PRESS: Stumptown Blogger’s “Best Men’s Clothing Store” Challenges Trendy Italian Designers

Summary: In response to a backhand comment on a blog post recognizing Este’s as Portland’s best men’s clothing store, the shop responds with a challenge for customers of top Italian designers.

Paul WeddingStumptown Blogger recently recognized Este’s Men’s Clothing, Inc. as Portland’s Best Men’s Shop for 2013. But an early comment on the page claimed Este’s was not for the younger crowd.

Tony Spear, President of Este’s, took exception to that comment.

“Anybody who shops Este’s knows that with custom, we can offer the best of trendy and traditional,” says Spear, “but we decided to take this person’s comment and really show Stumptown what the Stumptown Blogger already knows. It doesn’t matter what a guy’s age is, if he’s looking for the best-looking, best-fitting, best quality business, business casual, and formal clothing around, at the smartest prices, Este’s is his place in 2014.”

To celebrate Stumptown Blogger’s recognition, and as an invitation to Portland men who typically shop at major retailers to buy high-end, designer suits made in Italy, Este’s has issued a formal challenge for 2014:

Este’s invites these men to come to the store with a sample or photo of an Italian-made designer suit they’d like to copy. Este’s will custom make a suit identical in appearance using equivalent or better materials and producing the same or better fit, at a guaranteed 25% savings over the designer brand’s regular retail price.

If Este’s cannot provide the product at 25% savings, they will award the customer a $100 cash card for use anytime.

Este’s Men’s Clothing in the Pearl District provides a full range of men’s custom clothing, including business suits, tuxedos, blazers, jackets, and slacks, custom shirts, and hand-crafted leather shoes and belts to Portland’s savvy, well-dressed men. They also offer tuxes and suits for rental purposes.

Readers may visit Este’s at 1633 Northwest Glisan Street, Portland, OR 97209, or call (503) 227-0275 to schedule a private, in-home/office consultation.

Portland Custom Clothier Introduces Fall Zegna, Barberis, and Holland & Sherry Suit Fabrics with Special Offer – Press Release

Portland, OR — Pearl District custom clothier Este’s Men’s Clothing has just acquired a full inventory of the latest, fall suit materials from three of Europe’s world renowned clothing manufacturers and is now making a special introductory offer for the month of September.

The Ermenegildo Zegna Wool Mill, founded in 1910, is renowned internationally for the world’s finest textiles, including high-quality wool, cashmere and mohair fabrics. After three centuries in the textile business, the Barberis family, led by Vitale Barberis Canonico, is today the largest producer of high-quality cloths in Italy, spinning wool from Merino sheep bred in Australia. For over 170 years Holland & Sherry has supplied prestigious tailors and luxury brands with the finest wool and silk cloth, now from its head office on world famous Saville Row in England.

All the new materials, whether worsted or woolen, tartan or tweed, wool or silk, or all of the highest quality available in the world and are for sale now here in Portland, at Este’s.

Este’s has been known since 1952 to offer the highest quality, best fitting, custom men’s suits in the Portland area. What few outside the Este’s community understand is that this men’s store uses the exact same materials from the same manufacturers as used by the most expensive designer labels in America.

 “Guys who shop here want a world-class look and a world-class fit,” says Tony Spear, president of Este’s Men’s Clothing. “And the only way to accomplish that is with world-class materials. We’ve actually used fabrics from companies like Zegna, Barberis, Holland & Sherry, Loro Piana and more since the store opened. We produce the same looks as the famous designers do.

 “What we don’t do is charge the designer popularity tax.”

 Spear is referring to the higher prices that are typically associated with designer brands. Custom clothing — whether made-to-measure or bespoke — from Este’s is typically 25% to 50% less in price than the major labels.

“This fall, we made another great buy on suit fabric from these European mills and we want to pass our savings along to our customers while supplies last.”

Through the end of September and as materials are available, Este’s is making the following new suit offers:

  • Get a custom suit fashioned from Super 120s from Zegna for $1,295
  • Buy any custom suit using Super 135s from Barberis for $1,595
  • Get a custom suit made from any of Holland & Sherry’s full, fall line starting at $1,595

… And with any custom suit purchase above, get a custom shirt and tie (a $270 value) as an additional gift.

Savvy men seeking smartly priced custom suits, custom shirts, handcrafted dress shoes, and accessories from a top custom clothier may visit Este’s Men’s Clothing, Inc. in the Pearl at 1633 Northwest Glisan Street, Portland, OR 97209 to review all the new colors, patterns, cloths, and designs available. They may also call (503) 227-0275 to schedule an in-home/office private consultation with an Este’s image consultant.
