Feature Friday – Eljo’s

eljo'sToday’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Virginia: Eljo’s. Brothers Elliot and Joseph Hyman opened the store in 1950 near the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Ell and Joe ran the shop for more than three decades before selling the business to Myles Thurston, one of their longtime employees. Myles now operates the store with his son, Trent. Eljo’s carries casual and dress menswear, including a wide variety of UVA-themed clothing and accessories.

Charlottesville has been home to two U.S. presidents – Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe. The city, which has a rich arts and music culture, was the launching pad for Grammy-award-winning Dave Matthews Band. (image credit)
