GROWop's Joshua Hahn Mixes "Suit-up" and Sustainable Style in Downtown Phoenix
Just south of downtown's colorful, in-vogue strip, Roosevelt Row, sits GROWop, a beautifully maintained historic house engulfed by a well preserved community garden. This little gem harbors the corner of Roosevelt and Sixth streets, where Joshua Hahn and Kenny Barrett began their non-profit community garden and vintage fashion boutique.
Brenna Rupert Grow Op owner, Joshua Hahn. Sporting the Pendleton Portland Collection, Donegal trousers and J.Crew Camp Socks
Hahn, owner and operator, is the epitome of a "sharply dressed man." Each piece of Hahn's apparel is strategically coordinated to reflect on his "duck-hunter chic" style. Paying tribute to his hunter-esque style, Hahn incorporates the Portland collection into his daily garb.
What is the last item of clothing you purchased?
An arrow vintage, tie-pin, which I love. It's actually something that is going to be super popular for spring, which I'm really excited about.
What sort of fashion do you create?
For myself, I create very classic American looks, but with modern twists. So, if I wear plaid or flannel, for instance, instead of pairing it with something that's rugged, I'll pair it with something that is super clean and tailored to give it more of a formal look. It's like having this masculine look but having it tailored and fitted to make it clean and modern.
What's the last thing you designed?
I'm more of a fashion curator. I curate every time I'm at my shop, whether it's with customers or merchandising, it's pulling pieces together to make a certain look or lifestyle. I pull ideas of fashion and design together.
