J. Peterman Announces Agreement With The Smithsonian

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON, D.C./ BLUE ASH, OH (LEX 18) —  Lexington's famous retailer J. Peterman has announced an agreement with the Smithsonian Museum in Washington. 

Through this endeavor, the company will be offering apparel inspired by the rich historical resources found only in the Smithsonian's archives and libraries.

With over a half million square feet of archival space and over 10 million digital records on our nation’s history and other subjects, the Smithsonian should provide inspiration for the company's designers. The company has drawn inspiration from history before with clothing lines inspired by different eras.

J. Peterman was founded by its eponymous founder in Lexington. It's most well known for being lampooned on Seinfeld. The real-life J. Peterman is trying to set himself apart from the character that's based on him in Seinfeld.

"That's not what we do. The fact that you remember puffy sleeves is interesting to me, I never doubted it, I kind of knew that. And that's kind of what we're doing now is trying to get away from any reference to that," said Peterman in an interview with LEX 18. "We're not in the fashion business, we're in the anti-fashion business. If it's fashion today, I don't really want it in my book."
