Neilson’s Necessities: Gentlemen’s Getaway Grabs

Neilson's necessities

 

“One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.”

– Henry Miller, an American author

We found our destination at Neilson’s Department Store, and we are looking to pack all the Johnson & Murphy shoes, Mizzen & Main shirts, and Brax pants in our Rucksack for a spring time getaway (see below)!

 


Spring time means travel time. As poet Ralph Waldo Emerson said it, “though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”

We traveled to the Square and found the perfect carry-on bag for all your finds! 

  • Rucksack by Mountain Khaki: $179
  • Saddle Brown Belt by Torino: $70

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”

– Mark Twain, an American author


If being a true gentleman never goes out of fashion, then the South’s oldest department store is timeless because of its Southern chivalry! Dress to impress at your new destination with this Grey Tattersall Mizzen & Main button down and these Everest Grey Brax pants. 

  • Everest Grey pants by Brax
  • Grey Tattersall shirt by Mizzen and Main:$125

“You should put on the best version of yourself when you go out in the world because that is a show of respect to the other people around you.”

-Tom Ford, Fashion Designer and Style Icon

“Oh, the places you’ll go.” – Theodor (Dr. Seuss) Geisel, an American children’s author and cartoonist


  Albert Einstein had the right idea when he said, “If you can’t explain it simply, then you don’t understand it well enough.” We understand traveling with Neilson’s well enough to explain it.

Dress like JFK, Speak like Hemmingway, Work like Ralph Lauren, Party like Gatsby, and Travel like Neilson’s.

  • Copper Beige pants by Brax
  • Whitman Powder Blue Check by Mizzen and Main: $125

“And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.”

– Pico Iyer, an Oxford, England, travel author 


“Time goes on. So whatever you’re going to do. Do it. Do it now. Don’t wait.”

– Robert De Niro, an American actor

Time to just getaway. Time to grab your getaway bag. Time to grab your getaway clothes. Time to go on an adventure to Neilson’s Department Store. Do it. Do it now. Don’t wait.
