INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS NYC-

This week the legendary Coen Brothers (Fargo, Big Lebowski) set up shop on our street to film segments for their newest movie entitled Inside Llewyn Davis. No one on our side seemed surprised whatsoever when the crew informed us that East 9th street was chosen as the best street in New York to have the look of an authentic 1960’s NYC street.

The entire block was set-dressed and decorated for days to set the tone for the film. Justin Timberlake is in this sea of people somewhere.

And one of the only stores on the block that was featured in the film and required no decoration?

HUG THE BLOCK-

Exciting times ahead as we get ready to launch our most comprehensive product range and campaign since the start of the brand.
This week the talk in the studio was about how no one calls Reason a streetwear brand anymore.

Streetwear roots? Without a doubt. But these days we’re looking past being on the top 50 streetwear brands of all time list, and working on making a deeper impression in this business.

Our goal is and has always been to make you feel good about the way you look without spending a lot of money.

How?

With a staff like Carly, Adeoye, and Nick, who will help you put together an outfit in our store that’ll make you look like a million bucks without breaking the bank.

With products that have the look, feel, fit, and appeal of a high end brand and a price point that can compete with the Gap or Uniqlo. THIS R-Press shawl sweatshirt for example, which is currently on sale for $32.50 (CLICK HERE to view it online). Rag and Bone has a similar style in store currently priced at $235.00

With unique product offerings, both online and in store. Vintage pieces that make an outfit stand out, and a place to shop where you can find truly one of a kind items.

Or design them yourselves to your personal tastes. Like our new custom varsity jacket design service where you can work with one of our team members to create your own personalized Alma Mater Varsity Jacket. We will design patches and embroideries to your specifications letting you choose the fonts, colors, locations, sizes, and just about anything else you could imagine to build the jacket of your dreams and then ship it to you for free. Pretty neat, right?

And that’s not all. In-store (and online soon) we also offer accessories, ties, bow ties, lighters, suspenders, scarves, bags, taxidermy alligator heads, and way more. This vintage deadstock Newport lighter for example which only lasted for a day before it was sold.
