“Quincy Corner” Just Got A Little Fancier – Northeast, Minneapolis

“Quincy Corner” Just Got A Little Fancier – Northeast, Minneapolis

If you asked google to find the best place in Minneapolis for custom suits, you’d likely find @kingbrosclothiers

These @northeastminneapolis locals, @kennyking4 & @dannygusking, are the twin brothers + business partners behind the specialized bespoke suits at @kingbrosclothiers

They started 10 years ago as a line of ties, but as the years went on they realized custom clothing was their long-term goal.

For the last 6 years they’ve been operating out of a NE studio space, but almost 2 weeks ago, they transitioned to a new retail space on the block of Quincy St NE & 15th Ave NE.

Their current little tin space is totally unassuming on the outside. It was vacant for years and then turned into an Airbnb for a stint. It’s a space that doesn’t catch your eye… until you go inside, and that’s exactly what they wanted, something with a bit of a “wow” factor.

The same reaction is true of their clients when they try on their custom suits! Kenny and Danny work hard to keep their clients feeling good, which isn’t difficult when you’re personally sourcing fabric from some of the best mills in England and Italy.

Clothing has always meant a lot to the King Bros. Growing up as twins meant they had to share everything — a room, a car, a womb — so clothing was the only thing they had for themselves. If they didn’t wear something different from each other, no one would be able to tell them apart. So that became a “unwritten rule” of theirs, to never share clothing, and that still holds true today.

When asked why they love NE so much, their answer was synonymous — it’s a booming area with so much to do. They love that “Quincy Corner” provides options for their clients to stay and support the local establishments after a fitting, creating a sense of community.

They have clients who tell them they schedule their fittings at certain times so they can grab a beer at @indeedbrewing or tacos at @centro_mpls afterwards, and we think that’s pretty great!

Deveric (DJ) Stokes Jr, sous chef at @haihaimpls in @northeastminneapolis was taken from the world too soon when he drowned trying to save his friend who was struggling in the water while on Lake Minnetonka a few days ago. DJ made a huge impact on so many lives in his 29 years. Friends and family describe him as big-hearted, kind, talented, positive, spiritual, passionate, charismatic, a chef that put soul into whatever he cooked. He got his love of hospitality and cooking from his mom who had an open door and was always feeding people and taking care of them. If you came into @haihaimpls on a Sunday morning, he would be prepping, blasting gospel music and singing along beautifully, and you couldn’t help but smile. His family at @haihaimpls misses him so much. The staff says, “It hasn’t set in yet and it’s not right that something so tragic happened to someone so young with such a bright future ahead. Hai Hai will never be the same again.” Our heart goes out to his family, friends, and everyone whose life he touched. If you’d like to help DJ’s family cover his funeral costs, please visit the GFM link in our profile. Please leave a message with some words or memories about DJ, or a message of healing to his family below. Rest In Peace, DJ.

The Best of Northeast – Minneapolis, MN

Sharing stories in and around the Northeast Minneapolis community. No corner of our community is free from racial injustices. We are facing uncomfortable truths and want to face them head on together to work for change.

We also see that through our community’s losses, beauty is blossoming in the form of mural art and togetherness and the visual call to action is clear.

Here’s what @preserveminneapolis is doing: As a way of standing in solidarity and preserving George Floyd’s memory, we are creating a public online exhibition of this outpouring of street art across the city of Minneapolis.

We will layer it on our virtual map of historic Minneapolis sites.
We want this to be a way to preserve and share these signs of community solidarity with those within and beyond our city and help us all better understand how we relate to each other.
Thank you @preserveminneapolis for keeping the memory of George Floyd alive.Tag @northeastminneapolis and @preserveminneapolis in any murals across Mpls.
