Ninety colorful and expressive mannequins awaited my visit with fellow Bay Area Tumblr blogger Brokeandbespoke to J Lawrence Khaki’s of Carmel. Creating stunning visual combinations that people can’t resist, each one is personally designed by owner Jim Ockert to inspire men to explore their own personal style. Drawing from an inventory of 300+ global suppliers, this remarkable store offers a menswear experience that rivals retailers in NYC, SF and LA. Annually listed as one of America’s leading menswear stores by Esquire Magazine’s Big Black Book, Jim’s clientele includes leaders from Silicon Valley Tech, San Francisco corporate, Bay Area hospitality, as well as local, national and international visitors. This diverse audience allows Jim to bring together all new assortments of looks, styles and cuts each season. It’s no wonder Khaki’s of Carmel is referred to as a “sartorial playground”. And, I’ll be returning soon to play some more!
