It's All Relative - Kannon's Clothing for Men opens in Cameron Village 



There's no business like family business.  Just ask co-owners Joe Ann, George, Boo and Mary Kathryn Kannon of Kannon's Clothing.  They are the grandchildren of Isaac Kannon, who founded Kannon's Clothing in 1916.  The sisters manage the ladies boutique in Wendell and brother George manages the Kannon's Clothing Cameron Village newly opened men's shop in Raleigh's Cameron Village.


Family Matters: Kannon's is a family business serving the Triangle for over 95 years and knows and understands how to be and remain successful no matter what.  They call this the "Kannon's Experience". It's a simple concept that few master.  "Understanding the needs of the customer to make clothing selection both fun and stress-free", a theme and culture in which they hold each member of their team accountable.  Kannon's Clothing has continued to 'set the standard' in fashion and service bringing sophistication, elegance, and timelessness in clothing and accessories to their customers.


God's Gift to Man: Men are logical beings whose approach to life tends to resemble one big if/then statement.  Example: If you go to them with a problem, then they'll fix it.  If they can't see it or touch it, Kannon's Clothing then it doesn't exist.  So if they're desperately searching for style that's current and timeless, then they should visit Kannon's Clothing in Cameron Village.  There they'll find a style that defines their distinctiveness.


If He Loves to Push Buttons and Boundaries, Then Kannon's will help mix and match textures and patterns in shirts, ties, sweaters, jackets, slack, jeans and more with great lines from Peter Millar, Gitman Bros., Barbour, Bill's Khakis, Hiltl, Southern Tide and so much more.


If He Hoards Clothes, Then he'll especially love the variety of suits by high quality designers such as Jack Victor and Samuelsohn; both family owned manufacturers with third generation family members demanding the same commitment to excellence that's been over 90 years.  Men's suits at Kannon's Clothing - Peter Millar Kannon's are made from luxurious cashmeres, superfine wools from the best mills of Italy and Great Britain, USA in Pima cottons, Italian silks, precious fibers like vicuņa and yangir allowing each garment to maintain its shape, fit and comfort after repeated cleanings (a lost art in the industry but not at Kannon's).


If He wants Made in the USA, Then he'll find plenty at Kannon's such as Bill's Khakis, Gitman Bros. and Hart Schaffner Marx.  All proudly made in the USA!


So... if you know someone who appreciates a  hard working family business that continues to commit to providing the best fashions for any mood, from the morning business meeting, to after work cocktails, or to ballgames and barbecues, then you best tell them to visit Kannon's in Cameron Village.  Brother George along with a well trained sales team will keep them looking their best!


All you women who demand the same standards with your wardrobe, there's Kannon's Clothing in Kannon's Clothing Wendell.  This family business knows how to take care of you and treat you like family.  George's sisters are there to help you feel confident about the clothes you wear.


Sibling rivalry... at its best!

Octoberquest - NC State Fair Opens Thursday, October 11


It's that time of year again ... time for our annual amusement pilgrimage.  It does not matter NC State Fair  how many times you have been to the NC State Fair, there's something about the carnival lights, the food smells, and the fireworks that says fall has arrived ... unless you get e-coli (more on that later).  Started in 1853, the NC State Fair attracts more than 800 thousand visitors during its 11 day run and entertains them with rides, exhibits, music, and food ... a "Bumper Crop of Fun".  Deep-fried Girl Scout cookies?  Why not?  Nothing says you have to stick with turkey legs.  Also new this year is Pig Butt on a Stick (marinated, of course). 


Ticket to Ride:  All your ride favorites are back plus a couple new additions ... The Rock Star and the Genesis.  The Rock Star is a thrill ride shaped like a guitar with lots of bling and speed.  The Genesis is aRock Star Ride  long swing, ferris wheel-type ride that moves fast but won't upset your stomach.  Back this year are all the fan favorites so there should be no disappointment.


Mouth Off:  Our own Scotty McCreery (2011 American Idol winner) headlines two sold out shows at Dorton Arena (Oct 15,16).  However, there are still plenty of entertainers and dates available including Billy Currington, Hot Chelle Rae,  Brian McKnight,  Jake Owen, and more (Concert Listing).  Don't miss the Varsity Vocal Showcase featuring a cappella groups from Duke (Rhythm & Blue), N.C. State (Grains of Time and Ladies in Red), and UNC-Chapel Hill (UNC Clef Hangers and The UNC Loreleis). 


Look But Don't Touch:  After the outbreak of 25 e-coli cases last year, the public is no longer allowed within touching distance of the farm animals competing for prizes in the Jim   Graham Building, the Exposition Center or the Kelley Building. (Note: the Kelley Building is closed to all fairgoers except for opening weekend.)  We will miss seeing the sheep in their nighttime pajamas.  Perhaps next year and remember to wash your hands (often).


Crowd Pleasers:  "If you ever start feeling like you have the goofiest, craziest, most dysfunctional family in the world, all you have to do is go to a state fair. Because five minutes at the fair, you'll be going, 'you know, we're alright. We are dang near royalty'." Jeff Foxworthy.  Perhaps Jeff is right ... The crowd is the greatest attraction.  But having visited many state fairs around the country, we can vouch that the NC State Fair is one of the cleanest, nicest, and most wholesome State Fairs going.  Young and old will enjoy the 11 days of amusements, exhibits, and great food and fireworks.  See you there!

NC State Fair - October 11 - 21: Gates open Thursday (Oct. 11) at 3 pm and at 8 am every other day through Oct. 21. The fun continues each day until midnight.  Midway rides 10am - 11pm (12pm Th - Sat).  Ticket Prices;   Website

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of  The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
