From Washingtonian's "Best of Washington" list 2016: "Several stores have opened in the neighborhood in the past year, but at the head of the class is this pair of his-and-hers emporiums dedicated to classic American style. Helmed by a husband-and-wife team who have clocked years at, respectively, Ralph Lauren and Vogue, the retailer focuses on wear-’em-forever basics in a prep-friendly rainbow. Cheeky extras (tassel earrings, Day-Glo pocket knives) keep the aesthetic from veering uptight."

Ann and Sid Mashburn has also been featured in Vogue and The Wall Street Journal in 2017.
