Style is all about expressing yourself. And everyone's style is different. At Players, customers can up the ante on their athletic wear with one-of-a-kind t-shirts, designer denim, and rare and limited release Nike and Jordan kicks. Shelves and racks are stocked with brands such as Parish, LRG, Neff, DGK, Levis, AtLab, and Coke Boys, including t-shirts and New Era caps emblazoned with logos of MLB, NBA, and NFL teams. Old school Nike's pair well with tees bearing the horned logo of the Chicago Bulls, while an orange button down shirt can create a fresh look with a straight-billed Cleveland Browns cap. The shop also carries a number of camouflage shorts, designer shirts, and basketball shorts to ensure customers can complete their new outfits without having to join the most dangerous knitting club in town, the knit wits.
Opening a new business in the middle of a recession takes bravery. Yet, in 2009—on the heels of their success with their first boutique, Fopp’s—Courage. b’s owners decided it was time to open the store. Since their days at Fopp’s, the Courage. b line’s designers have been fabricating each of their pieces in-house with looks that give off a timeless, European elegance. Their one-of-a-kind blouses, sweaters, and pants are as fashionable as they are classic. And their dresses and separates seamlessly weave into most wardrobes. The collection also includes original accessories, such as handbags, scarves, and belts. Since opening, Courage. b now has several locations in style hubs from East Hampton to Colorado, a testament to the clothing’s accessibility and stylishness, whether during cocktail hour or snowball-fight hour.
The staffers at Sunsets Tanning declare that their mission is to make clients “look good naked.” To do this, they put their Smart Tan certification to use to outline a tan plan based on each client’s skin tone and desired shade of bronze. Then they guide clients into private treatment rooms for airbrush tanning or show them how to hop into tanning beds—like a bunny, preferably. Both the rooms and the beds within them are meticulously cleaned by the spa’s staff. They also change each bed’s bulbs after 200 hours of service so that they always shine as brightly and evenly as the fluorescent scales of justice that hang outside of the Supreme Court.
