Yuks by Yuketen SS20 Collection

This season we’re stoked to introduce two classic styles from Yuks.

Wallace is a moodboard for all the things that we love, enjoy,
and are inspired by. We thrive off the things that inspire us, and the desire to express that inspiration. Every brand and piece of apparel at Wallace is chosen because it connects with us in some way, and we want to share that with you.

We want people to see that they can be and dress in a way that is unconstrained by judgment or what is deemed to be “the norm.” Inspiration is not stagnant or set in stone. It changes, evolves, and moves with the ebbs and flows of our lives. So does our store.

We are constantly updating our stock to be in line with that which inspires us. Wallace Mercantile is all about the
things that inspire us.
