Deja vu! It was just a few years ago that I met Scott and Susan Kuhlman at the off-the-beating-path Warehouse District office/retail space where the Kuhlman brand got its start – then exploded too quickly and crumbled. Most people would move on to another project. Not the Kuhlmans. Despite losing their shirts – literally – they firmly believe in the need for a straightforward, attainable American brand offering European, fashion-forward tailored clothing. I reported a couple of months ago that they quietly relaunched online. Now, they've quietly opened three stores in New York, Boston and as of this week, Minneapolis at 420 N. Fifth St. in the Ford Center. Same style, slightly higher prices, no grandiose plans of going public. And an added initial. This time, it's s. kuhlman. The store is still getting ramped up for business, but the Kuhlmans aren't the type to wait. Men's woven shirts are currently in stock and the first tailored men's collection is due to hit the racks by the end of October.
