Robert Talbott was founded by Robert and Audrey Talbott in the 1950s. As a hobby, Audrey created bowties for Robert and his friends. With her skill and Robert’s dream to manufacture a true quality product, the company, Robert Talbott was born. By 1955, the business was a success and they were travelling the world for silk. Dress shirts were added to the Robert Talbott line in 1990, which had been exclusively ties up until this point. Casual shirts and outerwear followed. Today, Audrey Talbott has shifted her focus to high quality ladies wear and her eponymous line is featured at many boutiques throughout the country.
