Lifestyle Style


Have you ever seen photos or paintings of dapper English gentlemen and women on a pheasant hunt? Picture plaid blazers, a vest, slacks and tweed or corduroy caps. Today, hunting looks a little different with blaze orange and comfort-wear replacing formalwear. But the spirit of the hunt remains the same.

When I first stepped into Heimie’s Haberdashery in downtown St. Paul, I felt like I was instantly taken back to yesteryear, but with a modern twist. Heimie’s creates artisan bags and field gear, as well as custom suits and other accessories . These beautiful bags are designed and handcrafted in St. Paul, MN by master artisan and owner of Heimie’s Haberdashery, Anthony Andler. He’s a pheasant hunter himself and has plans to start a pheasant and fly fishing guide service as Heimie’s Haberdashery expands.

Looking for a holiday gift idea for the hunter or adventure-seeker in your life? Whether you’re a guy or gal, hunting comes with accessories — something to hold your shotgun and shells. Heimie’s gun slips and bags are not only unique and stylish, but the highest quality. Even my husband Nick noted the craftsmanship of the gun slip I brought on our latest hunting trip. The bags are great for carrying a ton of shotgun shells or any other loose gear you need to bring. I actually used my leather bag at the gun club while trap shooting. It was very handy since the vest I have only carries a few shells.

Heimie’s also creates rolltop backpacks that are perfect for a day of hiking, camping or overnight travel.  I think the travel duffles are ideal for weekends away, especially handy during holiday travels. These bags feel practical and luxurious all at the sametime.

I am all about adding a little style to my outdoor adventures. As they say, “look good — feel good, feel good — play good.” There’s something special about Heimie’s artisan field gear and bags. While holding the gun slip and ammo bag in my hands and walking through the fields, I can sense that a lot of heart and thought went into each product. These are statement pieces that will remain timeless for outdoor enthusiasts — and it’s all made right here in Minnesota.

Be sure to use code: LAKES GIRL at checkout when you shop Heinie’s online to get 10 percent off your bag or field gear. It’s never too early to start thinking about holiday shopping or treating yourself to something extra special.
