For more than 35 years, the expert outfitters at Paco's Custom Clothiers have ensconced customers in handmade wool suits tailored to meet exact personal measurements. Professional thread charmer Paco Fernandez uses more than 2,000 clothing swatches from designers such as Ermenegildo Zegna and Loro Piana to cater to the fashionable desires of each client. Customers meet with the sartorial wizard to select fabrics and patterns after a painstaking measuring. Under Paco's skilled hands, Martin Greenfield suits made with 100% wool and Skip Gambert cotton shirts join forces, allowing patrons to cloak themselves in fine textiles without the dangers of ripping apart Henry VIII's blanket fort. Complimentary biannual consultations ensure that suits continue to fit properly during seasonal growth spurts and after fashion trends that encouraged sprouting extra heads.
Paco's Custom Clothiers
Paco Fernandez was destined for sartorial greatness from the moment he took a sales position at The Custom Shop back in 1973. With hard work, instinct, and a pair of rocket-powered cufflinks, he rose to the top of the chain's regional team, and in 1999, he set out on his own. According to a press release, his first customer was former East Chicago mayor Robert Pastrick, and since that day, Paco's Custom Clothiers has been the tailor of choice for power brokers around the country—and even the world.
The shop, which carries more than 2,000 wool fabrics from designers such as Ermenegildo Zegna and Loro Piana, has outfitted clients from London, Puerto Rico, and Africa. Its high-profile customers include the late Portsmouth mayor James Holley III, named best-dressed mayor by Esquire.
The bespoke-suit shop can fill any clothing request, creating everything from a simple pair of slacks to a full dress tuxedo to a woman's suit. Complimentary biannual consultations ensure that suits continue to fit properly after seasonal weight gain and loss and fashion trends that require a pocket large enough to carry a miniature poodle.
