"Clothes Don't Make The Man (Or Woman)", but there's significant value in being well tailored, well-groomed and well prepared. With over 19 years in the industry and being considered a master clothier, you'll love and value the L.R. CLOTHIER experience. The business was founded in 2004 by James Davis, the present day Chairman of the company and Creative Director of the brand. James initially began a career in men ready-to-wear, as a manager in an entry-level national company. With a lot of early success, James desired to become a buyer for the company, but there wasn't a fit, which lead to the idea of launching a brand. At first, there was the direct sales necktie business, which expanded to ready-to-wear shirts and special order suits. There were the trips to tradeshows and industry events all over the country. This all lead to what would become L.R. CLOTHIER, the company that is named after the daughter of James Davis.
