Dude’s ON FIRE

In case you haven’t noticed, these days Man About Town and Southern Charm fan-favorite Shepard Rose is on fire! Not only has this Lowcountry native and Bravo TV’s most eligible bachelor landed his very own dating show “RelationShep” to be aired on Bravo in the very near future, but his eponymous line of hip, ‘coastal casual’ shirts & hats called ShepGear™ appears to be a huge hit!

Cool and stylish with a certain twist of humor (just like the man himself,) ShepGear is a lifestyle brand that perfectly reflects the laid back island attitude that makes our South Carolina coastline the in place to be.

But… in case you think this has all been just a stroke of luck for the affable Rose, think again. This island boy has earned his stripes! A former Vanderbilt School of Business student & world class traveler whose adventures have taken him everywhere from Austria to Argentina, South Florida to Dubai, Shep has clearly achieved his success by working hard, following his passion, and by keeping the rest of us guessing what he’ll do next!

In fact, if you do ask him what his next move is he’ll straight up tell you he’s not sure what the future holds, and he wouldn’t reveal it even if he did.  “That” he says, “is some valuable information!” We couldn’t agree more!   

One thing’s for sure:  this Man About Town is going to keep chugging along with that trademark smile on his face, spending time with loved ones and keeping a presence in Charleston no matter where life takes him…Why Charleston? Because, as Shep will tell you, “it’s the best place on earth.”
