About Blakley Mitchell Co
If you want a glimpse of the essence of Blakely-Mitchell, the city’s most enduring men’s clothing store, don’t ask the owner. Look at his sport coat.
On its soft exterior, the light khaki, camel hair coat voices the talking points Hugh Testerman emphasizes: fine threads and elegant tailoring.
It is this combo, old-fashioned quality that is increasingly scarce, that adds depth to a phrase Testerman repeats several times in an interview: “There are no stores likes this anymore.”
Scarcity is the force that begat Blakely-Mitchell — the offspring of two State Street clothing stores that merged during the Great Depression. Through the 20th century to the present, the store has grown roots and developed a brand its owners have marketed beyond the region, jockeying for status among the elite clothing stores of metropolitan areas.
Blakely-Mitchell has burnished its reputation by clothing the local business and political elite, from congressmen to candy magnates to NASCAR executives and anyone who won’t settle for a generic-fitting suit.
