Charleston is an incredible city that is full of history, award winning dining, retail, architecture, and unique local makers. Every day I am reminded how lucky I am to live here. The weather is perfect and the people are genuinely nice. It's a rare occasion to hear a car honk its horn for a reason other than to say hello to a friend as you drive by. I love this city.
In the beginning of 2018, 843 Shop was born out of a realization that we lacked a brand that people could proudly wear to show their love of this city. We opened an online store and did pop-ups around town until we found a retail location that perfectly suited our needs. 194 King Street is now our home and we welcome you to come say hi and introduce yourself.
We currently have a little over a dozen designs and are moving to all made in America shirts that are all printed locally and designed locally. It is important to us that you are happy with your purchase. Our goal is to provide you with a shirt that you WANT to wear. There's nothing worse than buying a shirt with a design that you love but is so uncomfortable that you regret taking it out of the drawer and putting it on. A good shirt should be worn out, slept in, stolen by your significant other, worn two days in a row, and the reason you do laundry - so you can wear it again as soon as possible. We guarantee our products. If for any reason you aren't happy, please let us know, and we will do our best to make it right.
A few brands have been an inspiration for creating 843 Shop: Tom's Shoes has always impressed me with their buy a pair, give a pair model. 704 Shop in Charlotte has shown me what a brand that loves their city can do to be a part of the local community. Brands like The Hundreds and Supreme have blown my mind with their role in the street wear scene. Locally, J. Stark has been the biggest influence on me to create a product. They inspire me to continually grow to be a better brand that offers a better product that will become an enjoyable part of your day to day life.
