Why did you start Pelican Coast?
We felt New Orleans needed a new type of men’s clothing store offering high quality, hand-made clothes for everyday use.

What do you offer that’s different?
A majority of our clothes are made by hand locally, including men’s and boys’ sport shirts, pants, shorts, belts, boxers and bags.

How would you describe your style of clothing?
Crisp and classic with a coastal influence. Our clothes are for men who aren’t afraid of a pop of color or a converstation-starting tie or bowtie.

What are your most popular lines?
People love our sport shirts. The fabric comes from Italy and Portugal. The shirts are hand-cut with double mitered yolks, the only way to really give a shirt flexibility, and the hand-stitching is really high quality.

What you are excited about?
Several lines of men’s casual pants coming this fall that are 100 percent made in New Orleans; your classic khaki-type pant to a five-pocket constructed style made with various twills.

How would you describe this city’s style?
New Orleans men are dynamic dressers. In the span of a weekend, a local man might wear a sport shirt and khaki pants for a causal Friday, fishing wear on Saturday, a suit Sunday morning and then shorts and a T-shirt that afternoon. We can dress him for all of that.
