    Lord & Tailor was one of the great landmark department stores of New York and the oldest department store in the United States. As of August 2019, it had 38 stores nation wide, including the flagship store on Fifth Avenue operated from 1914 until 2019. On August 27, 2020, it was announced that Lord & Taylor would be liquidated.

    Along with B. Altman, Lord & Tailor led the exodus of dry good emporia from farther downtown to the, then, still mostly residential Fifth Avenue of palatial mansions. New York’s other famous department stores – Sloane & Co., Arnold Constable, Best & Co., and Bergdorf Goodman- soon followed suit.

    Lord & Tailor had a reputation for conservatism and tradition. Its Fifth Avenue Christmas windows were a seasonal fixture in the hearts and minds of all New York.

    Lord & Tailor catered to an elite and affluent clientele, and sourced the best quality goods of all the world to purvey to them under its own trademark. The present shoes by Crockett & Jones are such an example and compare favourably to anything on the contemporary market. This is a beautiful example of a timeless model; delicate lines, fine details, elegant proportions, in short, a masterpiece in an old tradition. Fully leather lined and built over a steel shank, the welt is of the closed channel type, as in bespoke shoemaking, a shoe is for the gentleman who desires the unimpeachably authentic and original.

    Lord & Taylor war ein amerikanisches Luxus-Kaufhaus bis etwa Anfang September 2020. Er importierte die feinsten englischen Konfektions-Schuhe und brachte sie unter eigenem Namen heraus. Lord & Taylor haben der New-York-Business-Community für Generationen gedient und haben gleichzeitig eine sehr traditionsverbundene und im besten Sinn “konservative” Serie angeboten.
