Fashion: Not Just for Women

Fashion: Not Just for Women

Written by Missy Black

A fashionable men's club is forming in Grand Rapids, and if you follow the finger pointing, key players include Jim Murray, general manager of A.K. Rikk's and Stylist Kev Couture, along with a slew of other personalities.

"Fashion is everything to me. I love being able to make someone feel good about themselves through fashion. That's my high," Couture said.

And it's not just Couture who's feeling good as a result of fashion. Many men about town are picking up on an oft-overlooked trend.

"Men are starting to take notice. They think, I need a crisp haircut and cologne. It's all in the details — from the watches to the socks," says Ryan Slusarzyk, corporate business travel manager for Amway Hotel Corporation.

The holiday season is upon us, but while many of us are enjoying our Thanksgiving days off by sleeping in and relaxing, there are some that brave the cold weather and dark skies among long lines and anxious attitudes in hopes of getting their hands on the best deals of the year.

If you're one of those brave Black Friday shoppers, we would like hear from you. Please send us you photos along with your name, location, and a brief comment about your experience to MyTown@wzzm13.com for our My Town Black Friday photo gallery to be published early next week.

Until then, good luck and safe shopping!!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

As long as there are thieves and fires, people will need safes and since 1926, West Michigan businesses and residents have relied on Hoogerhyde Safe & Lock to provide safekeeping for their valuables. Owner, Tom Ziemer, did replace the original building and added a large showroom five years ago, but the company has remained at the same Westside location for the past 85 years.

While the location has not changed, the type and variety of safes and the comprehensive locksmith services the company provides has changed dramatically. They offer everything from gun safes and cabinets, wall and floor safes, and built-in vault doors to unique antique safes.  Since they provide complete commercial, residential and automotive locksmith services, Hoogerhyde Safe & Lock remains well-versed on the security needs of businesses and residents alike.
