Menswear boutique Franklin & Mercer is turning one – and you’re invited to join the festivus.

Shop owner Ryan Crisman has shared some details around the party and what folks can expect at his Lawrenceville storefront.

Franklin & Mercer’s One-Year Anniversary Party

On Friday, Nov 15, you can roll over to Franklin & Mercer for all the food, drinks and fun from 5pm to 9pm at their Lawrenceville digs (3507 Butler St).

One thing to note: the Raleigh Denim Workshop trunk show will be on-site beginning at 12pm for folks arriving early.

Raleigh Denim Workshop

The popular raw denim design and manufacturing team (based in Raleigh, NC) will pop-up at Franklin & Mercer for a trunk show (noon to 9pm). The trunk show will feature both men’s and women’s pieces (including women’s denim). Company co-founder Victor Lyvtinenko will be on-site with his Union Special sewing machine to offer free on-site hemming for guests.


Get yourself set up with a delicious bite from Pita My Shawarma. The food truck will be on-site serving up the good stuff beginning at 5pm.

Pro Tip: Go early. The first 20 guests will receive $10 food truck vouchers.


Franklin & Mercer offers complimentary Iron City beer, so help yourself. Guests will also be treated to Kingfly Spirits – the distillery team from the Strip District will be on-site with sample cocktails, rum & bourbon tastings and bottle sales.


Finally, Franklin & Mercer plans to give away one complete outfit; Selvedge denim jeans, Selvedge denim jacket, tee-shirt, button down shirt and socks. A winner will be announced the day after the party.
