Forty Five Ten on Main
“This store will make you want to book a flight to Dallas, STAT” — InStyle
Forty Five Ten has been an essential fashion destination for women, men, and home since April 2000,
when the store opened its doors in a renovated historic building at 4510 McKinney Avenue. With the
November 2016 unveiling of a new four-story flagship in downtown Dallas, it became
something more: a linchpin and emblem of the city’s downtown renaissance.
Guided by Co-founder and President Brian Bolke and his team, Forty Five Ten has evolved into a brand
with international influence. Within the doors you’ll find a world-class mix of clothing, accessories,
beauty, books, and objects for the home from a thoughtfully curated roster of established and emerging
designers—most found nowhere else in Texas. The store has helped foster designer careers,
developed memorable collaborations, and garnered acclaim from the fashion world at large.
The footprint of Forty Five Ten has grown, too. TTH Forty Five Ten, open since August 2016 in Dallas’
Highland Park Village, distills the distinct point of view of Taylor Tomasi Hill, VP and Women’s Fashion Director.
In December 2016, the new Main Street flagship was joined by the first Forty Five Ten outside Dallas,
a 3,300-square-foot location in Houston’s new River Oaks District.
Spring 2017 brings another first: the transformation of the original 8,000-square-foot storefront
at 4510 McKinney Ave. into the new concept For Home. The groundbreaking furniture and lifestyle boutique offers
customers access to see and shop the best of the Dallas Design District’s premiere interior showrooms—a series
of individual galleries enhanced with gifts, tabletop, and books from the Forty Five Ten point of view.
“The concept is access and edit,” says Home Creative Director Rob Dailey. “Many items are either one-of-a-kind
or offered for the first time at retail.” The T Room restaurant remains the store’s heart and hub.
Whether you’re seeking the perfect basic, something special or simply inspiration, you’re likely to find it
at Forty Five Ten. In the words of Men’s Fashion Director Nick Wooster,
“There’s nothing like it anywhere in the world.”
“An exacting, forward viewpoint spiced with wit, irony and extravagance. It’s a treasure trove for the seriously fashionable.”

“All killer, no filler.”
Curated in collaboration with Men’s Fashion Director Nick Wooster, our men’s department features one of the most advanced selections in the country—a place where John Lobb kicks back with Common Projects, and Saint Laurent, Berluti, and Gucci rub shoulders with Maison Margiela, OAMC, and Visvim. Among the new and notable names for spring (most found nowhere else in Dallas): Acne, Prada, Dries van Noten, Nick Fouquet, Craig Green, Hender Scheme, Sunspel, Willy Chavarria, Wooster + Lardini, Valentino, and Valextra. “The effect,” says GQ, “is less like that of a store and more like being inside the most perfect closet.”
“The edit is a mix of modern, traditional, pedigreed, and humorous.”
