Tyler Mitchell ’97 Heads Up West Coast Store

Tyler Mitchell ’97 — grandson of the founder of Mitchells of Westport, and son of uber-Staples soccer supporter Bill Mitchell — has gone into the family business in a big way.

Last fall, when the Mitchell family — owners of Mitchells, Richards and Marshs upscale clothing stores — was deciding whether to buy Wilkes Bashford, a highly regarded but bankrup 2-store Northern California clothier — a key question was who would run them.  Tyler raised his hand.

Last Thanksgiving, he left his beautiful Compo Cove home and headed west.  He now lives in San Francisco, 2 blocks from Wilkes Bashford’s Union Square store, splitting his time between that property and the one in Palo Alto.

Tyler loves his new challenge — and looks forward to having time to explore Northern California.  To read more, click here for yesterday’s “Woog’s World” article on the Mitchell family’s latest acquisition.
