This Monday I want to share with my Gals and Gents the amazing experience we had with The Fitted Gentleman. For those of you that don’t know The Fitted Gentleman they are a fairly new business, which specializes in tailoring suits. We met the two owners of this business, Jose and Katie Duarte, back in January. They are so passionate about what they do, and love to share their thoughts on menswear. We recently attended our second Social Gents event and Gio was able to wear one of their suits.We live about 5 hours away from each other, unfortunately we weren’t able to go into their shop and get him measured. What we ended up doing is we had someone, where we live, take Gios measurements and The Fitted Gentleman managed to get the suit fitted perfectly! We really didn’t know what to expect, given that he had never gotten a tailored suit, but the final result was amazing. A perfectly fitted suit makes all the difference! Like some of the gents at the event were saying, you don’t need to buy a super expensive suit to look good, you just need to tailor a decent one.
My fellow Gals, trust me when I tell you that you need the Gent in your life to get his suits fitted! After Gio put his suit on he looked like a different man! Usually us Gals find a dress that hugs all our curves, well getting a suit tailored for gents is the same. For my Gents out there if you haven’t gotten at least one of your suits tailored you need to do it. Every one will see the difference!! If you live near Lancaster, CA The Fitted Gentleman is your man when it comes to tailoring your suits!

1. What does The Fitted Gentleman do?
We have a large variety of styles from classic looks to newer slim fit suits to fit each individual. The beauty of our product is that it only fits you, no one else can wear the suit and look the same in it.
2. What made you want to start The Fitted Gentleman?
I have always been into fashion and the opportunity to open a shop was given to my wife and myself and we took it.
3. What is your company’s goal?
Our #1 goal is customer satisfaction. We want every customer to feel priceless when they put on the suit.
4. What is unique about your business?
We will go above and beyond for our customers. We do special appointments for late nights, and mobile visits.
5. Who is your targeted customer?
Anyone really. We have male and female customers. Women like to wear our jackets and socks. Men can benefit from all our products. We even cater to the young gentleman and can get suits from size 2 to husky and everything in between!
6. If not mentioned above, is there any other type of additional services that you offer?
Yes! So glad you asked, we actually do alterations and recently made a custom wedding dress including all the bridesmaids gowns. Our main retail product are suits, shirts, and ties or bow ties. We can make custom made bow ties and flower girl wreaths.
7.What is the price range of a full fitted suit?
We try to keep profits low and customer satisfaction high. Our numbers start as low as $99 for a modern-fit basic suit and go from there. Fitted suits start a little bit higher that that.
8. How far in advance do future clients have to make an appointment by?
I always recommend at least 3-6 months before a wedding, and 2-3 months for special events. It takes some time to get everything fitted.
9. When you get a new clients what do you hope they get out of this experience with your business?
I hope they get a sense of self confidence. I hope that they feel satisfied with our product and want to come back again and again.
10. Where do you see The Fitted Gentleman 5 years from now?
We really want to remain a smaller custom fitting store that tailors more to quality than quantity. We want to be that mom and pop store that everyone feels comfortable going to.
There you have it Gals and Gents, give the gift of a perfect tailored suit from The Fitted Gentleman! Don’t forget to follow them on Instagram and Facebook to keep up with their work and upcoming events!
