The Alexander brothers combine to make an atmosphere that is warm and inviting. Patrick, the younger, has a fine eye for bow ties and socks. While Andrew, the older, not much of a scholar, delves himself into the wonders of the finer things such as "lodge lemonade" and McClavy family politics. I would not trust John Woodard with a tape measure, but by damn, he could sell me snow in Alaska. Frank's veteran knowledge from Nam really brings the place alive on camo day, and his old man remarks are sure to brighten anyone's day. I do not shop anywhere else.

Very cool, non-box-store, non-mall old school skate shop!!! Just purchased two pair of shoes there yesterday that ROCK! Comfortable and unique in my circle's (I'm pretty conservative), Vox slip-ons and a pair of lace-ups (similar to but far superior to Vans as they have Gel cushioned soles)...

Give this place a chance before you look elsewhere, because there may be no need to. It's located on Government street two or three doors to the right of Baton Rouge High.

Yes I know the owner because our girlfriends own another business together but that has nothing to do with how impressed I was with the place or this post. I was genuinely impressed!!

p.s. There is a half-pipe inside for those of you who know how to skate...

The system is a lot of fun to use and fairly simple. Children and adults sit together and ring to the music - we have a great time!

One warning - the leader must not only be able to count the beats of the music, they must be coordinated enough to flip the cards. My husband plays jazz trumpet and holds a master's degree in music composition, but flipping the cards is challenging for him!

Ordering is also unnecessarily difficult - you can't order online, you have to print off a form and mail it in with a check. This means you have to plan well in advance until you have enough songs on hand to rotate.

Since living in Baton Rouge McLavy's is the only place I go to when looking for clothes. They have everything from bowties, to suits, to belts, and even fishing shirts. They are the ONLY retailer of Southern Proper wear in the state of Lousiana and that in itself is a reason to shop there. Mr. Frank knows how to run a business, he gives free tailoring for all the clothes you purchase there and will even offer you a cocktail or two. This is one of the last great privately owned places that people can shop in Baton Rouge. It won't dissapoint you.

I visited McLavy ltd in Aug, 2008 to look at suits and slacks. My first impression was I had felt I had been there before - relaxed atmosphere, great theme of the "sportsman pardise," and everyone was very courteous and friendly. James, the son-in-law of Frank McLavy, helped me with everything and I was superbly happy with his knowledge, fitting advice, and putting together pieces I could wear with style. I will definitely come back and I highly recommend anyone to visit and shop with James and Frank at McLavy Ltd.

The owner of this store is one of the rudist people I have ever spoken to. He was very unhelpful and impatient. I will never step foot in this store again.
