Register: Uncle Pete’s
A Tannery alum funks up Beacon Hill.
Peter Tam wants his debut clothing store, Uncle Peteâ€™s, to feel â€ślike a mom-and-pop shop.â€ť Never mind the soundtrack â€” songs so new even your â€śDJâ€ť cousin hasnâ€™t heard them â€” or the fact that the dĂ©cor resembles a 28-year-oldâ€™s dream loft. Those stylish touches come naturally to the highly approachable Tam, who opened shop on Charles Street after five years as a buyer at the Tannery and Concepts. His inventory includes hard-to-find pieces for women and men by Rogues Gallery and Sea, and boasts Boston exclusives of Nice Collective and Doo Riâ€™s Underligne label. And while Uncle Peteâ€™s may be a departure from Beacon Hillâ€™s antiques stores and cutesy gift shops, Tam says, â€śitâ€™s my job to be laid-back and welcoming enough that the residents will want to be introduced to these brands.â€ť
