While traveling through Europe, specialty shops that only sold shirts caught Scott Kuhlman’s eye. Inspired by the concept, Kuhlman and his wife Susan opened their first clothing store in Minneapolis in 2003. The Manhattan store offers simply displayed European-style tailored wool suits; plush cashmere sweaters and woven, button-down dress shirts for both genders. All pieces are manufactured for the company in Turkey and Italy. Set prices mean no discounts or sales, but shirts retail for what you might pay at French Connection (a half to a third of the price of anything from Pink) and suits top out at around $500. For the executives and office workers who drop in during lunch breaks, thick neutral carpets and muted, chocolaty walls provide a rich setting to showcase the store’s main course: crisp, candy-colored shirts in solids, patterns, and stripes paired with a rainbow assortment of scarves, knotted cufflinks, and fabulously audacious printed-silk ties.
