A tailor shop in Dallas has them beat
News 8 David Schecter takes you to a place where everything is made by hand
Just like it used to be.
DAVID SCHECHTER: Taste’s change. But a well dressed man never goes out of style.
And that’s what’s kept Model Tailors in business for one hundred years. Beautiful
This was its original location in Deep Ellum. Linda Rogers is a long time employee.
LINDA: Absolutely the best workmanship. The best quality.
And as I say: A Century of Tradition.
ANNA: Sixteen and one half
DAVID: Anna Loya bought Model Tailors two years ago and she continues the tradition
ANNA: Some of the customers they have a different length of the arm
DAVID: I have different length arms.
ANNA: You have … You have … You’re perfect. So …
DAVID: They’re the same? Both arms are the same?
DAVID: While Anna took my measurements we shared some history about the earliest customers.
ANNA: Gamblers and Blues singers. Mafia. Local mafia bosses.
DAVID: Other customer have included the guys from ZZ TOP. Stanley Marcus who started Nieman Marcus. Those are his receipts.
MR. PEPPERMINT: Good morning. Welcome to Peppermint Place.
DAVID: And Jerry Haynes the star of the long running children’s show on WFAA TV, Mr. Peppermint.
That’s the actual bolt of fabric they used for his costume.
I had children who watched Mr. Peppermint. I have a son who juggled on Mr. Peppermint.
In any era, a custom made suit is always a luxury.
If it fits right, it gives you … It gives you … Success. And victory in business. You just feel better. You feel better once you put it on.
And a hundred years later it’s a feeling that people are still willing to pay more for. David Schechter channel 8 News.
Are you especially meticulous about your grooming and appearance? Do you spend a substantial amount of time shopping for clothes? What does substantial amount of time mean? Well … did you miss the NFL playoffs to go to Neiman’s last call for the sale on Zegna shirts? You probably don’t go that far. And you don’t want to be called a metrosexual.
If you are a professional who’s dedicated to your business, you probably don’t have a whole lot of time to shop. And even if you do, are you getting the best quality and the best design and keep up with the latest fashion? You probably think that that 5 year old suit still looks good and wears well, so why replace it?
You already know the answer: Your body changes. Fashion changes. The 2016 fashion shows from Paris and Milan showcased some of the most exquisite fabrics for the gentleman’s suit. And the best part is that they start at an affordable price.
One of the main reason to dress well, let’s be honest, is not just to dress for success. It’s to be noticed as a man of taste and class.
The master tailors at Model Tailors can make a bespoke suit with the finest fabric, custom made to fit you stature. For example, James Craig in a t-shirt is just an actor. But put him in a bespoke custom suit and he is transformed into “James Bond” The women want him and the men want to be him. Bond is just one example of what a sharp dressed man can accomplish with an Italian custom suit and a little attitude.
It takes a little effort, however, and a good style consultant like, Anna Loya, who will personally select the best fabric and design for you. Can you do it yourself? You can try. But that might require you to fly to Paris, Milan, and St. Petersburg Russia for your fashion and design education. Or you consult with a designer and fashion consultant Anna to help you chose your wardrobe and the finest custom suit you can afford.
With Anna and her team of designers and master tailors, you will never look back. Your first MT suit will be an experience and the beginning of a new venture.
