At the Andover Shop you will find various weights of cashmere, lambswool and Shetland tweed jackets woven exclusively to our specific style, pattern and colorings and are only found at our three locations – Andover, Boston, and Cambridge.
As the result of fifty-three years of retail knowledge, our three shops require slightly modified marketing levels due to the particular local geographic taste, either an urban character (Boston and Cambridge) or a more country or natural market environment as in our Andover store. If a particular item is not available at one of our stores, it is only a phone call or twenty-four hours away.
Our most active in-store department (a garment completely hand constructed in store) or made-to-your-measure service (alterations made in the cutting of the garment from pattern) can duplicate your favorite piece of clothing or accommodate your exact measurements and styling.
This past year, in addition to Scotland and Ireland, we have also traveled to Inis Meain, one of the Aran Islands located thirty miles off the west coast of Ireland. We were intrigued by the sweaters produced there – a distinct change from the traditional handknits which in the past have used only heavy and oily yarns. These new sweaters, for both men and women, use yarns in the softest alpaca and merino wool, silk, linen, and cashmere. These sweaters were inspired by and reflect the tastefully subdued colors of the island and cater to the ultimate sophisticated international tastes. Selections of these sweaters are shown on our website.
