A supple cashmere sweater, a sleek jacket worthy of Cary Grant, freshly polished shoes, beautifully bound classics, and an open-air tailoring shop. At the intersection of hip and classic sits the connected men’s and women’s shops Sid Mashburn + Ann Mashburn, and Dallas has just welcomed the fourth location for the Atlanta-based brands right off the Katy Trail.
Just about anything — gray tweed jacket, gingham shirt, tailored jeans, chic ponchos, cashmere scarves, the perfect LBD — can be found inside. When you step into Sid Mashburn + Ann Mashburn, located at 3319 Knox St., don’t be surprised to hear the nostalgic scratch of vinyl between songs; owner Sid Mashburn is a huge music fan.
“Our youngest customer is 11, and our oldest is 87,” Sid says. “When we started, we wanted to build a store where everyone feels comfortable, invited, and kind of cool.”
It’s that philosophy that brought the Mashburns to Dallas, a city that the couple describes as a cultural crossroads, where everyone is welcome.
In addition to the private Sid Mashburn and Ann Mashburn labels, apparel and accessories from Edward Green, Incotex, Levi’s, J. Brand, Aurélie Bidermann, and more line the racks and shelves in the brightly lit shops, which are decorated with kilim rugs, modern furnishings, and antiques curated by the couple. And whether you’re a fashionista with fine taste, or you just want to look polished without spending all day thinking about it, the staff is ready to help you put a complete look together.
“There are people who love fashion and others who just want to get it taken care of,” Ann says. “We can think about all that for you, or you can come in and be delighted by the store if you love fashion.”
The Mashburns are no strangers to fashion: He was a designer for J. Crew, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and Land’s End; she was an assistant at Conde Nast and an editor for both Vogue and Glamour.
There’s even an open-air tailor shop in the store, so shoppers can catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the fashion world, and witness a part of the process behind great dressing.
With such a passion for fashion, Dallas was the obvious choice for the Mashburns’ fourth store. As Sid says, “There’s a sense of freedom, a kind of hopefulness to the whole city that’s intoxicating.”
