Charlotte based menswear brand Ole Mason Jar announces new location in Southend's Design Center of the Carolinas

Men's clothing company OLE MASON JAR, founded in Charlotte in 2013 by two graduates of Appalachian State University (Bradley Rhyne and Filipe Ho), is expanding to the Design Center of the Carolinas. The company, located in Uptown Charlotte for the past seven years, is relocating to the South End area with a new showroom and retail space set to open in the next month.

The new concept, OMJ, will expand upon their current ready wear and custom offerings and will include a dedicated showroom space for fittings and fabric selection, as well as a new retail space with clothing and accessories created by the OMJ design team and complementary items from a curated list of outside designers.

The success of Ho's and Rhyne's three lines, OLE MASON JAR, Mason Custom, and now OMJ, is predicated on the team providing a highly customized, expertly curated, and relationship-oriented experience.

Says co-founder Rhyne, "For seven years we've built our company on values you can't find in fast-fashion. Fluorescent-lit chains encourage you to shop-shop-shop. We want you to pause, have a drink, listen to a record, and work with our team to craft pieces that you'll wear for decades to come."

"We built OLE MASON JAR and Mason Custom on the experience we deliver and the relationships we create with our clients and customers. We are thrilled to announce that our company will expand into a beautiful new flagship retail store and experience in the heart of Southend's Design Center of the Carolinas. The new store, OMJ, is the result of years of dreaming, growing, and listening to how our customers want to shop. We felt there was something missing in Charlotte for a brick and mortar retail store and experience for upscale men's clothing that is also non-intimidating and accessible. There isn't anything like that here (in Charlotte), and so we are creating it! When you shop at OMJ you'll be able to find something for every occasion: workwear, weekend wear, formal wear, and gifts in an inspiring space and a unique environment"

OLE MASON JAR is a men's clothing and lifestyle brand founded and created in Charlotte North Carolina in 2013 and dedicated to making the best shirts, accessories and sport coats right here in the USA. In addition to being online and at a physical store front in Charlotte, OLE MASON JAR goods can also be found in multiple stores across the country. OLE MASON JAR was recently recognized by Garden and Gun as the winner of the 2018 Style Award for their excellence in creating great sport coats.
