In Tune Groom: Coast & Canter

It’s not every day that I come across groomsmen gifts that are functional, stylish and support a local entrepreneur, which is exactly what I found at Coast & Canter, which was started by Brendan Brandt, a Christopher Newport University junior. 

Seaside Pocket T-shirt. $34.99

In addition to his stylish coastal designs and incredibly comfortable clothes, the goals for his company are equally impressive. While he’s starting small, he’s definitely got big plans. 

Brandt wanted to create an upscale clothing company that featured functional and wearable items, produced entirely in the U.S. Thanks to recent press, he has been in conversation with the local chapter of a prominent non-profit organization, working to be one of their licensed vendors. This would allow profits generated from several specialty garments to be given back to the community. 

Purple Koozie. $5.00

Whether you’re having a beach-themed wedding or not, you can’t deny that comfort is a style everyone can get on board with. Here are a just a few of the products that would make perfect groomsmen gifts—pair one of his Seaside Pocket T-shirts with your favorite pair of boat shoes or use a koozie adorned with his trademark seahorse logo to keep your beverages cold. 


Here are a just few of the products that are turning heads and making waves!
