Since 1826, Lord & Taylor has built a reputation for service, for quality, and most of all, for style. By creating a unique mix of the latest trends and the timeless classics, they have become the favorite store of generations of shoppers. Lord & Taylor is not only at the forefront in fashion but we’ve also set significant trends in the retailing industry. We were the first retailer with the vision to move to Fifth Avenue – and the first to install an elevator. We were also the first to open a branch store, the first to develop the concept of offering personal shopping services and the first to create Christmas windows for pure delight rather than selling merchandise, a tradition that continues today. And, perhaps our most significant first is that Lord & Taylor was the first store to have a woman as president. Dorothy Shaver was a visionary who made an impact on the emerging American fashion industry by showcasing the work of the American designers who truly shaped American style. Claire McCardle, Bonnie Cashin, Norell, Pauline Trigere, Luis Estevez and Vera Maxwell all made their debut in our Fifth Avenue windows.

Humor is Human: I Hat the Yankees

I wish that I owned more baseball hats than the ones I have in my current rotation. The overall picture is not terribly dire since I have my ace, a number two starter, the bush leaguer, a setup man, and a closer. Sadly, the side used to have more depth, but its...
