Special Milestone at Hartford's Heart of Fine Clothing, Stackpole Moore Tryon
(page 2 of 2)
When it comes to men’s clothing, Ron Morneault says, “Here we are in the 21st Century and Stackpole is reinventing every day to help men and women interested in quality clothing to find their personal style.”
Evidence of that is felt immediately upon entering the store, and the label SAND Copenhagen is just one example of a high-energy, contemporary and couture-leaning style that provides contrast to the Hickey Freeman suits and classics from Robert Talbott.
Amid the mini event to honor Carusone, the gathering was anchored in the men’s department, but Stackpole—through Jody Morneault’s expert eye—is a treasure for women as well. Here, too, the blend of classic and timeless designs and labels with more adventuresome younger looks is done seamlessly. Any woman with a misplaced fear of finding Stackpole’s lines skewing to an older demographic need only to take a peek at the styles and lifestyle messages embodied on the websites of labels Morneault has sourced like Agave Denim and Gerry Weber.
In terms of reconnecting with Stackpole, or discovering it, now is the perfect time. Through this Saturday, Oct. 19, the store is offering customers “the opportunity to do something positive for the community while saving on purchases at SMTT!”
“We’re partnering with the Junior League of Hartford, an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, to bring you our Junior League Trade-In Event,” Stackpole’s blog explains. “Bring your used clothing to our collection point in our store, and you’ll not only receive a tax write off for your donation, but you’ll also get 15% off your purchase of new clothing at SMTT!”
Beyond that, it would seem from Wednesday’s event that there’s a likelihood you’ll get started on joining the ranks of Carusone—and others like him—and become not only a longtime customer but, essentially, a member of the Stackpole family.
It’s something summed up nicely online by Tracy Murphy, who says, “I’ve been in the business of dressing men here at Stackpole’s & Tuesday’s for 20 years. I’ve learned a lot and have some of the best customers, many I consider my friends. I am most fulfilled when I know my outfits are being worn all over the world. I’m proud of what I do and it’s an honor to work at such a great establishment.”
The store’s address is 242 Trumbull St. in downtown Hartford, and Stackpole offers free two-hour parking, asking customers to bring in a parking ticket for validation. The hours, all of the store’s brands, and other essential information is on the website.
