S W Wilson Custom Clothing

Clothier Steve Wilson makes house calls – or even office calls – to meet gentlemen at a time that’s most convenient for them. He brings along hundreds of fabric samples – in pure wool, silk-wool blends, and cashmere-wool blends – and can offer 30 different measurements in order to provide clients with best possible fit and customization experience. Or, try a custom-made dress shirt in Egyptian cotton by Thomas Mason or Albini, and determine your own perfect cuff and color. Also worth nothing, the S W Wilson Custom Clothing store also specializes in men’s accessories, offering dress shoes, cuff links, and even customized neck ties. After you try a silk tie from Wilson’s, where you can request your perfect length, shape, and width, you may never need a new neck tie supplier ever again.

Contact S W Wilson Custom Clothing on their site or at (480) 291-2897

Hub Clothing is the go-to place at Scottsdale Fashion Square for men’s casual and sportswear. The original Hub was founded in 1991 by Tom Simon, who coincidentally, did a previous stint at The Clotherie. At Hub, Simon and the team provide menswear with more of a contemporary edge. This is clothing for men who want the latest styles from the today’s trendiest brands, such as Diesel, Raw, and Modern Amusement. And though the fashions here are cutting-edge, don’t expect any skull and crossbones designs or shirts covered in sequins; Hub still believes in its fair share of pieces with timeless cuts and styles.

Hub Clothing is located at 7014 E. Camelback Road (480) 970-0707
