Ike Behar opened its first store in Charleston, S.C. in December 2012. A Chicago store followed in July 2013.

“It’s really exciting,” added Ike Behar, founder of the company. “We’ve always had a very large and loyal group of customers and fans, and it’s really tremendous that we’re now able to provide them with a more comprehensive experience with our brand and our products.”

The Miami-based company was founded in the 1950s when Cuban-born Ike Behar bought a small New York City tailor shop he’d been working at. Ike Behar is run by Ike’s three sons, Steven, Alan and Lawrence, and is now a full lifestyle brand across multiple categories.
