Murray’s Toggery Shop
62 Main Street
Since the 1960s, Murray’s Toggery Shop has been the hub of the quintessential Nantucket red pants and shorts. The store has since expanded the fabric to be featured on bowties, sunhats, and an array of other accessories (they have gotten pretty creative, and it’s fun to see what they do). Other brands have adopted the recognizable faded red color, but it all started at Murray’s Toggery. If you want authentic, it’s here. In addition to its vast selection of Nantucket red items, the store also carries shirts, ties, and pocket squares of every color. For those of you who know a lot of people with summer birthdays, their needlepoint flasks or key fobs make the perfect gift! Be sure to check out the great selection of belts as well.
