In early November we were lucky enough to have Billy Moore and Ashley James stop by the shop for an event. A one day event turned into three days. Billy brought with him his most colorful collection to date, along with some one -of- a- kind bags and accessories. Ashley has perfected her fits and there are quite a few guys in Des Moines enjoying their first pair of Ruell and Ray. I have a pair of Spence Slim in Natural that I haven’t taken off for 3 weeks, getting just the right amount of dirty for an off white Jean, and breaking in nicely.
Billy Moore and Ashley James are coming back to Badowers with their version of a traveling road show. We are very fortunate to have Billy out of his workshop in Tennessee and making belts in the store. Ashley has been working with some new fabrics and fits. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to meet one of the most interesting guys in menswear. (ladies he makes belts for you too)
