NEW CANAAN, Conn. — Shoppers looking for preppy clothing now have a new spot to check out in New Canaan as Vineyard Vines recently opened its doors.
Vineyard Vines was started by Greenwich brothers Shep and Ian Murray, when the two decided to quit their desk jobs in Manhattan to sell ties in 1998, the company website said. The brand has since expanded into more clothing and accessories and in 2005 opened up offices in Stamford as well as the first store on Martha’s Vineyard.
The New Canaan location is the third in the state with the other two in Westport and Greenwich. There are more than 20 across the nation. Vineyard Vines merchandise is also found in other retail stores.
