Two men armed with assault rifles robbed a high-end Metairie clothing store Wednesday morning (March 7), making off not with cash but several armfuls of expensive merchandise, including shirts that retail for $400 to $500 each.
"They knew what they were targeting: high-end clothing that has a high retail value and a high street value," interim Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joseph Lopinto said.
No one was injured during the holdup, which occurred about 10 a.m. at Jeff's Haberdashery, 3321 Severn Ave., Metairie. Two employees and a customer were inside the store, which had just opened for the day, Lopinto said.
One robber rushed inside and ordered everyone onto the ground, according to employee Warren Purvis, 30. The second robber then walked in and began grabbing clothing from the racks, including shirts, jeans and shoes.
"They went for the most expensive stuff," Purvis said, noting the men even took shirts off two mannequins. "It was very specific."
The robbers made at least two trips to their getaway car and were very calm throughout the holdup, according to Purvis, telling the victims they did not want to hurt anyone.
Investigators aren't yet sure how much merchandise the suspects stole. The store is still performing an inventory, according to Lopinto.

“Perps described as two men with dark brown skin....
Ha-ha! The Monolithic Media Cartel is in FULL DENIAL mode!
They are negroes, Jim.
surely they were in on other occasions to scope out the items they were so intent upon - the store must have security cameras.. ?
Jeff’s must’ve changed their inventory to include items that appeal to these dazzling urbanites.
“Two men with dark black guns” lol....
Is it racist to say I thought so before reading the story?
Can’t they just ban robbers from carrying more than say, a whistle?
That’s a movie you won’t see Jimminy Kibble talking about at the Oscars show anytime soon lol!
I don’t care if I get richer than God, I will NEVER pay $400 for a freaking shirt.
Disappointed in the pictures. I really wanted to see what a $500 shirt looks like. Are they hand sewn by Ivanka Trump?
Like George Hamilton?
Who are the real robbers here?
These guys have probably already sold this stuff in Houston.
