Happy in

the little city By Carol Zinavage


noxville Symphony concertmaster Gabriel Lefkowitz – a native New Englander and seasoned New Yorker for much of his young life – speaks enthusiastically about the many things he likes about Knoxville, his home for the last two years. “The city of Knoxville and its people have a wonderful reverence for nature,” he notes. “There’s the organic food movement, support of local farmers, green initiatives and many beautiful parks around the city. “And there are great restaurants and bars! Knoxville has great food if you know where to look for it, and I love the bar scene downtown.” The energetic twenty-something is a big fan of Knoxville night life, and enjoys dating and socializing regularly. “I can walk to Barley’s, Preservation Pub, or Jig & Reel on any night of the week and know I’m going to have a good time running into familiar faces and listening to live music.” He especially enjoys the latter. “People love their live music in Knoxville, in a variety of genres, which is so encouraging to see. In 99 percent of bars/restaurants in New York City, there’s simply no room to have live musicians.” Lefkowitz – call him “Gabe” – comes by that musical appreciation honestly. His dad is a long-time violinist with the Boston Symphony. His grandfather was a violinist and world-renowned musicologist. His mom has “a wonderful musical ear, but no formal training,” says Gabe. He got his undergraduate degree at Columbia University. “What was truly wonderful about living in New York

City at that time in my life was the feeling of independence,” he remembers. “Anything you could possibly want to do was just a subway ride away. “I have a wonderful memory of studying in the dorm one Tuesday evening, having friends come into my room and ask if I wanted to go see improv comedy in the Village at 10 p.m. and then get chicken and rice from a late night food truck. “Just being able to make that kind of snap decision was so exciting for me as a teenager.” He went on to get his masters degree at Juilliard. Describing the famous music school as “not really highly competitive, but not particularly friendly either,” he concluded that, “the Juilliard experience is simply what you are able to make of it.” And he made a lot of it. Though he was a violin performance major, Gabe also found himself interested in composition classes. He didn’t want the violin to be his sole focus, and he’s “eternally grateful to those who counseled me to get a liberal arts education before going to conservatory.” He’d advise any young musician to do the same. Living in the so-called Greatest City in the World also afforded Gabe many professional opportunities. “Aside from performing at Carnegie, Avery Fischer and other great concert halls, with conductors such as Michael Tilson Thomas, James dePriest and others, I was able to pursue musical interests outside of school.” He interned for Steve Sandberg, composer for the “Dora the Explorer” series, and performed with various bands, including Vampire Weekend.

In fact, he did a stint with them on a little show called “Saturday Night Live.” That opportunity came about through a cellist friend who had been

to school with some of the guys in the band. “It was a real thrill to see the inTo page 7

continued from page 5 ner workings of SNL and be a part of it all!” says Gabe. In 2010, he started New Bards Music, a musician contracting service. “I had a host of musician friends looking to make money outside of school, so I decided to incorporate, market the whole idea online in various places and see how much the business could grow. “We did dozens of weddings and cocktail parties, but two of the most exciting opportunities for me were providing a dozen violinists for the

grand opening of Juicy Couture’s 5th Avenue store, and booking friends for two different nationally televised commercials.” After graduating, Lefkowitz spent a year as a freelance musician. The stress of big city life – including having to ride that crowded subway – was starting to get to him. While playing on a summer “Star Wars in Concert” tour in 2010, he met conductor Lucas Richman and ended up auditioning to be the KSO’s new concertmaster, a position formerly held by UT professor of violin Mark Zelmanovich. He was new to the South, and came to Knoxville for

the first time that fall. “I remember thinking, ‘ahhh, now this is how I was meant to live.’ The fi rst thing I noticed was how lovely downtown Knoxville is, with Krutch Park and Market Square. Then I realized how nice an apartment I could afford for the same amount of money I had been spending in NYC, where I lived in a 700-square-foot two-bedroom in Harlem – with a roommate.” Now an Old City resident with a spacious condo of his own, Gabe says, “The memory of where I live now versus where I lived then never fails to make me smile!” This season, Gabe will make KSO

concertgoers smile, not only on regular symphony concerts, but also with the “Gabriel Lefkowitz and Friends” concertmaster series. These highly popular small concerts, inaugurated last season, take place at downtown venues such as Remedy Coffee and the Knoxville Museum of Art. Tickets, which sell out quickly, can be found at www. or by calling 523-1178. But in the meantime, Gabe’s enjoying the last of the summer, and on any given night he can be found downtown. “I just like to see what’s shakin’,” he grins, as he heads out the door.

Todd Richesin says his interior design business is all about relationship-building with his clients.

‘Real Luxury is Seeking… a CLASSIC’

“What I am all about is more than just doing the design work. I really enjoy what I do and I want to make it enjoyable for my clients. I think working with a professional who is fun to be around makes the process a lot more enjoyable and something to look forward to, rather than being a chore. I want the process to be something my clients genuinely enjoy. It adds tremendous value.” Richesin’s offices and design studio are located at 4514 Old Kingston Pike at its intersection with Lyons View Pike in the totally remodeled and refurbished white triangular-shaped building that formerly housed a service station. The plush but cozy studio is flooded with light and offers spacious work tables, comfortable seating and walls filled floor to ceiling with thousands of samples of colorful fabrics and wallpapers. In that warm and welcoming space, the conceptual design work begins its move toward the finished product. “We do everything from the public areas of a home to the kitchens, bathrooms and closets, as well as home design. We do it all – soup to nuts.” Richesin explains. Richesin explains that the job can be as large as designing the entire interior for a brand new house, or as small as changing window treatments. “Sometimes new window treatments, new upholstery, a new piece of furniture here and there or maybe just some new artwork can

give a totally different look to an existing space.” Richesin travels to the Atlanta market three times a year and to the High Point, N.C. market twice a year to stay on top of the trends. “Knowing what people are doing in the major metropolitan areas allows us to bring our clients the latest in design trends.” His work has not gone unnoticed by other experts in the design field. Richesin has received national recognition for his interior designs. Both Traditional Home and House Beautiful magazines have included him in their choices for the country’s top 20 leading young designers and have featured the homes he has decorated. Richesin says his success is a result of his personal philosophy that his job “is to capture what the client wants, not what I want for the client. “A good designer can save you money in the long run by getting to know you and not letting you make mistakes. Again, it’s all about relationship-building.” Richesin’s retail shop, UPSTAIRS, is a natural extension of Richesin’s design work, making that work accessible to everyone. This total lifestyle store offers fashionable furnishings and home accessories, antiques used in modern ways, and even unique jewelry lines like Val Colbert, Julie Vos, Vincent Peach, Mary James and Kari-Beth. Todd Richesin Interiors is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Photographer brings

full-time gallery to Old City By Betty Bean


t’s Monday morning and photographer/gallery owner Patrice Argant is starting the week with a photo shoot for Kenny Chesney’s new Blue Chair Bay Rum campaign. One might assume that since Chesney is a local guy, and since Argant has lived primarily in Knoxville for the past 4 years, his Knoxville connections must have gotten him the Blue Chair gig. That assumption would be wrong. “I have a studio in Manhattan, which is where I produce most of my commercial work. I also wanted a place where I could have my fi ne art studio,” he said. “That was the original plan.” “I got contacted by Kenny Chesney’s team in February – they wanted a good photographer from New York who was trained in shooting liquor,” he said. “We shot in New York and we shot in Florida. We’re doing a quick image today, and they found out I have a location in the Southeast. Now it’s OK, but would I have gotten this job as a Knoxville photographer? No.” Argant, the owner of 2 Many Pixels Gallery in the Old City, didn’t set out to have a gallery here, but he very quickly saw the need for one. “My plan was to do personal art projects here, but when I was walking down the streets, I realized there was no full-time gallery here. In a typical week in New York, I’d shoot for a few days, then go to photographic shows. Here, I couldn’t do that, so I was very disappointed.” That’s when he decided to start displaying other artists’ photographs – “So I could have beautiful art on my walls.” Be-

fore long, he got to know people at the Knoxville Museum of Art and was asked to start curating exhibits for them. Now, exhibits at 2 Many Pixels are drawing some 500 visitors to First Friday openings. This month’s exhibit is by former Knoxville-based photographer Chad Green. Argant’s Knoxville connection started with Knoxville friends who told him about

great spaces available at affordable prices. He took a look around and found 3,300 light, airy square feet in the Jackson Ateliers building at 130 W. Jackson Avenue. Half of that space is now 2 Many Pixels Gallery; the other half will probably become an apartment. “I was interested in the development of downtown Knoxville and wanted to become a part of that,” he said.

Argant’s story doesn’t begin in New York. He was born, educated and lived in Paris before he emigrated nearly 20 years ago. “That’s Paris, France, not Alabama,” he said, grinning. “Every state has a Paris, doesn’t it?” He grew up dreaming of living in the USA, in part because of his father’s experiences during World War II. “Dad was quite indepen-

dent. He was passing messages to the resistance and he killed a lot of Germans as a kid. He was living in a village with his mother, and when he was only about 6 years old he would put (booby) traps on the road. He was a farm boy and would fi nd vipers and throw bags of them into the Germans’ sidecars, creating a lot of accidents. The Germans would fi re in his direction, but he and his friend would dive into the ditch. Luckily and randomly they didn’t get hit.” Life changed in 1944 when the Americans arrived in the village after landing at Normandy and starting the push toward Paris. “Those G.I.s were feeling loneliness for their own families, and when they came

in, they basically adopted him [Argant’s father]. I have pictures of him in a small American Army uniform that they had made for him. He learned to speak perfect English from all these soldiers from New York and the South and West, in any kind of accent he would want. He learned how to work on Jeeps and GMC trucks of the era. That’s where he learned to become a mechanic. When they left, they wanted to adopt him, bring him back to the U.S. as part of their family. He didn’t go with them. About 10 years ago, on one of my parents’ trips to the US – they come religiously, every year – he was talking about a guy named Langley. I did an Internet search, randomly enough, and I found the guy! But he had died the week before. We talked to his wife. What a reunion that would have been!” Argant’s father got an engineering degree and worked as a Formula 1 mechanic for Mercedes Benz and then for a French airline. He also worked for a short period of time as an engineer for Boeing in Seattle. “As a kid, I had the American dream. That dream is still alive and well over-

seas. Subconsciously, I was like, ‘When I can go, I will.’ ” He started taking pictures when he was 15 – mostly, “Because I was a terrible oil painter.” In college, he majored in business, minored in photography and learned to play classical guitar in conservatory. He worked for the government after graduation, lived in Algeria for several years and the Ivory Coast of Africa for a few months. He took a year off to cross the Sahara. He decided to go chase his American dream when he was 30, and moved to New York, where he got a mixed reception. “I had a career in France, had worked, and had income. I made that step knowing what I would face here. As an immigrant, you are not entirely welcome. Obviously I’m one of the welcome ones because I come from one of the ‘good’ countries.Actually, it was more difficult to establish a career in photography in France because when you’re in France, and you’re French, you’re not exotic. Being ‘exotic’ always makes a difference.”

Bridges Chiropractic showing dramatic results


atients of Dr. Barry Bridges, a chiropractor with offices in West Knoxville, are realizing dramatic improvement with a wide range of issues thanks to the ProAdjuster, a machine that analyzes the echos from a mild, sixpound percussive force on the patient. Dr. Bridges analyzes the patient’s vertebrae via a bar graph, waveform analysis or vertebral resonating frequency through the use of software. Once the adjustment needs are identified, Dr. Bridges uses the ProAdjuster to adjust the problem area(s). With the ProAdjuster, adjustments require less bending, twisting and pressure directly applied to the patient than with other forms of chiropractic. The ProAdjuster utilizes a precise oscillating force with uninterrupted motion which is the same technology used by NASA. It is able to increase the mobility of the spinal segments by reducing or enabling motion in the abnormal areas. In other words, the

ProAdjuster is "unsticking" the joint. Have you ever seen a woodpecker tapping in an oscillating fashion on a tree? It is hard to believe, but you can watch them bore right through the hardest wood. The ProAdjuster taps in much the same way but uses soft tips that are comfortable to the human body and do not create damage. What patients of Dr. Bridges receive from these treatments is a more accurate adjustment tailored to each person’s individual needs. The ProAdjuster System can treat but is not limited to, • Headaches • Restless sleep • Fatigue • Allergies • Mood Swings • Pain • Arthritis Bridges Chiropractic is co-located with 3DLaser Allergy Relief at 101 Sherlake Lane. For additional information call 357-2225.

3D Laser treatment offers

relief for allergy sufferers By Anne Hart


e all know the symptoms – a runny nose, puffy and watery eyes, headache, congestion – sensitivities that affect many of us, because East Tennessee is one of the worst locations in the United States for allergy sufferers.

Pamela Bull, LZR7 Laser practitioner Until very recently, the examinations to determine these sensitivities have been associated with the painful scratch test, allergy shots and countless prescription and over-the-counter medications – and often none of that alleviates the problems, much less eliminates them altogether. All that has now changed with the LZR7 Allergy Relief Laser sessions available only with Pamela Bull, LZR7 Laser practitioner at 3D Laser Allergy Relief located in West Knoxville. 3D Laser Allergy Relief is the only facility of its kind in Knoxville and one of only two in the state of Tennessee. Sessions are quick, painless and, most important, effective. Patient satisfaction rate is an

astounding 88–90%. Here’s what some of Bull’s patients are saying: “After the fourth treatment I was able to eat almonds again and I am eating them several times a week with no problems at all.” “I am able to mow my grass now without sneezing a single time. Before the sessions I would sneeze 15 to 20 times while I was mowing.” Bull says an allergy “is the body’s inappropriate reaction to an otherwise harmless substance. The LZR7 laser treatments balance the nervous system and ultimately eliminate the allergic reaction to various types of allergens.” Many patients may suffer from other physical complications caused by food sensitivities or digestive issues. “Once the body is introduced and balanced to the specific sensitivity, it can deal with it,” Bull says. “The LZR7 Laser actually balances the body and helps move itself to a healthier state, and the LZR7 balancing is completely safe for all ages. Children and their parents really like the fact that the

sessions are painless.” Patients who choose 3D Laser Allergy Relief can expect to have approximately 13 treatments, each being for a different sensitivity, scanning for nearly 100,000 different allergies. 3D Laser Allergy Relief is safe for people of all ages, and no painful needles or drugs are involved. Those wanting relief from the pain and suffering connected to food or seasonal sensitivities may fi nd effective, painless and safe relief by making an appointment with Pamela Bull. She can be reached at 3D Laser Allergy Relief, 101 Sherlake Lane, where the office is co-located with Bridges Chiropractic, or by calling 865208-4384.

ons barefoot comfort. Create an indoor seaside retreat using rattan furniture, Sea Salt (SW 6204) pale aqua walls and a table painted Rapture Blue (SW 6773), both from the Coastal Cool collection. Complete the look with accessories such as

seashells and clear vases that evoke sea glass washed ashore. Pick colors fresh from the garden. Let the colors of your favorite flowers, fruits and vegetables guide your color choices throughout the home. Evoke beautiful pink flower petals with Exuberant Pink (SW 6840) on a bathroom accent wall; paint a desk in a fresh, Frolic (SW 6703) green; or bring out citrus colors in the kitchen with orange Tango (SW 6649). Reference the Color Pizzazz collection for more bold inspiration. Cook up some color excitement. Make your kitchen the ideal gathering place with deliciously warm and inviting colors. Spice it up with rich, saturated tones of Peppery (SW 6615) orange and Gran-

If you are an antiques aficionado, choose colors that celebrate the retro hipness of repurposed objects. Use colors like Bold Brick (SW 6327), or Urbane Bronze from the Urban Organic collection, to add substance to kitchen cabinets. Give a mudroom an eclectic twist with Armagnac walls and a Parakeet (SW 6711) green bench. For additional inspiration and information on HGTV HOME by Sherwin-Williams, visit hgtv.

Studio Arts for Dancers: Teaching dance to the greater Knoxville Community for 23 years

TUDIO ARTS for Dancers is celebrating 23 years of dance instruction in the Knoxville community. Founded in 1990 by Lisa Hall McKee, STUDIO ARTS’ artistic director has influenced thousands of children with her commitment to both artistry and technical excellence in her students. “Dance is for everybody,” McKee says. “It is for young, old, big, small, coordinated and especially the uncoordinated. Our philosophy is to teach it right and motivate our students to love dance and the work that it entails. Every individual is different and we encourage our dancers to celebrate that, fi nd out what their


body is capable of and achieve it without worry about where their peers are. Dance is an individual sport rt taught in a group environment.” STUDIO ARTS for Dancers offers classes in preballet, ballet, pointe, repertoire,, modern, Horton, jazz azz and tap. Classes are re offered for pre-school age 3 through preprofessional and are even branching into a teen and adult beginning ballet program. STUDIO ARTS is committed to each student at each

level. Following a specific syllabus, McKee ensures all students learn ballet history, anatomy and terminology. “It doesn’t matter to me that they take dance as a recreation. I still want them to learn dance correctly, love it and appreciate the art of dance. It is something they will carry with them their whole life. It is a discipline that is a life skill. I love it when students come back as adults (sometimes with their own children) and tell me how important the work ethic and respect they learned at the studio has been to their lives. It makes what we do here have meaning.” With a current eenrollment of more than 300 students and a 5,000-square foot high-tech fa facility with video ob observation in al all three studios, STU STUDIO ARTS cu currently has te ten teachers on staff and con continues to host presti prestigious teachers and choreographers from all over the US to work with its stu students. STUDIO ARTS pr produces high cali caliber artistic and techni technical excellence in its young students. st “While the majority of o our students dance just becau because they love it, many have profess professional aspirations, and it is our job to ensure they are prepared.” Many of McKee’s McK students have been accepted acce to prestigious summer sum dance programs including Tennessee Governor’s School of the Arts, Joffrey Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Lines, Jacobs Pillow and others, as well as prestigious

collegiate dance programs. Many of our dancers have continued on to professional performance careers. “What is great and unique about our program is that we have highly qualified staff ensuring correct, safe

and creative teaching methods no matter what the level or personal aspirations of each student. We are dance educators.” STUDIO ARTS for Dancers performs annually at the Historic Tennessee Theatre and is the home of GO! Contemporary Dance Works, a nonprofit youth dance company which blends contemporary ballet, modern, aerial arts and culturally influenced dance forms. It’s not too late to register for classes.

Dance that speaks to the soul ance has a language all its own, a language which speaks to the soul. GO! Contemporary Dance Works speaks to all audiences, no matter what their tastes, as the company’s performances are a fusion of ballet, modern dance, ethnic dance and aerial arts. GO!, a local nonprofit contemporary dance company comprised of 25 local youths aged 12 to 21, began in 2002 under the direction of artistic director Lisa Hall McKee. This dance company has provided more than 200 young local dancers with an outlet for performance and artistic expression. These dancers also receive professional-level training from some of the greatest dancers nationwide. But, GO! Contemporary Dance Works isn’t just about performance for its own sake. The company was founded with a heart for the community. The company has performed for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra in its educational outreach programs, and as guest artists for the KSO’s Clayton Holiday Concerts and the Knoxville Opera Company’s Rossini Festival. Each summer, GO! hosts The Lighthouse, an afterschool program for Austin Homes as students there learn dance with a message. GO! is not for the average dance audience. “All productions are original and thought-provoking works for our audience, and usually more risktaking when it comes to dance. We keep upping our caliber because our audience keeps upping their expectations,” McKee explains. “Last February’s ‘Unsung Heroes, the Women of WWII,’ was met with accolades from the community.” GO! will present both new and revisited works in “Full Spectrum,” at 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, and 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, at the Clarence


Brown Theatre. GO! will revisit “Angst,” a striking heavy metal ballet of Metallica music which pits good against evil while pushing the physical limitation of both ballet and modern dance. Audiences can look forward to a fascinating performance of lighthearted humor, aerial dance with silks and edgy choreography mixed with a high degree of artistic excellence. The production is appropriate for all ages. GO! is proud to participate in the Penny 4 Arts program. For the Sunday, Oct. 13, 3p.m. matinee, GO! will offer a limited number of children’s tickets for one cent if purchased with an adult ticket. McKee says, “We want to encourage all age groups to attend the theater, and a great place to start is with this performance.” This performance is sponsored in part by Pilot Corporation, Tennessee Arts Commission and WUOT 91.9FM.

Ticket prices are $16 for adults and $12 for children, students and seniors if bought in advance and $18/$14 if purchased at the door. Tickets for the performance may be purchased by calling 539-2475, online at or in person at the theatre on the day of the performance.

City se rets By Carol B C l Zi Zinavage


s a big fan of the Big Apple, I’m always looking for ways and means to visit New York. Recently, some generous friends offered me the use of their Hell’s Kitchen apartment for the better part of a week. You can bet I jumped at that chance. This was a budget trip, by choice. No shows or concerts, only one expensive dinner out, not too many souvenirs. Teaming up with a friend of mine who also happens to like New York, we were casting about for ideas when we came across a little book entitled “City Secrets: New York City,” edited by Robert Kahn. It’s part of a series of insiders’ guides to great cities of the world. Divided into chapters according to the various areas of the city (“West Village,” “Upper East Side,” “The Theater District,”) and including such contributors as handbag designer Kate Spade and actor Eric Stoltz, the book is chockfull of oddities that can be found only if one knows where to look. There’s the poignant grave monument “erected to the memory of an amiable child” that stands alone, up above Grant’s Tomb on the northwest tip of Manhattan Island. It seems that in July of 1797, 5-year-old St. Clair Pollock fell to his death from that very spot. More than 200 years later, those who know it’s there are still touched by this tribute. I know I was. Did you know that at least one New Yorker refused to give in to the everrising skyscraper trend? On East 60th street, near Lexington Avenue, you can view the result of an old lady’s stubbornness. An elderly Italian woman had lived on the top floor of a small brownstone for many years. When contractors showed up offering money to get her to vacate so that they could build a brand-new glass and steel office building, she refused. And she wouldn’t budge, even when the offer reached $1 million. The builders decided to build around her, hoping that the construction noise

The resident of this brownstone just wouldn’t budge.

and chaos would drive her out. Well, they got their skyscraper built, but the lady stayed. Now her brownstone is encased in the glass and steel, but still turns its face staunchly to the street, a proud reminder of one citizen’s resolve. And it’s said she kept its window boxes fi lled with flowers, in every season, to the end of her days. Smack in the middle of the Upper West side, sandwiched between West End Avenue and Broadway, there’s a cozy, very English street of shuttered cottages and flower gardens called “The Pomander Walk.” It was built in 1921 by a nightclub impresario as part of a larger plan that never materialized. It’s now a gated co-op apartment complex. Our agreement with the maintenance man who was kind enough to let us in included “no pictures.” I encourage you to Googleimage it – it’s right out of a storybook. Small houses of a different sort can be viewed in a “high”-ly unlikely place across the street from the Whitney Museum of Art. Artist Charles Simonds’ piece “Dwellings” exists in three parts, two of which are

A zoom lens on your camera will quickly bring into view a tiny village of adobe houses, perched on a second-story window ledge. If you’re having trouble spotting them, look for the protective plexiglass sheet installed as a roof above them. Although we did look for it, we were

unable to spot the other “Dwellings” installation, which is apparently located on the same building in an air shaft. Maybe we’ll fi nd it next time.

Or maybe, armed with our trusty “secrets” guide, we’ll seek out even more eccentricities in the great city of New York!

Leather, lace and

color, color, color L

eather and lace – sometimes used together, sometimes not – represent one of the hottest new looks in women’s fashion for the fall and winter. Betsy Foster, women’s buyer for M. S. McClellan, says the latest designs show the two trimming everything from shirts and blouses to jackets, vests and even pants. Designers are also pairing leather with ponte knit, offering leather jackets with ponte sleeves, and ponte jackets with leather sleeves and trim. Leather is trimming pockets, forming waistbands, decorating hems and running down the sides of garments in either monochromatic design or in contrasting colors. And on the subject of colors, Foster says the season’s most important hues are rich jewel tones, including merlot, purple, fuchsia and turquoise. Color blocking is playing a major role in fall and winter fashion, and it’s showing up in all garments, from jeans to formal dresses. Prints remain popular for the cooler months, with print jeans at the top of the list. Foster says the silhouette for fall and winter continues the trend of wider on the top than on the bottom, with leggings still popular, especially under tunics, either belted or unbelted. Jewelry for the season is longer, in keeping with those longer blouses, tunics and sweaters, and scarves remain as important as ever to women’s fashion. In the menswear department, buyer Dan Kocks says a popular brand the store discontinued about 10 years ago is making a comeback with fall and winter lines, in keeping with M. S. McClellan’s continuing effort to buy goods made in the U.S. The line is Southwick, and Kocks says the manufacturer has a new factory in the northeastern U.S. that is turning out exceptionally high-quality work. “We are doing a ton of “Made in the

USA” business,” Kocks says. “We are seeing more companies try to shift some of their production back here and also a lot of small start-up U.S. companies turning out exceptional products.” Kocks says the fall designs in menswear continue modern, slimmer lines, flat-front trousers, shorter coats and narrow lapels on jackets. “Overall, it’s a more bodyconscious look. Even the ties are trimmer, to go along with the narrow lapels.” Kocks says outdoor looks are still important “for casual weekends and for those who don’t have to wear dress clothing on a regular basis, and we’re also seeing a lot of outerwear inspired by a military tradition.” Color is exploding in menswear in fall lines, but the tones are muted and have a washed look, which softens the color and eliminates shine. “A bright, summer red will appear in the fall as more of a barn red, more weathered looking.” Kocks says his department is filled “with really beautiful sweaters and outerwear. The trends for lightweights and layering are important. Just how much layering to do will be predicated, of course, on what kind of weather we have this winter.” M. S. McClellan is located at 5614 Kingston Pike in Melrose Place shopping center. Store hours are 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday. Info: or 584-3492.
