Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: They say that clothes make the man, but too often we see gents who don't apply that credo to their footwear. Thankfully, The Clotherie offers up trend-conscious shoe options that don't read too old or young -- just good looking. That's the case with these Donald J. Pliner lace-up suede chukka boots that toe the line between rugged and refined.
Where: The Clotherie at Biltmore Fashion Park
Style It: Bundle up in a Facconable cable-knit cardigan over a Lanvin T-shirt, Acne raw denim, and an Oliver Spencer beanie. Accessorize with Gucci aviators and a Marc by Marc Jacobs canvas messenger bag.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
