There are no ordinary days in this city and you are guaranteed to find entertainment simply strolling down the French Quarter. The annual Jazz Fest wraps up the first weekend of May and it brings to its stage world-famous performers like Elton John and some of the most prominent names in modern jazz and funk.

The body has been slightly lengthened, and hand pockets are lined with a Japanese fine wale black corduroy.

Optical brand KREWE was founded in 2013 by Stirling Barrett, a New Orleans native and creative entrepreneur. His vision of the city as a thriving cultural hub was his inspiration for launching the brand. His team passionately believes in spreading the culture of New Orleans and its celebration of individual style one frame at a time. Historically, the term “krewe” (ˈkrü) is linked to Mardi Gras, a tradition that is uniquely associated with New Orleans. It attempts to define the diverse group that comes together to parade in celebration of the Carnival season and inspired the name which invokes this spirit of creative collaboration.
