If you are not familiar with Nantucket Reds (and we find this almost impossible!) here is a short history: they been introduced to the world in the 1960s by Philip C. Murray. They are made of red canvas fabric that fades over time and resembles the color of the sails that sailed the coast of Brittany and France! The only real Nantucket Reds are the ones made by Murray’s Toggery Shop, and while pants and shorts are the most popular, we have a huge collection that now includes hats, skirts, jackets, shoes and so much more!
