It was at a boarding school near Princeton, New Jersey in 2014 that The Mallard was born. As two best friends sat in their room, continuing to procrastinate on homework that had yet to be done, they found themselves complaining about the lack of authentic, durable, stylish prep wear available in the current marketplace. As the conversation progressed, the roommates found themselves firing ideas back and forth regarding how they could once and for all establish a clothing line known for its lasting quality. And so, Griffin and Wyatt set out on a journey that would face them with more challenges, triumphs, and learning opportunities than they ever could have imagined.
The Mallard, like its founders, has aged and matured in the years since its creation. What started as a purely pastel colored clothing line offering all things preppy, has transformed into a focused and fully developed line of high-quality, timeless pieces. Inspired by Griffin's summers on the beach in East Hampton, The Mallard has produce a refined yet laid back shirt that emulates the summers he so cherished.
Unwilling to sacrifice the high-quality and durability that The Mallard promises, we chose a factory in Massachusetts as the birth place of our new shirt line. Entirely sourced by one of the founders, Griffin, and manufactured by locals, each and every piece of clothing is made not only with the best resources but with hometown care. Watch the video to the right to learn more about the wonderful place that brings Griffin's ideas to fruition.
Griffin is now the sole owner of The Mallard, though he and Wyatt remain best friends. Griffin is entering his junior year at the University of Virginia and is a member of their varsity Lacrosse team.
We are excited for you to put on one of our shirts and become part of our family. The Mallard was created to serve you and to deliver the highest quality, most stylish, and comfortable shirts possible.
