The Dr. Jay's legacy began in 1975 with the opening of their first store, in the South Bronx section of New York. Not coincidentally, hip-hop had its origins in the same neighborhood around the same time that Dr. Jay's opened its first doors. The urban landscape was changing, and with the new music came a new fashion sensibility. Dr. Jay's has been a pioneer in providing these urban fashions ever since, growing to 19 stores throughout the New York Metro area.
In the same way that their New York and New Jersey stores serve countless out-of-state and international visitors, the DrJays.com internet store now enables them to share their passion for urban fashion with millions of consumers around the world. Dr. Jay's has built its success over the last 25 years by offering the latest styles from the leading brands, while continually discovering new brands to bring to shoppers. Dr. Jay's was there as urban fashion was born in the inner-city, and continues to expand today both online and offline, as urban fashion breaks free of all geographic and cultural boundaries.
