Stay Classy Knoxville


There's a relatively new shop in town that unfortunately I'm just now getting to. Its the understatedly hip men's store, Swagger. 


You've probably whizzed by the Bearden location many a time. It's located at the intersection of Kingston Pike and Lyon's View, just across the street from Fresh Market. Next time you're in the area be sure to stop in for a look-see. If you're on the prowl for some of the immensely popular TOMS Shoes, look no further. Swagger has the largest offering and widest selection in Knoxville. 

While TOMS are fast becoming a mainstay of the popular culture, Swagger also doles out a multitude of sneakers, appealing to a slightly different audience. They have some very hard to find brands, including J-Shoes, Clay and Creative--not to mention customizable Air Force One's, done in-house. Check out their blog for info, including deals and trivia (seriously). 


Following the more urban thread, the owner Jeremy will open a skateboard shop in the downstairs called Menace and Moonshine. Here is a pic of the still very much in progress skate shop, that opens in June. The goal is to offer everything a skater could ever want, and compete with the Knoxville skater standby, Pluto. 


The owner Jeremy is a California educated, Knoxville native, who shares the Wigshop's affection for Knoxville, and is making great strides in bringing forward a different kind of culture to the masses.

I have always wanted to stop at Swagger but did not know it was men's only. Thanks for the post, Robert. I love that building.

Aw, I'm disappointed too to learn it's men's only. I am glad someone made use of that building though.
