Our Story

Jake’s Toggery. What’s in a name?

In the summer of 2015, the first Jake’s Toggery store was launched in our home town of Dayton, Ohio. At that time, we knew very well what our fashion perspective was going to be - Classic. American. Style.

What we were less sure of was a name to convey that perspective. The “Toggery” part was easy - “Toggery” is defined by Merriam-Webster Dictionary as a noun meaning “Clothing” or a “Clothing Store”, and we thought it was memorable. We then chose the name “Jake” because we wanted a name that everyone could relate to, and who has ever known a Jake they don’t like?!?

But there was something missing. An actual Jake! And so we are proud to introduce our new 8 month old Goldendoodle puppy Jake the Tog Dog. Jake has been an amazing addition to both our family, and to the Jake’s Toggery family of stores and associates. He loves making personal experiences at the stores and meeting so many of you as you shop, and even has his own blog on Instagram- follow him @JakeTheTogDog to keep abreast of his many adventures, and watch him grow along with the brand he now inspires.

Four Brick and Mortar Locations and now Online as well!

With four amazing locations to shop at - including Liberty Center in Cincinnati, Polaris Fashion Place in Columbus,The Greene in Dayton and a brand new expanded location at Rookwood in Cincinnati - nothing is better than finding your fashions in person, but we are now proud to announce the launch of our online store, JakesToggery.com! 

Thank You!
