Talbots began from a singular & personal vision, inspired by a joy of discovery and fueled by a commitment to timeless and timely fashion, extraordinary quality and memorable service.

Talbots Hingham Store

In 1947, Rudy and Nancy Talbot, two passionate and entrepreneurial New Englanders, put an ad in The New Yorker. And what started out as 3000 fliers ultimately became

a catalog with a cult following—treasured for its spirited voice and modern classic product. Soon they moved into a historic Hingham, Massachusetts, house where they painted the front door a welcoming red to signal that here was an oasis of inspiration and hospitality.

Through the decades, Talbots has expanded beyond New England and developed a devoted following of smart shoppers who rely on gracious service, great quality, timeless pieces—and Talbots famous "surprise and delight."

Today Talbots is a dynamic combination of heritage and innovation, translating the original Talbots DNA for today's culture. Our omni-channel expression includes 500 core and outlet stores, throughout the country and Canada, and a growing e-commerce business.
