Listen up, fellas — it's okay if you've developed a split style personality over the years. One day, you're a skater kid; the next, a rugged, Bon Iver-digging fan of vintage threads. Local guy-in-the-know Greg Grammen, owner of streetwear mecca Palace 5ive, knows what it's like to be on both sides of the fence, and that's why he changed up his retail game over the weekend.He opened the doors to Federal, a new heritage-focused menswear shop that stocks woven Pendleton blankets and trapper hats alongside more raw denim than you can shake a hand-whittled stick at. Fans of Palace 5ive, don't fret — all those rad sneakers and candy-colored decks are still just right next door. Want the full scoop on Federal?
