In this weeks 'Eye On Style', Yesterday's Island acknowledges the influence of Reds since 1945!

For the original article read here

While the retail scene in downtown Nantucket seems to change from year to year, Murray’s Toggery Shop has been a Main Street fixture for the past sixty-eight years and has become a Nantucket institution. Established in  1945, Murray’s has been keeping the whole family well dressed year-round, offering a department store feel with a friendly, small town approach.  Family owned and operated, nothing says Nantucket style quite like Murray’s Toggery Shop.

Murray’s carries clothes, shoes, outerwear, toiletries, and accessories for men, women, and children, so it’s a one-stop shop for the entire family. They have well-known brand name items you would find in larger stores off island, as well as their own brand of famous original Nantucket Reds.

Murray’s began selling the brick red sailcloth pants back in the 1940’s, and with regular wear and washing they fade to the recognizable soft pinkish shade people associate with Nantucket Redsm.  Their line has grown over the years, and now includes a full selection of clothing, bags, luggage, shoes, and accessories for men, women, children, and even your furry friend!

Murray’s Toggery is open year-round at 62 Main Street, with their hours varying depending on the season.  You can also shop online,

Having been a Murray’s customer for many years I think a Reds sweater vest would sell nicely and be a welcome addition to your Reds collection. Just a thought.

We have some exciting news here atMurray’s Toggery Shop, home of the originalNantucket Reds Collection! We started a major renovation this winter to transform our Ladies' and Children's department. While it’s true that nowadays people like to shop online, it doesn’t mean that brick-and-mortar stores are completely out-of-style. We still get a high volume of customers, not only in the summer, but also in the off-season, and we decided that this is a perfect year to give our customers better in-store shopping experience, as we celebrate our 75th anniversary!
