UNTUCKit, a seller of casual apparel for men, women and boys, opens its first North Carolina store Friday, June 15, in Durham's Streets at Southpoint.

The retailer says it was created in 2011 to solve the problem of the long, sloppy look of untucked and ill-fitting dress shirts. Its solution: shirts that are meant to be worn untucked. Since then, the company has added T-shirts, polos, sports jackets and performance wear. In 2017, it debuted lines for women and boys.

"We're thrilled to be opening this 1,700-square-foot store in the heart of Durham and can't wait to bring the ease and comfort of our full apparel line to the community," the company said in an email.

UNTUCKit is on the mall's lower level.

Elsewhere in Streets at Southpoint, a Dads & Grads Makers Market is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 16, at Center Court.

Just in time for Father's Day and high school graduation, the market will offer handmade gifts from a number of vendors, including Triangle Pastry Co., offering sweet and savory pastries and breads; The Flyin' Dandelion, which features both custom apparel and ready-made shirts; Little Redd Sled, known for its fun and expressive home decor signs; Chilean Charm, offering glass jewelry; Asali Desserts; Mutt Stuff, which sells dog collars, flowers and bowties; and Watts Woodworks, offering hand-crafted gifts ranging from cutting boards to pens.

Also on Saturday, Elizabeth & Nichole, which sells women's apparel and accessories, will bring its mobile boutique to Streets at Southpoint. It will be parked outside West Elm.

And coming soon to the shopping mall is Uncle Julio's Mexican From Scratch, part of a chain that has more than 30 restaurants in eight states, including Virginia, Texas and Illinois.

"We serve freshly prepared Mexican recipes with the freshest ingredients, making our mesquite grilled fajitas and border-style Mexican food mouth watering," Uncle Julio's says.
