Rosey Jekes



01. Rosey Jekes, since 1977.


Hanover, New Hampshire has been home to one of America's most interesting and unique independent menswear shops for decades. Rosey Jekes resides on the corner of Lebanon St., occupying the entire building with an excellent selection of vintage furniture and clothing, alongside contemporary collections as well as Rosey's Cafe. Sadly this will be the last season for the iconic shop, which is said to still have a handful of Nigel Cabourn's original Limited Edition pieces. If you have a chance to visit before the end of the year, it would definitely be worthwhile.

I've been told about this shop, shame it has to close.

Also, it's a real shame what's happened to Cabourn.

Kenny, The Owner is probably the nicest and coolest person in the industry. He is a purveyor of good things and good quality from Nigel Cabourn to Transit Uomo. I've been to the store, amazing. Talking to Kenny is probably my favorite things to do while working at the tradeshow, Never sold him anything since my stuff wasn't for his store, but I couldn't care less, the man is an originator and humble as can be.

So, consider this article a call to action for investors.

Yes, you can compete with J.Crew by expanding inventory to cover private label products and lower-cost goods, and provide services that jcrew won't or can't.
