Eileen Fisher designs simple, comfortable clothing that works together....from season to season and from year to year. All the pieces connect. The fabrics and quality are consistant. The designs work with the body.
Drama is another designer with an adequate rise and clean lines and like Eileen Fisher the designs work with the body.
Isda is another favorite of mine, with a zest and punch in design, but still holding true to a fit that compliment a woman's body.
Oh Margaret O'Leary....I agree beautiful knits in merino and cashmere but also in the collection are sweaters in model. Model is a microfiber which has a soft hand and is perfect for those who prefer not to wear wool.
At sixty one, my wardrobe consists of these designers. They cross the generation gap. I have sold these lines for years and the fit, the designs and quality have been consistant. I have seen many people with different body types and age groups, from daughters to great grandmothers try on and enjoy the mentioned designers. As a matter of fact, Eileen Fisher's target market is thirty-five and up!
I also have had alot of fun with Babette. Some of the designs are a tad repetative, but I have noticed changes with this designer and would like to see whats new because I think she hangs with all of the above.
A little off track from the concept LV posted, but I have been waiting to expound to a larger audience!


thank you so much for this! i thought it a HUGE long shot to google "like eileen fisher" but this is EXACTLY what i was looking for.

Spot on with this write-up, I honestly think this amazing site needs a great deal more attention. I'll probably be back again to read through more, thanks for the info!


I'm sorry to disagree, but I see Eileen Fisher clothes on 80 year old women who look like they've given up caring how they look. Shapeless and look like a big tent. I don't want to look like that.

Worse still, the clothes are primarily grey, black, beige, and colors that are not attractive. I see old women wearing them with big clunky jewelry and it just looks awful. It looks as if the person has given up caring what they look like.


I am sad to say that I must agree with what the person below commented

EF clothes are for women who have given up hope another live human will ever see them naked again in a sexual situation.

Check out www.fathat.com I'm a clothing designer/manufacturer (37 years in the business), making mainly monochromatic clothing and some fun stripes all made in the u.s.a...on purpose! . Customers come to me when they refuse to buy one more piece of oversized, shapeless clothing... when they're looking for quality, great fit and soft wonderful fabrics. You can find us in Quechee, Vermont where our large retail/studio store is, online (where you can read all about us) or in one of the 300 small boutiques we sell to around the country.

Re: Eileen Fisher line. I am 70 years old and have been wearing this line since my 50's. I think if they are properly sized, and we are meticulous regarding our personal care and make up, this style is lovely. To be blunt, I am shaped like Sponge Bob Square Pants, so no I don't like to wear fitted clothing (it is not a weight issue). The fact that some ladies have poor taste in matching scale of jewelry with Fisher's style is going to happen. And, no I don't believe I'll make it to Vermont any time soon.


Simple design, quiet color palette, no ornamentation, clean lines, comfortable fits, high quality materials.

These characteristics flourish in the East. The West (mainly Americans) view all of those things as...for those 50+?

I'm in my 20s, I wear EF once a week. Mixed with a healthy dose of Phillip Lim, Issey Miyake, vintage, etc.

Perhaps the lack of variation in a wardrobe can be viewed as lazy, but to pigeonhole a brand is a lazy comment.
