is also an apothecary on site that sells ladies' perfumes and men's grooming tips and products. Talk about well-rounded.

To finish up, Rubensteins was "named Style Leader in both 2007 and '08, placed among the top 100 best specialty stores in America and named Best of Class by Esquire magazine for 2008." Not bad at all...

Here are some pictures of their Fall collection from their Facebook fan page:

Plus, you know we had to shout out New Orleans' monster hip-hop export, Lil Wayne. Check him go hard with his posse on their remix of Jim Jones' "We Fly High" here.
