Houndstooth Clothing Co. based its reputation on unique design and quality construction.

In Oct. 1993

The first Houndstooth store was opened in the Northwest Arkansas Mall of Fayetteville and carried only Houndstooth Originals. Soon after, we realized that Houndstooth had potential beyond its hometown. So, we expanded. In 1996, a store was opened in Central Mall in the city of Ft. Smith, AR. In 1997, the expansion continued all the way across the state to Jonesboro, AR in the Mall at Turtle Creek.

In 1999

After a short break, the additions kept coming. A location was opened in the fall in Park Plaza Mall in Little Rock, AR. This was a great year for the company. We began producing a line of licensed apparel for Razorback fans and soon secured a strong following. Our latest addition, the Hot Springs Mall, opened in October 2004 and is growing in the traditional Houndstooth way.
