Hirshleifers is one of the country's most celebrated specialty stores, a fifth generation owned and operated family enterprise that has served as a destination for the purchase of exclusive European and American couture clothing and accessories for over a century. The shop offers the most select ready-to-wear accessories in rich fabrics, amazing textures and brilliant hues from preeminent designers such as Chanel, Tom Ford, Lanvin, Manolo Blahnik, and Christian Louboutin, to name a few. In early 2011, Oliver Peoples was pleased to join this impressive list as one of the many luxury items offered.
Founded by Jacob Hirshleifer in 1903 as a retail furrier located on Manhattan Avenue in Brooklyn, today’s Hirshleifers still has the Hirshleifer family minding the store. Situated in the award-winning world class Americana Manhasset shopping center on Long Island in New York, which is also home to stores such as Prada, Hermes, Tiffany, Polo Ralph Lauren, Louis Vuitton and Burberry, Hirshleifers is 13,700 square feet, comprised of chicly appointed exclusive shop-in-shops.
Hirshleifers offers a unique selling environment in an elegant, yet comfortable setting, where product knowledge, customer familiarity and attention to detail yield superior customer service. Proud of its philanthropic activities, Hirshleifers supports many local organizations from Project ALS, to Old Westbury Gardens, to the Long Island Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence.
