The other day, I visited with a gentleman named Eric Corbyn. We sat down and got to know each other on a particular Saturday, and visited about a wide variety of topics while we watched that weekend’s PGA tour event on television. Through our conversation, I learned that Mr. Corbyn is a straight shooter and definitely doesn’t pull any punches. He tells it exactly like it is…which is how I found out several things…like how much he dislikes Tiger, loved the Beatles (mostly Lennon), and used to mix it up with administrators while he was attending college.
Without a doubt, Eric Corbyn is one of the most unique gentleman that I have ever met, and that only adds credibility to the reason that he has been so successful. Corbyn has been a clothier for a good part of his life, but only until fairly recently has it been in his best interests.
After spending most of his professional career working for other local clothiers, about seven years ago, Mr. Corbyn grew tired of being the employee and decided to become the employer. He started a retail clothing store that has become synonymous with good style and quite popular with the college kids who wish to dress properly.
Corbyn’s Classic Traditional Clothing is a men’s and women’s clothing store. For the Prep out there, this is the final word in where to shop. With brands like Vineyard Vines, Southern Tide, Bills Khakis, Southern Proper, and Allen Edmonds, just to name a few, it’s no wonder that Corbyn’s has set itself apart from the rest of the pack in Amarillo, TX.
At first it becomes overwhelming just how much product Corbyn’s carries. There are so many things to look at, that a person really needs at least three visits to properly take in the offerings at this establishment. One of my favorite spots in Corbyn’s, and one I plan on visiting this weekend is the nook where Mr. Corbyn has the Smathers and Branson needlepoint key fobs. When you take a look at it for yourself, make sure to ask Eric about the picture that hangs just above…see below.
For sure, there is a lot more that I could add to this article, but I think that we’ll leave it at that for the time being. We will be sure to visit with Mr. Corbyn much more and talk about it here periodically, but right now, I think that you yourself need to go see what Corbyn’s is all about. Trust me…the clothing is unforgettable and the conversation is killer! Tell Eric that Panhandle Prep says hey.
