1986. Three renegades of retail opened a small shop on the backside of Specialty Shops on the Park in Charlotte. Based on the idea that the world offered more innovative styles of dress than those being offered by local haberdasheries, Glen Taylor, Richard Pattison and Lyn Conger set out to revolutionize the menswear business in Charlotte.

Expanding the brand

It's understandable that Taylor Richards & Conger has changed quite a bit these past 30 years, but in some respects it remains the same.  Take a look at our staff (belowand you'll see many of the same faces you've come to know over these many years.  The TRC philosophy that a successful enterprise should consistently create a positive customer experience for men and women is the same as it was in 1986.  And to that end, TRC W, our shop for women, was added in 2005.

Looking ahead

Our shop's featured collections will continue to evolve as they find their place among the other brands we offer. Some will grow into major players while others settle in as small but important components of the whole. The one unchangeable feature you will consistently find, is Taylor Richards & Conger's steadfast adherence to the belief that our customers deserve the best of the best when it comes to style & fit. We invite you to continue the journey with us.
