LEXINGTON, KY, Aug. 9, 2016 — Marine Layer, a San Francisco-based casual apparel and lifestyle brand, is the latest first-to-market retailer to join The Summit at Fritz Farm, a $156 million mixed-use development in Lexington, Kentucky.

When the property opens in the spring of 2017, it will include more than 20 new-to-Kentucky brands including Bonobos, Cos Bar, Shake Shack, J. McLaughlin and Brooks Brothers.

Marine Layer was founded in 2009 and currently has 20 locations nationwide. Offering men’s and women’s apparel that is absurdly soft and sustainably crafted, 

Marine Layer features a variety of stylish clothing options including tees, button downs, outerwear, dresses, bottoms, swimwear and accessories, all of which are made with the perfect fabric for each unique product. 

The fabric-obsessed company has more than 25 custom fabrics to create the super soft tees and clothing for which the brand is famous.

“Our expansion strategy is to open new stores in exciting towns we want to travel to,” said John Ferrin, brand manager of Marine Layer.

“There has been a lot of fantastic energy coming from Lexington during the past few years, and we have taken notice. By opening a location at The Summit at Fritz Farm, we look forward to introducing Lexington to the stylish comfort and seven-day-weekend California lifestyle Marine Layer offers.”

The high-quality yet laid-back vibe of Marine Layer will be a perfect addition to the incredible retailers we have in store for Lexington,” said Lindsay Bayer-Shipp, retail brand strategist for Bayer Properties.

“We are excited that so many retailers and restaurants are choosing The Summit at Fritz Farm for their first Kentucky location. 

"The market has been underserved for retail, especially for some of the newer retail offerings, and The Summit at Fritz Farm will fill that void and become a true regional destination.”

The Summit at Fritz Farm, which will open in the spring of 2017, will feature national and regional retail brands, local chef-driven restaurant concepts, the first food hall in the region, Class A office space and luxury apartments.
