When Joe Moseley and Roy Hollard combined their decades of expertise in the men’s clothing business in 2005, their original intent was an upscale men’s clothing store. Riding that success, a year later they expanded into women’s clothing and accessories. Now Moseley & Hollard, located in River Ranch’s Onebane building on Camellia Boulevard, has decided to return to its original mission.
“Our men’s business is through the roof,” Moseley says. “It’s the goose that laid the golden egg.” In reflecting on the year ahead, Moseley says the partnership decided to discontinue its women's clothing to make room for an expansion of its men’s lines — everything from tailored clothing to sportswear, shoes and accessories.
The full inventory of women’s fashions is currently marked down 50-75 percent, and Moseley anticipates the inventory will be depleted by late March.
Joe Moseley and Roy Hollard became good friends in the late 1980s, when the two worked together in one of Lafayette’s premier men’s clothing stores, the former Gaidry’s in the Oil Center. They pursued separate careers in the local men’s fashion business, but the two continued to hunt and fish together, and their conversations over the years eventually turned to talk of launching their own concept. In 2005 they took the plunge, leaving their respective employers to open Moseley & Hollard, which they described as “classy contemporary with a twist.”
