The first J.McLaughlin, located in an Ivy League enclave on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, was a well-bred kind of place with a welcoming, faded-paint, cozy chair feel. Today, with over 100 stores and a thriving e-commerce business, J.McLaughlin celebrates their continued success as uber-classic American clothiers and one of the country’s last great first-name-basis retailers.
Resonating with a traditional yet discerning client, the J.McLaughlin look can be described as innovatively nostalgic. The fashion impact is two-fold: world-class quality silks, sporty cottons and cashmeres alongside tongue-in-chic martini-glass embroidered Bermudas, feather minis and statement-making hybrid prints like “Trellis Flora” and “Zebra Chain Link”. The print of a best-selling shawl reverses from Equestrian to cheetah. Superior design, but never a dull moment.
