Jack Wills officially opened the doors to its Philadelphia location over the weekend, at 1617 Walnut Street. Next door to Destination Maternity and across the street from City Sports, the 6,800 square-foot shop is the first U.S. Jack Wills store to be opened outside of New England. The U.K. brand, popular among preppy, college-aged Brits, produces a similar output as Abercrombie & Fitch, complete with barely-there minis and sexually-charged ad campaigns.
Jack Wills is one of several new stores to open on Walnut Street; so far this year, the popular shopping corridor has welcomed Barbour and Doc Martens, with plans for Free People and Gap Athleta to open in the near future.
