An American Luxury Brand With a Rich Heritage

The Robert Talbott brand was conceived in 1950 when, like many east coast cosmopolites before them, Robert and Audrey Talbott arrived in Carmel, California, seeking the casual elegance of the west coast lifestyle. They brought with them a deep-rooted sense of tradition and value, an appreciation of technique and, perhaps most importantly, an innate understanding of and dedication to quality. They cultivated their craft – meticulously guarding the integrity of the materials and design – elevating the Robert Talbott brand to its position as one of the most distinguished manufacturers of fine clothing and accessories. The story of Robert Talbott is quite literally that of the American Dream, realized.

Expansion of the Classic California Luxury Brand

Over more than a half a century, the Robert Talbott brand grew from its roots as a designer of fine quality neckwear to a beloved brand known for its array of bespoke products for discerning customers. During the mid-1950s, the Talbotts commissioned the finest silk mills in Europe and Asia to produce their original designs. With the introduction of its wholesale offering in the 1960s to America’s finest specialty and department stores, the brand was met with national acclaim and garnered a broader customer following.

Having established a reputation for exceptional world-class neckwear, Robert Talbott dress shirts were then added to great acclaim. This was followed shortly thereafter by men’s sportswear, sweaters and outerwear and the complete Audrey Talbott women’s line of shirts, shearling and leather outerwear and accessories. The brand complemented its offerings with a unique made-to measure tailored clothing program, representing an entirely natural extension of its established – and thoroughly distinguished – tradition of fine, custom-made shirts and neckwear. A buyer of the brand has the opportunity to expand the brand’s offerings and to license it across various categories.
