So remember that little detour Mercutio Krispytreats and I took while we were waiting for our tour at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery? Well that brought us to none other than Cake #143 at STL Style. Nestled on a corner of Cherokee Street, they are the home for all of your St. Louis-inspired needs! Mercutio and I had visited this cute shop before, but we definitely utilized the opportunity to poke around a bit again and admire all of the posters, t-shirts and other items that have one thing in common: St. Louis.
According to their website, STL Style was started in 2001 by identical twin brothers Jeff and Randy Vines and has moved from a basement t-shirt shop to a full on store. Their mission through it all has been to promote our city like none other and to embrace all of the rough and smooth edges that it has to offer.
Personally I’m a sucker for anything that has the St. Louis flag on it and Mercutio, at the time, was partial to the maps of the city. But I think no matter where you’re from, or what part of St. Louis inspires you, you can’t go wrong with a little homegrown pride and STL Style definitely has that in spades.
