Murphy & Nye returns to the U.S. with a store in Newport, Rhode Island—only appropriate, considering the clothier’s seafaring history. The new location features the company’s full line, including knits, pants, and swim- and outerwear, all of which is suited for sailing (it’s the official clothing sponsor of the America’s Cup). Founded in Chicago as a sail-manufacturer during the depression, Murphy & Nye moved to Italy in 1993. This marks the company’s first stateside retail venture since. We’re happy to welcome the line back, especially for its killer boat shoes, available in high- and low-top versions.
