The Denim Jacket—This stylish pair found love at work when they were both at GSD&M where Sarah is a new business manager (Alex has since joined Preacher as an Art Director). Elizabeth Street Cafe is their go-to date spot. She says: “Being creative folk, you can’t beat the combo of gorgeous branding along with amazing food, atmosphere, coffee, cocktails and hello—macaroons!”

The Blazer—Matt, the principal architect of his own firm MF Architecture and a professor at UT, and Erica Rae, a master stylist at ROAR Salon, met at a Fusebox event at the State Theater. Now, dating for six months, you can usually find the couple running together on the trail or catching a screening at the Alamo Drafthouse.

The Chambray Shirt—Five years ago, Duane’s band was playing a show in Dallas, and Abbi was working behind the bar. They met and have been inseparable ever since. Now, they have a two-year old daughter, Estella Maple, and their own line of kimchi (Oh Kimchi). Their most romantic date? “Duane surprised me last year with a sunset picnic in Zilker Park on Valentine’s Day,” Abbi says. “He had a friend prepare an awesome vegan dinner and secretly set it up. It was a huge surprise and so thoughtful!”

The Striped Tee—These college sweethearts and parents to three kids met at Baylor and when they aren’t hard at work on their businesses (Ty is a dentist and Sam owns Cultivate PR), the Davidsons head to Uchiko or Hopfields for a date night.
