From their storefront in the heart of Main Street, Jim and Amy D’Alessio dress the men and women of Essex, Connecticut for work, weddings, wine tastings, and everything in between.
Retail can be a tough business, but J. Alden Clothiers long ago cemented its status as a local institution.
“Other stores come and go, but J. Alden carries on in fine style,” said one loyal customer.
His kids know their father is a powerhouse instructor and can be a formidable boss, but at the end of the day he’s not Randy Smith, PGA Hall of Famer at home. He’s still the same guy who gave them a place to grow up at Royal Oaks and zipped to their activities in a club golf cart.
We're big fans of the men and women who run the specialty stores that carry Turtleson apparel.
After all, those shopkeepers are the ones taking care of customers in person, making sure they look and feel amazing in their clothes every day.
And guess what? Despite what you may have heard, the internet hasn't wiped out the joy of face-to-face shopping, and men still care about the way they look.

In the summer of 1981, a young Greg Oakley heard a faint rustling in the woods. He followed the sound and discovered an old box turtle clutching a worn, yellowed piece of paper in its mouth.

Is the popover the most versatile shirt you’ll ever own?
Menswear expert Robert Blanton thinks so.
With a decade of experience dressing clients at Wm. King Clothiers, Robert says their custom popovers, as well as those from Polo Ralph Lauren, Sid Mashburn, and Turtleson are perennial best sellers.
“The popover is the most versatile shirt we do,” he said. “The shirt itself adds a bit of flair if you’re wearing it with a sport coat and no tie.”
“It gives you something you might find a little more interesting than a full-placket dress shirt.”
“But we love a popover because you can also dress it down so easily,” he said. “It’s so versatile.”
