Thomas Pink, a swanky clothing retailer based in the United Kingdom, has set its sights on Scottsdale.
Michael Bragg, a Thomas Pink spokesman, said the company is interested in Scottsdale, “but that’s all I know at the moment.”
Bragg wouldn’t discuss specifics and said he didn’t know when officials would make a decision on the matter.
Thomas Pink sells formal and office attire for men and women, including shirts, ties, cuff links, and footwear, among other things.
Men’s dress shirts range between $60 and $210, while neckties range between $40 and $180.
The company, which claims several celebrity customers including actor Hugh Grant and former President Bill Clinton, has only 13 stores in the United States, among them in Los Angeles, New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., and Las Vegas.
Its stores also span the globe from Asia to Europe.
It’s owned by LVMH, a French group that features such internationally recognizable retail brands as Louis Vuitton, Donna Karan and Fendi.
Officials with Westcor, which owns many of the Valley’s malls and major shopping centers including the posh Scottsdale Fashion Square, wouldn’t say if they were in discussions with LVMH about opening a Thomas Pink store at one of their properties. Officials with the company developing One Scottsdale, a high-end shopping center under way at Loop 101 and Scottsdale Road, said the firm doesn’t disclose information regarding potential retailers. One Scottsdale is a 120-acre project that will include retail, hotels, offices and residential space.
