Read the The Kansas City Star’s story about ULAH and other local men’s boutiques.
KCTV5’s Better Kansas City stopped into ULAH to ask about our store concept and the latest trends in men’s fashion. Watch the video here!
If you have one of those of guys to shop for who has everything, consider Filson bags, wallets, or watches. Filson is a legacy brand that has been making top quality leather, wool, and canvas goods since 1897. In fact, they still keep their manufacturing here at home in the United States, and have been creating rugged products with real brass hardware in Seattle since their conception. One of our personal favorites is the 24 Hour Tin Briefcase, which I carry to ULAH every day — packed with my gym shoes and clothes, laptop, and notepads. Stop by ULAH in Woodside Village and see which of the Filson products fits your man’s needs.
Many people may be surprised at the popularity of candles among men. More and more men are buying candles with masculine scents. Early in our development, we wanted to make our own line of masculine candles — so we partnered with local duo Wood + Wick to help create our first evolving line of candles. We named it the Boyhood Collection, inspired by memories that ULAH co-owner Buck Wimberly had as a child. He felt that others would resonate with the memories and scents.
“In my early years, I grew up in the plains of rural West Texas. I remember the baseball games, the classic small-town barbershop experiences, and being fascinated with tumbleweeds. As I grew into my teens while living in the Kansas City area, some of my favorite memories were camping and going on float trips with friends.” – Buck Wimberly
You can find these candles — and many other great holiday gifts for men — in KC’s new men’s apparel and lifestyle store, ULAH, owned by Buck Wimberly and Joey Mendez.
OUTFIELDER – Whether you practiced out in the field, or sat on the bench to watch your friends play — our combination of fresh cut grass and worn leather will stir up memories of America’s most nostalgic sport.
BARBERSHOP – Leather, cardamom, vanilla, and plum will remind you of sitting in the barber’s chair smelling the scent of tonics and pomades as you were getting a fresh clean cut.
TUMBLEWEED – Notes of sandalwood and grass make this scent reminiscent of the dry westerly winds that often blow tumbleweeds across the plains of Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas.
PUP TENT – Pine, clove, and wood smoke notes will take you back to those memorable trips with friends and family — gathering around the campfire and telling stories before you slept the night away in the middle of the woods.
FLOAT TRIP – Patchouli, amber, clove, sandalwood, smoke, saffron, whiskey, and hickory combine to stir up memories of floating down the river for hours with friends before heading back to camp.
Baby, it’s cold outside! Help your guy “Dress For Life” with a sweater from ULAH. Christmas and New Year’s Eve is just around the corner, and winter is here for another couple of months. And let’s face it — for whatever reason — sweaters are usually at the bottom of a guy’s self purchase list. Whether you want a thin v-neck sweater, a thick cable-knit, or a cardigan — ULAH has your man covered.
When thinking about gifts that can make a man happy, consider plants to brighten up his home or to add life to that sterile office space. ULAH’s low maintenance succulents are brought in by local master gardener Janese Reed, owner of Hamadryas. ULAH and Janese collaborate to create their array of masculine potted succulents, hanging staghorn ferns, and unique terrariums.
Looking for great stocking stuffers for guys? Skin care products are a continuously growing trend for men, and this year is no exception. At ULAH, we offer two great skin care lines that will keep a man looking his best without breaking the bank: CONTEXT and Ursa Major.

This holiday season, don’t underestimate the power of tapping into your guy’s love for both music and tech. ULAH — the new men’s apparel and lifestyle store in Woodside Village at 47th and Rainbow — is a retailer for a coveted brand called Master & Dynamic that caters to both music and tech with a beautiful integration of form and function.
Master & Dynamic creates products who share “a focus on great design, luxury materials, amazing craftsmanship, and uncompromising performance, comfort, and sound”. Their products are designed for decades of use with the highest quality materials — and they are getting recognized for it.
Some of ULAH’s favorite features include:
- 16 hour battery life that could take you from New York to Hong Kong without a recharge
- An extra jack (in the right ear) allows someone sitting next to you to plug their headphones into yours. Now you can binge watch those missed shows together on the plane without using one of those annoying splitters!
- Patent pending bluetooth antenna that has 4x the industry standard signal range.
- All alloy metal and genuine leather construction that is designed to last.
Check out these trending gifts for men the next time you stop into ULAH. These tools will help him “focus, inspire, and transport” his mind. Who wouldn’t want that?
Stylish and masculine mobile accessories make great gifts and stocking stuffers for men. At ULAH, we have some great new mobile accessories from a brand called Native Union — whose products look more like pieces of functional art. Their assortment includes cases made of thinly sliced marble, to leather covered battery backup chargers. Tired of that charging cord that’s not quite long enough falling off of the night stand? They have a beautiful and creative solution for that, too!
Stop by ULAH and check them out in person. While you’re here, try a sample of our smokey signature drink created by J. Rieger & Co.
