Meet the Team

Connie Thompson, Assistant Manager

Jack & Joan Shea, Owners 

Jock Miller, Manager & Buyer

Like many Hilton Head Islanders, Jock is a transplant from the northeast, settling on the island in 1981 with years of men’s retail fashion experience under his belt. Part of a group of young and energetic salesmen hired by founder Dick Crose, Jock helped to establish Knickers as the preeminent men’s specialty store in the low country.Today, his boundless energy, sharp eye for on-trend fashion, and engaging personality are the driving forces behind Knickers’ success.



We salute Richard “Dick” Crose, the founder of Knickers, whose vision and drive still reverberate around Harbour Town, the little slice of heaven he helped to promote upon discovering it as Ralph Lauren’s southeast sales rep. 

And we remember with deep affection our dear friend and previous owner Tom Cooper, a true gentleman, brilliant merchant, and devoted family man, taken from us far too soon.

And we fondly acknowledge Hugh “Hughie” Green, long time Knickers employee and popular ambassador.

RIP, gentlemen.

Jack & Joan Shea
