"Clothes Don't Make The Man (Or Woman)", but there's significant value in being well tailored, well groomed and well prepared. With over 15 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 thinking entrepreneurship. At first, there was the direct sales necktie busines, which expanded to ready-to-wear shirts and special order suits. There were the trips to tradeshows and industry events all over the country. Some great, many just another step to what would become L.R. CLOTHIER, the company that is named after the daughter of James Davis.

We now source the world's best mills for the finest fabcics. There's Peru, France, Italy and even South America. In orer to have the finest tailored garments, you must start with the finest raw materials and textiles. Over the years, tailoring became the ultimate passion. The signature house style of the brand is what we called a "Contemporary Classic"... a slightly new twist on the styles and form models that date back to the late 1800s. Our tailoring roots date back over 50 years, giving us the expertise required to create truly custom garments. We employ the world’s finest tailoring standards on every project and spare no expense on the process.

Our garments are prized mostly of hand work resulting in a pattern that is unique to each customer. Our shirt collars are tuned by hand, we use the finest horse hair canvassing in our jackets and we employ natural horn buttons on all tailored garments. These are just a few of the standards you will enjoy on your next L.R. CLOTHIER custom garment.
