Trends to Know for Fall 2021

The shirt jacket will begin making an appearance this September in multiple brands and fabrics across the shop. Some will have stretch, while others will be wool or cotton. They can be a replacement for a casual sport coat, an added layering piece, outerwear, or your newest Zoom jacket.

These “shirkets” can take the wearer from lounge to luxe and back to lounge, easy to pair with drawstring casual trousers or khaki pants. Denim will be the most comfortable and easiest to add, but think colored bottoms beside the traditional blue.

Layer easily with a printed Eton shirt or a Live LIVE henley tee. As the weather changes to true fall, you can add light long sleeve knits, hoodies, and even a turtleneck to the shirket.
The possibilities are endless, yet fun, fashionable, and comfortable!

Please follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see how we envision all these outfits at Ken’s.

In Other News… Class of 1965, John King

We were sent this article from an alumnus at GHS and wanted to share. This is an article about the jobs GHS students secured after graduating. We love the story about John King, plus the advertisements are priceless. The Ken’s ad was conceptualized and drawn by Ken himself.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
