“Born in Ireland, Woven in Italy and Made in Sunny California.”
Audrey McLoghlin created the classic shirting label Frank & Eileen in the early 2000s, focusing on woven fabric and intertwining a love story inspired by her Irish heritage. The label now carries a cult status, delivering the ultimate chic, classic shirt.
“I met my dear Eilleen in a place far from home. Jobs were scarce in Ireland in the 40’s and I had to travel a long way to find work. She was the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen – full of life, with a twinkle in her eye. I, on the other hand, was very shy. But Eileen was more than I had ever hoped for, so I built up the courage to talk to her. Eileen didn’t make it easier telling me she had planned never to marry. But I didn’t give up, 6 months later, pulling courage up from my very boots, I finally asked her father for her hand. Eileen and I were married in 1947.”
