It’s always a pleasure chatting with Philip Saul, the owner and creative genius behind Sault New England! Sault is conveniently nestled in the heart of Market Square in downtown Portsmouth and serves as a go-to shop for classy and hip men’s clothing and accessories.


Philip is a friendly, upbeat, and stylish guy who has a keen eye for quality products. In his Market Square shop, you’ll find something for every man in your life – whether he’s a lover of New England style and all things nautical, an outdoor enthusiast, or the fun-loving dad who might need a little help in the fashion department.


Philip started in the retail industry during his high school days in the Pennsylvania ‘burbs where he grew up. He worked as a district merchandiser at Urban Outfitters for 10 years, where he learned the ins and outs of retail before settling in Boston and beginning Sault. Philip opened his first shop in Boston’s trendy South End and in May, 2015 opened the doors to his second shop in Portsmouth!


The historic charm, changing seasons, and coastal influence that the seacoast offers drew Philip to Portsmouth (and a little added persuasion from his friends who live here;).

Philip is a creative person who has always been into fashion. He loves the entrepreneurial challenges of owning his own business, and is really happy being his own boss and wearing many hats (literally and, figuratively:). He curates both shops himself and hand selects each product; many of the companies are from New England! His favorite item in the shop right now? The classy and stylish canvas beach tote!


Philip is a big lobstah roll fan and loves the beach…he’s excited to spend more time on the seacoast this summer and explore the wonderful things our little east coast paradise has to offer!

Thank you, Philip, for making Portsmouth Sault’s second home and welcome to the seacoast!
