Vineyard Vines was created by brothers Shep & Ian Murray in 1998 who quit their jobs in NYC and retired their suits, and returned to the place of their favorite childhood memories, Martha’s Vineyard, to start their own business. Their quirky, imaginative ties sold out in one week. Vineyard Vines today has spread their whale fin to encompass kids, women’s and men’s clothing, swimwear, flip flops, accessories, and more!

We’re brothers who decided that commuting to New York City wasn’t for us. We grew up in Connecticut and spent every summer of our lives on Martha’s Vineyard, which made us huge fans of the water, fishing and having fun. In the late nineties, we found ourselves miserable behind desks in Manhattan so we decided to trade in our business suits for bathing suits by selling ties so we wouldn’t have to wear them. We delivered our first 800 ties July 3rd, 1998, and sold out in the first week. Today, we’re in opening more stores across the country.
At Vineyard Vines you’ll enjoy clothing, swimwear, flip flops and accessories for baby, boys, girls, women, and men. All items are made with quality fabrics, playful prints, fine construction, and a vast spectrum of colors.
