Greetings from 18th Street. We built our 11,000 square foot flagship a couple of years ago, on a side street, while the economy was somewhat uncertain. When we weighed our options, we decided to “go big or go home” and we pressed ahead. Fast forward two years, we are certain that it was the right move. However, that does not make us comfortable. It is just not our nature. We never want to disappoint, and the new store gives us an opportunity to re-evaluate and refine everything we do. We strive to make our stores inspiring and functional at the same time. As part of the process, we continually cull our suppliers down to those who provide the right menswear with the best price/ value relationship, and then we choose the best of what they have to offer. It is an ongoing and arduous process, but one that we enjoy. It is nice that so many of you give us feedback (our email addresses are below, as usual) so that we can continually work to give you the best experience at Rothmans. It is also nice when outsiders notice what we are doing. We are thrilled to report that our Scarsdale store was just named “Best Men’s Boutique 2014” by Westchester Magazine. In the same week, MR Magazine, the leading trade publication of the menswear industry, named us as winner of the “Readers Choice – Best Store in the United States.” We are humbled by these awards, and give special thanks to our associates and leaders, specifically Kenny La Barbera, Jennifer O’Dean and Mark Rubinstein. We hope that you have been in the store to visit us lately. If not, come see for yourself our ever changing slate of designers and manufacturers. Of course, to keep it interesting, we often have a Pop-Up Shop in-house from an emerging brand that catches our eye. We assure you that each time that you visit, the store will be different. Thanks for taking a look at our 11th issue of Rothmans Magazine. We built this new store in NYC, and we renovated our Scarsdale store in the past year, but we are well aware that our most valued asset is still you, our friends and customers. This magazine has been our way to celebrate this bond, as we are able to find fascinating, amusing and inspiring stories written by and about our clients. In this issue, we are happy to bring you an interview with NYC real estate powerhouse Paul Massey, an inspirational NYC entrepreneur. Also, we have our farflung foreign correspondent and menswear blogger Kristina-Marie Ross, reporting on retail in Edinburgh, Scotland. We also get an inside look at one of our favorite spots, The Old Town Bar, from the world’s best bartender, Patrick Lydon. There is plenty more inside about fashion and NYC, so please take a look. On an ongoing basis, follow us on Instagram or Twitter (@rothmansnyc) and our Facebook Page. All of these are updated frequently with events, sales and news. Please keep an eye out for our new website coming in September, which will feature an e-commerce component. To be added to our email list, simply drop us a note at info@rothmansny.com. We hope that you enjoy the Magazine. If not, at least find the page with the coupons! With appreciation, Jim and Ken Giddon Jim@rothmansny.com Ken@rothmansny.com
