ROBERT TALBOTT

This lux­ury menswear line re­cently opened in the haute Shops Buck­head At­lanta, which is con­sis­tently likened to the South’s own Rodeo Drive. Robert Talbott takes a ma­te­ri­als-first ap­proach to its pieces, which means each gar­ment is crafted with a sin­gu­lar fo­cus on crafts­man­ship and qual­ity. The re­sult­ing line of­fers mod­ern twists on old-school mas­cu­line sil­hou­ettes, like a sweater jacket that man­ages to com­bine the best as­pects of blaz­ers and cardi­gans. Open daily. 3035 Peachtree Road, 404.565.4819. www.robert­tal­bott.com
