What is Wardrobe Consulting?
In simple terms, a wardrobe consultant is someone who makes sure that your clothing shows you to your best advantage. I work exclusively with male clients to hone their business and casual wardrobes to reflect their tastes and stations in life.
I’ve had several careers. I’ve worked for the Federal Government and the private sector in big businesses and small. I am comfortable in any of those environments and know what the expectations are in terms of how professionals present themselves. With my background in advertising and marketing, and strong retail and custom menswear experience, you can count on my professional knowledge to take you or your company’s look to the next level.
Menswear isn’t really trend driven. However, over the last decade we’ve seen a shift in the normally glacially slow movement of changing style. What is the correct width of a lapel? A tie? What silhouette looks best on you? What shoes should you be wearing? Are black suits acceptable? What about jeans or khakis? Polo shirts? I will educate you and your employees so that you can make the right choices when choosing your clothes or adding to your wardrobes.
On a personal level, I want to make your life simpler. My goal is to have you reach into your closet and no matter what you pull out, know that you’re going to look and feel your best.

Chris – not sure if this fits in – but how about a post on pocket knives with professional wear. I have a couple of light weight every day folders – but I have found that the clips start to damage my pockets at the lower seam. so annoyingly I have to put in DEEP in my pocket. Someone ought to come out (maybe they already exist) with a gentle clip that doesn’t harm our fine fabrics.
