Emily Hemby, the grand dame of Highcliffe, has been providing our customers with exceptional service since 2009. She has a deep appreciation for items made in the USA, many of which are featured on our shelves. On her days off she can be found at the baseball diamond cheering on her son or settling in with a glass of Riesling and a rollicking good comedy.
Philip Miller, the maverick in the driver’s seat, started his dapper journey as a sartorial savant at the tender age of ten, taking a pocket knife to the cuffs of an oxford shirt so he could wear cufflinks. This led him to develop a line of cufflinks and men’s accessories inspired by his love of cars and the sporting life, as well as becoming Highcliffe’s head of marketing in 2012. In his off hours, Philip relaxes with cigars and whiskey as well as historical non-fiction and DIY projects around his home. He is inspired by stylish films and their stars - James Bond, Cary Grant and Steve McQueen.
