Tommy Bahama, the iconic menswear known for loose-fitting silks and island-inspired graphics, and Traditions have a few commonalities, and can add one more to the list—our partnership with the Tommy Bahama store in the Mall of America!
Believe it or not, the brand of Tommy Bahama was conceptualized by Minnesota clothing executive Bob Emfield. He took out his yellow legal pad with a colleague, and together created a fictional grey-haired character, discerning everything this type of man would do, wear, eat, shop, etc. Tommy Bahama, the fictitious island guy who never had to go back to work, quickly turned into a $500 million business. With the help of two additional founders, Tommy Bahama opened its first store and restaurant in Naples, Florida! (Hey—we know a thing or two about Minnesota and Naples!)
Next to Ralph Lauren, Tommy Bahama became one of the first modern brands to enter the lifestyle market and be successful at it! Part of the lifestyle collection, which ranges from indoor and outdoor furniture, to rum and bedding can be found at the Mall of America store! While you’re shopping for your island-inspired gear, look no further for some outdoor digs, too! We are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Tommy Bahama clothing store in the Mall of America—any furniture you see in the store or in their catalog can be purchased directly through either of our Minnesota stores!
The Tommy Bahama collections feature unique indoor and outdoor designs, whose casual elegance evokes the essence of what founder Bob Emfield originally set out to do—demonstrate how one would live a comfortable and relaxed life. Tommy Bahama has become widely known for its casual elegance portrayed in a relaxed manner. The Tommy Bahama furniture lines offer custom finishes and unique fabric options, like weather tolerant, Sunbrella! Choose from contemporary, West Indies, modern or classic traditional in durable outdoor materials to complement any space.
