Boyds Philadelphia – World Renowned Local Clothier Featuring UK Fashion and Flair

Boyds, an iconic Philadelphia Clothier, and the newest British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia Club Level member, offers the best designer fashion, shoes and accessories for men and women, with impeccable service. The founder of Boyds Philadelphia, Alec Gushner, emigrated from Russia in 1936. He opened his first store, selling “big & tall” men’s suits and sport coats more than 70 years ago in the heart of Philadelphia’s flourishing clothing retail sector on 5th and Market Streets. At the time, the majority of Philadelphia’s social elite would be spotted almost nightly at the Boyds Theater across town. Ever savvy Gushner strategically positioned his business to be associated with the upscale clientele of the famed venue, naming it “Boyds Philadelphia.” In the 1990s, the store moved uptown to the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood, one of the most exclusive parts of Center City, Philadelphia. Seasoned international business executives and new to the professional scene hipsters alike can find something original for the season, update a wardrobe, or obtain the perfect outfit for that special occasion, all under one beautiful roof.
