(Updated at 7:35 p.m.) A men’s clothing store that specializes in slim-fit dress shirts is moving to Navy Yard.
The company Hugh & Crye will open a shop at The Yards next month, management of the Water Street SE development announced this afternoon.
Hugh & Crye, whose name is a reference to medieval England, tweeted a photo of their empty new location, in which The Yards advertising is papered over the windows.
The menswear company started in Dec. 2009 sells shirts that take into account buyers’ height and build, and start at $75 each. Their website breaks down their offerings into “Shirts for Skinny Guys,” “Shirts for Slim Guys,” “Shirts for Athletic Guys” and “Shirts for Broad Guys.” They operate another store at O Street and Wisconsin Avenue NW in Georgetown.
