Walkin' in High Cotton - Flagship Store Opens Downtown Raleigh


A Southern gentleman's accessories are his bow ties, cummerbunds and pocket squares.   He's walkin' in High Cotton so he won't be forgotten.


High Cotton

High Cotton flagship store will open in downtown Raleigh in one week.  All are invited to attend the Grand Opening party on First Friday, March 1st from 6-9 pm.  The new flagship store is located at 19 W. Hargett Street, one block up from The Raleigh Times.  There will be lots of give-away's and free gifts with your purchases.


High Cotton Ties are washable, 100% Cotton Bow Ties and Cummerbunds hand-made in North Carolina.  This bright, new company supports the revival of North Carolina's textile history by choosing to hand-cut and hand-sew products locally.


High Cotton polo shirts and pocket tees are also grown in North Carolina.  They have a completely in-tact supply chain within the state for comfortable 100% cotton polos and pocket High Cotton Ties tees...  Only 500 miles from dirt to shirt!  They also sell locally made headbands.


Owners Judy and James Hill decided to open the store in downtown Raleigh to pull from all the talent at NCSU and UNC.  They've just hired two employees from the School of Design at State and three interns from UNC and NCSU to be a part of the downtown revitalization, and to give back to their hometown of Raleigh.  They hold themselves to the highest standard, which is why we they use the finest cottons available and have instilled rigorous quality control to their products.  They feel that consumers deserve high quality products, which is why they offer washable products with cost-effectiveness and durability.


High Cotton Whether it's a Steeplechase in Charlottesville, a Cocktail in Chapel Hill, or a Wedding Party in spring, summer, fall or winter, High Cotton Ties have the right bow tie for you.

Put Some Spring in Your Style - Everything's Coming Up Fashion


On the Bright Side, the groundhog said it's almost Spring, and that's good enough for us.  Stock your closet with iridescent bags, patchwork chambray, and rainbow snake print.  Even Punxsutawney Phil couldn't have predicted such a colorful season.  There's shop talk from this past week's NY Fashion Week Spring 2013 that's got the Triangle ready to shine... Try these spring trends on for size. Chambray & Stripes  BB Dakota & Splendid from Uniquities


Done-Up Denim - Everything for a blue jean baby queen.  From white-on-chambray and midnight rinses to every patchwork combo in between, there's no place for slee Anthropologie Pink Lace Dresspy jeans this season.  Photo left:  Chambray & Stripes  BB Dakota & Splendid from Uniquities in North Hills.  


Lace Up - If cotton is the fabric of our lives, lace is the fabric of our dreams. In the  spellbinding tents of New York Fashion Week, used as both accent and the main attraction, lace was spotted all over the runway.  Colorful lace will brighten a spring or summer wardrobe for day or evening wear.  Photo right: Anthropologie's pink laced dress.  


Bermuda Shorts - No longer for frumpy tourists, Bermuda shorts came in chic iterations that ranged from the casual see Rachel Zoe to the dressy Vera Wang.

Digital Prints - In the age of Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook what could be more fitting than digital prints?  Seen on countless runways including Joseph Ribkoff, Tibi, Prabal Gurung, and Monique Lhuillier.   Photo left: Joseph Ribkoff  v-neck dress from CT Weekends in Cameron Village. 


The Jungle Look- Heed calls of the wild wherever they lead. Pop graphics, tropical fruit DVF New Julian Two Gena Chandler motifs, and patterns made for preening add up to a killer look.  Photo right: DVF New Julian Two from Gena Chandler in North Hills.   


Head to Toe Prints - The prints were bold, and so were the ways they were styled, with designers doubling up on the same print and Didier Parakian CT Weekends mixing and matching a variety of prints. Right photo: Didier Parakian  from CT Weekends in Cameron Village. 


Rise and Shine - Doth our eyes deceive us?  Nope.  We're just basking in the dreamy haze of iridescent shoes, bags, shades, and fabrics as far as we can see.  Photo right and below: Claire Rope Wedge by Jack Rogers at Charlotte's.

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.
