We are so happy to have you in our Frank & Eileen family and hope that you fall madly in love with all things F&E.
Nearly 10 years ago, Audrey founded and rooted our brand in her Irish heritage — borrowing her grandparents’ names — and sourced the finest fabrics from a family-owned mill in Italy. After building a reputation for delivering the highest quality shirts on the market, Tee Lab was born from our Irish story of love and developed to bring you luxury knits made in sunny California.
At Frank & Eileen, we strive to create timeless daily classics that, like true enduring love, withstand the test of time.
We are so happy to have found a friend in you.
Goodbye Dear for the present,

AN INTERVIEW with HUMANITY MAGAZINE
TEXT BY CATHERINE WAGLEY
When she arrived in Los Angeles, Audrey McLoghlin knew little about fashion. She certainly didn’t know she would design a line of shirting that merged luxurious Italian fabrics with a casual California aesthetic and an Irish love story.
A graduate of Georgia Tech’s engineering program, she had worked at a tech start-up in Cambridge, Massachusetts, during the Dot Com boom. “I was one of the only female software engineers,” she recalls. “It was a wild time.” Then the bubble burst, the tech industry crashed, and she decided to move to California to learn about manufacturing.
“I knew I wanted to build something,” she remembers. “At that point, I just had no idea what that meant.” Within weeks, she was working with an accessories designer, learning the design business. Within a year, she had opened a high-end boutique in Manhattan Beach named Una, after her mother. Within four years, she founded Aude, a multi-brand wholesale company that would keep her Una stores fully stocked. Frank & Eileen came to her by accident. She had gone to visit a manufacturer to discuss a tissue-weight cashmere concept. “He put me into a room and said, ‘Wait here for a minute,’” she remembers. “He left me in there too long and I started snooping, which is my favorite thing to do when I’m left alone.” She found an old book of Italian menswear fabrics, made by a family-owned mill in Bergamo, Italy. By the time the manufacturer returned, she had lost all interest in cashmere. By the end of 2008, she was making men’s and women’s shirts with the 140-year-old Italian mill.
