Family Britches moves

NEW CANAAN — After more than 40 years on Elm Street in New Canaan, Family Britches has moved around the corner to 99 Main St. At its new location, Family Britches will focus exclusively on fine menswear. Family Britches in Chappaqua, N.Y., continues to offer clothing for men, women and boys.

New Canaan store manager Mark Gust said, “Family Britches has been part of the fabric of Fairfield County for more than four decades. We’ve built a loyal following and we’re pleased to continue to offer our customers the level of quality and service they’ve come to expect from us.”

Family Britches is moving into the store that had been occupied by Candy Nichols, situated between Garelick & Herbs and The Toy Chest on Main Street. Gust said, “We’re putting greater focus on the lines our customers want most, such as Canali suits and sport coats, and highlighting new brands of fine men’s sportswear. We’ve already had a great deal of positive feedback from our customers, who have been coming in to check out the new store. It’s an exciting time.”
