New Video: Thank You for our Brunello Cucinelli Event

April 26, 2017

We couldn’t be more excited about our most recent event for Brunello Cucinelli. They are creators of beautiful clothes, but they also provide us with an idea to strive towards. They represent a company that invests in it’s community first and we want to mirror that in Michigan. This fall, we will be introducing our community mandate to the public, inspired by your devotion to assist us. The success of this event has showed us we can make a difference and serve both our clients and the community simultaneously. To all of our clients that were able to attend our event, thank you, for you have helped create a difference in our shared story. Because of you, we are able to donate over $10,000 to our local ALS clinic.

He has been a part of our family for eleven years. Jim has traveled all over the world collecting A.K. Field Notes and understands the importance of appreciating where you live.

Not to say we won’t have other stores at some point but every store we will ever open will be a part of the community that it lives in. That is what makes the store special.” Get to know what holds the most influence on Jim’s perspective through a series of questions in our Behind The Seams with A.K. RIKK’S interview.
