Why Haberdasher Custom Clothing?

Choosing a personal clothier can be an overwhelming decision. Let us explain our values and founding principles.
Service and quality are our hallmarks, and we will not compromise on attention to detail. Our clients appreciate this, and the convenience we provide. Because we are a personal boutique operation focused on high-end clientele, we limit the number of clients we serve to ensure our clients receive the best, most responsive service possible. Because we are relationship-based, our goal is to become a trusted partner in making sure you look your best, love your clothes, and feel appropriately dressed no matter the occasion…
My Haberdasher clients take pride in knowing they get their clothing made from the finest sources the world has to offer.

Please complete a client information form, or give us a call to have a personal conversation and to determine if we might be the right fit for you.

PREMIUM QUALITY

Our fabric selections come from the finest mills in the world and our clients always get a quality product that we stand firmly behind.

 

CONVENIENCE

Shopping for clothing should be enjoyable and convenient. Take the hassle out of shopping. No crowds, no rush. With rare downtime, the last thing most men say to themselves at this point is “I want to go clothes shopping.”

My Haberdasher concierge services accommodate the most demanding schedules to outfit clients conveniently.

Constructed With the Highest Standards

Today it seems like we have all learned the lesson that “you get what you pay for.” In no industry does this apply more than in the textile industry. In the days of worldwide competition based solely on price, it is no wonder things get produced ever more cheaply. We believe that to provide value to our clients, we need to offer them something that is made for them with the best possible materials and construction. When it is time to buy something that feels amazing to wear, we are here to provide that value.

BOB HUMMER

In 2013, a longtime client and JMU alum J. Robert “Bob” Hummer asked if I could make him a purple blazer in honor of his beloved JMU. It was two years before I could find fabric in THE purple and of a quality Bob expected. He was the consummate gentleman and his clothes reflected this. Appearance mattered to Bob and he kept me on my toes! Eventually, he wore the blazer to a JMU Alumni event, and word spread. By 2017, several alumni were interested. At the same time, I was now able to offer custom linings, so the JMU logo-lined blazer was born!

Bob passed away in May of 2020. He was a great client, a great friend, and a great man. He is missed dearly by the countless people who are grateful he was their friend.

“Remembering Bob Hummer”

” What Our Customers Are Saying About Our University Blazers & Vests “

” I absolutely love both of my blazers from Martha/My Haberdasher! Martha goes to great lengths to ensure her customers are satisfied with the final product and she pays attention to every detail.”

“Everywhere I go, particularly at JMU functions in my purple blazer, I receive dozens of comments on my purple jacket with the JMU lining.  I also love that I’m able to wear these jackets in more casual situations with jeans and also in more formal settings. You are sure to get a high quality product from Martha/My Haberdasher! “
