It's hard to say what I found most impressive - the amount of high-quality men's wear (most of which made in the USA) or the kindness and graciousness of the staff and, especially the owner, Wayne Dean. Wayne is the son of the store founder (you guessed it), George Walker Dean. Sadly, George Dean passed away on October 2, 2008 at age 88 . He was a veritable fixture in Athens business and community life for many years. He opened George Dean's in 1966 when he bought the long-standing John Q. West apparel shop. He is best remembered for his love of people and treating all those that passed through the doors of his shop with fairness and decency. His son, Wayne, continues that tradition to this day.

|Everything (and I do mean EVERYTHING) the well dressed southern gentleman could need is here.|
|If I ever feel that I can "pull off" a hat, I'll know where to find one!|
|I will be returning for a Seersucker suite and many other "must haves!"|
|Similar to the one I purchased, but mine is red & black (go Dawgs)!|
