A dimly lit room with a leather couch and a flat screen TV welcomes shoppers to browse the selection of menswear at Mobley & Sons.
Originally called The Varsity Store, Reggie Mobley started his family-owned business in Tuscaloosa.
In the late 1970s, the business expanded to the Crestline area. Reggie’s father, CD Mobley, ran the Crestline location until 2005 when CD’s grandson, Hunt Mobley, took over ownership.
“I often joke the store name needs to be changed now to Mobley & Sons & Grandson,” Hunt said.
Hunt was born in Birmingham, grew up in Memphis and returned to The University of Alabama for college. Shortly after graduating with a business degree, he moved back to Birmingham to bring a fresh perspective to his family’s business.
“We’re focused on bringing in a younger demographic,” Hunt said. “We’re not trying to be the most expensive store.”
Mobley & Sons offers a variety of quality men’s clothing, shoes and accessories that fit any lifestyle, from casual and dressy to sportswear. The store carries brands such as Peter Millar, Southwick, Southern Tide, WORN, Jack Victor and Barbour.
Generations of fathers and their sons have shopped at Mobley & Sons to find the right outfit for weddings, graduations and other occasions.
“What sets us apart is our knowledge of what looks good and bringing in the hottest trends,” Hunt said. “We offer a laid back atmosphere for the laid back men who don’t like to shop.”
Mobley & Sons is also adamant about giving top-notch service, quick alteration turnaround and educating each customer who steps foot into the store.
They routinely offer package deals both online and in their store. Each week for Mondays with Mobley, a name is drawn to receive various merchandise.
“I am focused on the future,” Hunt said. “We are really excited about a trunk show with Peter Millar this fall and will also plan some other events for the future,”
