GARY ALLAN SHOWS HIS STYLE WITH NASHVILLE CLOTHING STORE
With his affinity for tattoos, tight jeans and tighter T-shirts, Gary Allan has spent years honing his personal style and living the image he projects. Now, in partnership with his stylist, Renee Layher, he’s opening his own high-end clothing store in Nashville, so locals with a big enough wallet can dress in similar cutting-edge fashion.
Obviously, it’s not all jeans and T-shirts. Allan’s store, called The Label, opens today at 2222 12th Ave. S., and everything in the store is for sale. That means the guitars on the wall, the art, the light fixtures and the tables and chairs all have a price tag. But the clothes — from Tony Sartino custom-tailored suits starting at $3,200 to Logan Riese custom leather jackets — are the real stars.
Sartino, a stylist known for dressing the likes of Jon Bon Jovi and Prince, plans to make monthly visits to The Label to not only help run the store but also to tailor items for customers.
There are 12 designers featured at The Label.
“We’ve talked about doing this for 10 years,” Allan says. “We always said we should start a store. It came together way better than I thought it would.”
