Michael Zell, Owner

Welcome to Nathan’s, a family custom tailoring business that has been catering to the clothing needs of the business community in Richmond and throughout the state of Virginia for over 70 years. Our mission is to offer our clients the very best value in custom clothing at reasonable prices and with excellent customer service. We are custom tailors specializing in custom suits, sport coats, pants, tuxedos, top coats, made-to-measure shirts and other men’s clothing and accessories.

Modern Day Value

If you like your clothes and they make you feel good every time you wear them – you’ve gotten your money’s worth and that’s value.

A casual approach to business is gone.  Today men are interested in looking smart, dapper and more put together than ever before.  It is dressing up for competitive advantage.  It is a trend that spans from the most youthful to the most mature.

Custom clothing and the assistance of your professional tailor is the surest way to gain traction and accelerate your progress as you look to update your wardrobe.  The successful man wants to take something that is inherently classic, like a great suit, and personalize it–to make it his own–through custom fit and styling.

While the suit is the cornerstone of this wardrobe upgrade, the addition of dressier accessories like French-cuff dress shirts, subtle yet distinctive cuff links, high-quality neckties and classic shoes supplement and complete the package.

The Competitive Advantage of a Good First Impression

The maxim, “You only have one chance to make a positive first impression”, is undoubtedly familiar to those who appreciate and have chosen to wear custom tailored clothes.  You understand that you have only 4-5 seconds in which to make that critical first impression.

Why buy a designer suit off the rack when for the same money or less you can get a  custom suit made specifically to fit you in a material you want? Don’t spend a lot of money on a suit that doesn’t make you stand out. Work one-on-one with a devoted custom tailor who knows how to suit you so that you look sharp and distinguished.

All of our business is done by appointment in our showroom, or in your home or office. There is no wasted time during the process of your purchases. It’s never too late to treat yourself to the attention you deserve.

We’d be happy to guide you on your first custom clothing experience, or to assist you in building your established custom wardrobe. Please give us a call to find out about our prices for various offerings or to set up an appointment.
