Designed to resemble an English style pub, the exterior of Anchor & Compass is richly paneled in navy and invites you in to figure out just what “A Store For Guys” is all about. Once inside, the original maple flooring, wood displays, and maritime light fixtures tell you this is a place to just sort of hang out.
Tunes by Johnny Cash, The Beach Boys, Dave Matthews, Otis Redding, and Pearl Jam give the store a relaxed vibe. Hit us on the right day, and you’ll find a bucket of beer (and root beer) on ice to quench your thirst.
Anchor & Compass is not your typical men’s shop; no suits and ties here. This is a no frills, casual and comfortable store, built for the average guy and for every guy. As you browse the cozy shop, you’ll find quality clothing from world class brands like Woolrich, Carhartt and Tommy Bahama alongside great accessories and unique gifts.

A hands-down, shop favorite.
