We're two classmates from Brown University who met on a trip to Brazil, descovered that we had common interests in music and fashion, and quickly became friends. After Brown, we both took jobs on wall street- a valuable learning experience with miserable hours that wasn't particularly fun.

Four years into our jobs, we realized we needed a creative outlet that the world of fianance could never provide. So, we conceptualized a men's apparel brand during a long conversation that stemmed from a mutual desire to do something innovative and entrepreneurial.

This brand would initially be focused on elavating the quality and fit of a wardrobe staple - the sport shirt - while also keeping the price point reasonable. After establishing manufacturing, relationships, experimenting with samples and conducting a successful sales event, we left our finance careers to focus on building our company, Jack Robie.

The name Jack Robie pays homage to a fictitious, impeccable-dressed American man portrayed by one of our style idols, Cary Grant, in the 50's film "To Catch a Thief." Jack Robie emobodies American cool and charisma with a sense of style that is classic and sophisticated.
