Shopping Option For Men

If you’re looking for a holiday gift for your husband or boyfriend, your shopping just got a little bit easier with the grand opening of James Guy Men’s Clothing Store earlier this month. Located at 77 South Street in Oyster Bay, the store sells fashionable items like Timberland jackets, flannel shirts and Trask boots, and shoes made from bison, elk and Longhorn leather.

The store is owned by Catherine Drabin of Chrison & Bellina LLC.

“I wanted to open a store that would cater to men because guys should be able to purchase shirts and socks without having to leave Oyster Bay,” said Drabin. “A lot of what we sell is weekend wear for the casual type of guy.”

James Guy originally opened on Father’s Day and so far the response from the community has been very positive, according to Drabin.

“The majority of our customer base has been commuters getting off the train from the city and wives who are out shopping for their husbands.”

The store, which is themed in a nautical design and outlined with original brick walls and crafted wooden shelves, sells stylish menswear like original Woolrich jackets, K-Way waterproof raincoats and a variety of jeans and t-shirts. Men’s accessory items like ties, wallets and hygienic items are also for sale. Prices range from $10-$20 for small books to $700 for high line Timberland jackets.

Drabin, who goes back and forth between her two stores, said after owning Chrison & Bellina for seven years in the community it was time for men to have their own store to shop at.

“With Chrison & Bellina we’ve been catering to women’s fashion and at this point I’m ready for part two.”

James Guy is open seven days a week, Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

News

This holiday season, Oyster Bay will once again be home to unique, homemade, scrumptious confections from The Chocolate Lady, in the form of a mobile chocolate boutique set up at Buckingham Variety Store on Audrey Avenue. She arrived on Sunday and plans on staying throughout the holidays, and possibly longer.

“I have been developing this concept for the last year and a half and am excited to be coming home to Oyster Bay for this year’s holiday launch,” says Lee Perrotta, aka The Chocolate Lady, who had her shop across the street from Buckingham’s for about five years before she was forced to shut her doors on Christmas Eve in 2012 due to excessive water damage at the rental space.

The Raise The Roof Concert, held at Christ Church on Nov. 9, was an intergenerational event to benefit the Life Enrichment Center of Oyster Bay’s seniors.

Board member Suzanne Paolucci explained the center’s wish to get iPods for the seniors as a source of musical therapy. She brought the idea to the center from a talk by social worker Dan Cohen, the founder of Music & Memory. He has produced a film, Alive Inside, that tells the story of music as being restorative. Music is like therapy for the elderly, in particular for those with dementia, as it has been shown to awaken memories of happier times in life, when energy and enthusiasm were boundless.


Sports

Long Island Lutheran High School senior Samantha Horton of Oyster Bay signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Siena College and compete on the Girls Division I Lacrosse Team in the goaltender position next year. Samantha will be receiving a full athletic scholarship. Horton is pictured with her family.

On the weekend of Nov. 8, the Oyster Bay High School Boys and Girls Cross Country teams traveled to the State University of New York at Canton just a few miles from the Canadian border to compete in the New York State Cross Country Championships.

Alex Tosi became the first Bayman since Joe Jazwinski and Justin Nakrin (2008) to become All-State, placing 16th with a time of 16:53. Most runners ran about 20 seconds slower than their Bethpage times because of the muddy conditions on the course. Tosi’s time was basically equivalent to his best Bethpage time, as he powered through the toughest parts of the race. He led the Baymen to a seventh place finish in the Class C race, an improvement from their 11th place finish last year, which ties the highest place at the New York State Championships of a Baymen team since 2009.
