Dandy's gentlemen's store held an old-time grand opening party on Friday. The downtown haberdashery specializes in custom-made gentlemen's items, from suits to shoes and grooming kits.

Couple and owners Christopher and Wendy say they formed the concept for Dandy's when they couldn't find stylish, well-tailored suit for Christopher to wear during their impending nuptials.

They've now filled the void for the well-kempt man interested in quality 1870's through 1930's garb with their first dedicated retail space.
