Our Roots

A grapevine wrapping the stalwart handle on Shaia’s front door serves as a reminder of the Lebanese immigrant who first set up shop here and lived next-door tending his business and his gardens. Four generations later, this family-owned establishment has evolved from dry goods and notions into a premier men’s clothing store that has been recognized by Esquire Magazine as Best of Class 12 consecutive years. The key to Shaia’s longevity and success is rooted in founder S.G. Shaia’s values: affectionately tending to his customers the way he tended his gardens, dispensing the kind of personal attention and knowing guidance that transforms clients into friends and occasional shoppers into devoted fans.
