The reasons that we’re here...
Nicole R. Brown, the Chief Creator of Ruth Nathan’s, is a “youngish” black female who has a passionate love affair with all things gentlemanly, stately, swanky and dandy. Her odd fascination with a well dressed man propels her passion for creating this brand. It kind of makes her the “odd man out” in a world of mostly male designers, but she likes that about herself. It’s just great to see man in an outfit that is well put together, that makes him walk around with pride. Like a peacock. An Urban Peacock to be more exact.
What’s in a name?
Ruth and Nathan are Nicole’s maternal grandparents from Greenville, Mississippi. Grandpa Nathan was a tailor and this brand pays homage to those roots. Nathan was quite the dapper gentleman and his wardrobe was out shined only by his faith and character.
