    Reflecting on 4 years of Business

    Reflecting on 4 years of Business

    This past month, OLE MASON JAR reached a major milestone...our 4th year of being in business. All too often in this industry, it is easy to get caught up in thinking about the future and only focus on moving forward, so it was actually nice to pause and reflect on how far we have come in those 4 years!

    Travel: NYC Market

    Posted on
    I am not going to lie, when we were first starting OLE MASON JAR the thought of business trips to New York was alluring and glamorous ... Four years latter I am here to say that while yes there are certainly cool aspects of it, it is far from the ideas of grandeur I once expected. It is grueling, especially in the winter, and days are spent on the go, you hardly have time to catch your breath and are constantly overwhelmed. All that being said, our latest trip to NYC was certainly a success and I was able to snap a few pictures as well.

    The Polo shirt, also known as a golf or tennis shirt, has been worn since the early 1900's but they didn't start out as the polo we know today.  Tennis players would wear a long-sleeved white button-up shirt with the sleeves rolled up for ease of play.

Somehow though, despite countless excuses and reasons to why we didn't think we were ready, we simply went for it...and couldn't be happier that we did!

    Ladies and Gentleman, we have officially launched into the physical retail world...The Sporting Gent. An incredibly welcoming store that exudes the sporting lifestyle, the Sporting Gent is neatly tucked into the Myers Park area on Selwyn Avenue in Charlotte, North Carolina.
