I love this new store, owned by Phillip....it caters to the Style Forum type in every way...I took some pics from my latest visit...each piece of clothing has a story to it, the prices are VERY reasonable and the staff knows how to cater to the discerning customer. A little descriptor about them below the pics...I just left but I can't wait to come back already!

Totem Brand focuses on American-made and manufactured brands, as well an attitude towards high quality, durable and practical fashion.
New retailer Totem Brand is now open at 529 South Street. It features a wide selection of U.S.-manufactured brands such as Red Wing, Wolverine, Danner, Raleigh Denim, Rogue Territory, Taylor Stitch and Pointer Brand. Focusing mainly on menswear, Totem Brand also carries a selection of natural candles, soaps and incense from Juniper Ridge, Re-Wined and Sydney Hale Co.

A recent study by Boston Consulting Group showed that more than 80% of American consumers would choose products labeled “Made in USA” over those labeled “Made in China”. With a majority of clothing and shoe retailers manufacturing their products in China, Totem Brand aims to increase the visibility and availability of American-made premium brands to the fashion-savvy Philadelphian.

With all the flood of cheap Chinese and Asian goods on the US market, you have to look high and low to find something still made in Anerica. We consume but we don't give back to this country.

Its heartening to see a business that wants to change this dismal trend and I wish you the best with your venture!
