Kempt is a modern men’s clothing store started by UGA fashion merchandising grad Ryder Chosewood. The store features a variety of styles from small batch brands, Made in USA goods, and local Georgia designers. Offering elevated basics, trend-forward denim, and quality accessories, Kempt aims to meet the needs of the Classic City guy. In Kempt, you'll find the newest styles in menswear on the shelf next to Oma's sewing machine from 1928. In the fashion industry, there's a pendulum swing, where old becomes new and decades-old styles become trend-worthy again. You'll find a curated collection, mixing the classic with the brand new. Trendsetting California surf brands, but also the kind of stuff your great grandpa might have worn that is still timeless now. There's red and black for when all of the Classic City is honoring its traditions by ringing the bell, and there are shiny bar tools to use while you mix a whole lot of whiskey with a little bit of something else. the store is the contrast of a few styles, a few ideas.
