The Joy of J.McLaughlin
Winter is upon us in New York and most of the country. Now comes the task of trying to look cute while staying warm. One of the best places to find everything from sweaters to sequins and everything in between is J.McLaughlin. If you reside on the Upper East Side or near one of their 90 other stores across the country, you are probably familiar with this classic American sportswear brand for men and women but I’m sure they are going to be new to many of you.
J.McLaughlin was started in 1977 by two brothers, Jay and Kevin, to create a new American sportswear brand that offered classic clothes with current relevance and a retail store with a neighborhood feel. The first J.McLaughlin store was located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side steps away from preppy hang out JG Melon. Today, the brand has stores in cities such as Dallas, Charlotte, Boston, Palo Alto, Palm Beach, Nantucket, Kiawah Island, and Martha’s Vineyard.
True to the Brothers’ vision the stores have a warm residential feeling and exemplary customer service. This coupled with the company’s culture of “being good neighbors,” ensures that J.McLaughlin is a both a welcome and active member of each community in which they are located.
The same signature J.McLaughlin playfulness and attention to detail that appears in the product design as well. Each piece is designed in Greenpoint, Brooklyn and each collection features standout colors and a signature portfolio of prints, which add a unique touch to every product. For holiday cardigans are trimmed in ribbon and martini glasses are hand embroidered on a pair of men’s holiday pants.
You can wear their fair isle sweaters for a weekend in the country and their feathered skirt to a holiday cocktail party. What could be better?! Oh, how about a special discount?! J.McLaughlin is offering Habitually Chic readers 15% off all orders from November 20-27, 2014 with the code JOYOF.
