IT PLAID TO BE YOU.

IT PLAID TO BE YOU.

f_10Classic Key West, Tucker’s Provisions says. Classic Key West is us: Douglas and Barry, a dog groomer and an event planner. Met at a runway show in Ohio to benefit a poodle rescue. Booked a cruise from Ft. Lauderdale, overnighting in Key West. Married at La Te Da and haven’t left the island since. Our families forgave us eventually, sort of. We’re invited to the annual reunion at my family farm and what we’ll wear (because, of course, we have that planned already) are not-quite-matching-but-coordinated, double cloth plaid shirts from Tucker’s. Soft as tissue, they feel like they’ve been worn for years. Like home. Like our Key West. It happened at Tucker’s Provisions, 611 Duval Street.
