O’Connell’s is a men’s style destination that personifies the meaning of our “Love Your Mom and Pop Shop” campaign! “Established in 1959 they have been a family owned and operated clothier offering men’s, women’s, and young men’s clothing”. It takes a good strong family to keep a business alive, along with a loyal clientele. The Huber family is blessed to have both.
Influencers in this business set the standard and keep pushing until it’s perfect. Bernhard John Huber, had the vision and creativity to withstand Buffalo’s highs and lows, and never once compromised on style, quality or service. His sons John Huber and Ethan Huber have gracefully introduced e-commerce to the O’Connell’s business model and now sell all over the world. Not bad for this three-story hidden gem located on Main Street in the city’s University District.
Stocking fashion heavyweights like Barbour (for men and women), Alden Shoes, Bills Khakis, Samuelsohn Clothing, Quoddy, Salko Coats, and Marrimekko, O’Connell’s is not only known for their exclusive top-notch men’s and women’s brands, but has a coveted private label collection as well. This custom O’Connell product fills the void, which includes everything you ever wanted and could never find, including that pair of beer and pretzels embroidered trousers you have been dreaming of…
In short, O’Connell’s offers the ‘backbone’ of a traditional wardrobe, fused with a cool contemporary sensibility. A “must” for your “things to do in Buffalo” bucket list, a visit to O’Connell’s will make you feel as if you just went back in time, when retail was a rather refined affair.
