Vineyard Vines is an American clothing and accessory retailer founded in 1998 in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts by brothers Shep and Ian Murray. The brothers grew up spending every summer on Martha’s Vineyard where they would wait nine months of the year to live the Good Life for those three months on the Vineyard with friends and family. During the summer months, the brothers were in bands, started businesses, and combined the money they made to buy the best old boat they could find, so they could get out on the water, go fishing and escape. In 1998, they quit their jobs and tossed out their conservative business suits for bathing suits to start Vineyard Vines. Their first item would be a new line of ties for "casual Fridays" that offered fabrics with a more colorful, energetic, "Vineyard-inspired" design. Now, twenty years later, the brand has grown across the whole country to offer a lot more than just neckties. Whether it's colorful neckties, comfortably classic blazers and sportshirts or weekend casual and vacation wear, Vineyard Vines offers any and everything one needs to get out there and be inspired every day by the Good Life.
