Kuhlman Resurfaces as Scott James

March 7th, 2011
by Allison Kaplan

You just can’t stop Minneapolis resident Scott Kuhlman from making men’s clothes. He made a name for himself in 2006 with simple, fashion forward men’s shirt stores. The chain quickly spread across the country, and just as quickly, crumbled, having over-extended. Kuhlman dusted off his flat front khakis, and started again in 2009 with s.kuhlman. Similar concept: European-styled men’s dress clothes at affordable price points, but a different business model. He opened a store in the Warehouse District…and then we didn’t hear much more. Until now. Kuhlman sold the company to Hampshire Group last May. Because there is another Scott Kuhlman with a clothing store in Seattle (go figure), they decided to rebrand as scott james (Kulhman’s middle name). Kuhlman says the new company is selling to specialty stores in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and soon, overseas.  ”The brand still represents the core I have always stood for: A European aesthetic, with great quality, and a price that is attainable.” Shirts sell for $75-$95. Shop scott james online.
