Designer Joseph Abboud and Men’s Wearhouse have launched an e-commerce site for the Joseph Abboud brand. The site, JosephAbboud.com, features 200 pieces of limited edition tailored clothing, furnishings, outerwear and sportswear not sold at Men’s Wearhouse. Abboud will also write a style blog for the site.
Men’s Wearhouse also said that it plans to open its first standalone Joseph Abboud brick-and-mortar store in early 2015.
“This exclusive offering is more innovative in its choice of fabrics, color palettes and finishing details giving it a sartorial edge,” the designer said in a statement. “This collection is my expression of the new American man…a true style evolution.”
Suits retail for $695 to $895, sport jackets for $295 to $495, shirts for $95 to $150, knitwear for $125 up to $295 and neckwear for $95.
Designer Joseph Abboud joined Men’s Wearhouse as chief creative director in December 2012. He was reunited with his namesake brand when Men’s Wearhouse acquired it from J.W. Childs in July 2013 for $97.5 million in cash. The brand became exclusive to Men’s Wearhouse upon the acquisition.
