Nearly a year and a half after opening their original location, Patrick and Mary Burch, owners of Cave + Post Trading Co., recently moved their popular men’s boutique into an expanded space in the former Easley’s Fun Shop (509 W. McDowell Road, Suite 102, Phoenix).
“We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response to the shop,” says Cave + Post co-owner Patrick Burch. “Over the past few years, with the rise in work-from-home culture, we’re seeing a lot of guys who work in law, finance and other professional careers shift from suits and ties to great-looking business casual looks. They love coming in and finding so many quality pieces in a really cool space — so much better than searching online or going to the mall.”
The new spot gives them 1,500 square feet to display the men’s apparel, accessories, and one-of-a-kind gifts. Cave + Post also offers a number of items, such as vintage jewelry, shoes, T-shirts, fragrances and home goods, that appeal to both men and women. According to IBIS World, the $15.7 billion men’s apparel industry is expected to grow 2.7% in 2023.
Patrick says Cave + Post, which also has an online store, is always adding new “quality, hip lines” that aren’t carried by other retailers in the Phoenix area, like Filson, Red Wing, Howler Brothers and AO Eyewear, among others.
“Our regulars know they can always find the best stuff here,” says Mary, who was a buyer at Willows Fine Goods and Design for a decade prior to opening Cave + Post. “Men deserve an incredible place to shop, and we pride ourselves on being that place!”
