2 days ago
Rick Hindin is an entrepreneur. He co-founded Britches of Georgetowne and brought a new clothier and shopping experience to those in Our Town looking for higher end products as well as something new and special. Shortly after Britches was sold, he moved onto Adworks and grew its business hand over fist. Hindin also had a hand in Chicken Out which did so well that its competitor Boston Market moved from its location whenever Chicken Out moved close by. Hindin has gathered some of Britches alum to revive the popular clothier. In addition to Britches of Georgetowne, Britches Bespoke will open in New York to offer custom clothing. Online services will be available as well at some point. In addition to stories about Britches beginnings 50 years ago, you’ll hear about its revival here.
