Southern Gentility

By Yuwa Vosper


With a witty personality complemented by Southern charm, there’s not a room Casey Harrison can walk into where he won’t make a friend. Matched with his magnetism are his clothing choices. The Harrison Metal Works pro has a way of bringing unique city chic to his country style.

“I like my boots and my jeans,” said Harrison. “But, when it comes to shirts I like to step outside the box.”

Growing up in the South, he noticed how most guys wear the typical Polo shirt. Although he does appreciate this look, he wanted something different.

“I like finding something unique and different that no one else has even if I have to get it tailor-made,” said Harrison. “It’s worth the extra money to get the look that no one else will have.”

Harrison’s favorite local store for unique shirts? The Garage Custom Men’s Shop.


His Clothing Favorites


Typical to most Southern charmers, his Chubbies shorts are his favorite item of clothing.

“They are perfect because they are not too long and you can wear them with everything,” he said.

Besides his Chubbies shorts, he also wears his Hudson boot-cut jeans most often. Harrison prefers this brand because of the fit.

“Being a smaller guy, finding clothing to fit is very difficult for me,” he said. “Hudson goes down to a smaller waist and the length can always be tailored.”


Fitting His Frame


Fit is crucial to Harrison because of his athletic frame. Recently, he completed a full Ironman Triathlon, which is a feat not many athletes in the world have accomplished. His clothing needs to fit his muscular torso and contour, but not constrict his frame. Harrison describes tailoring as an “investment.” He explained that he gets most of his clothing custom tailored at Brown and Brown Custom Clothiers. Harrison has many tailor-made items of clothing ranging from dress shirts to suits.

“It’s worth every penny when you tailor something to fit you correctly,” he said. “Paying extra goes a long way regardless of your size.”


Even though Harrison has city fashion flair, he still admits that his perfect outfit is a pair of khaki shorts, a linen shirt, and flip-flops, proving he will always be a Southern boy at heart.
