In an era when small businesses are losing ground to megaretailers, it’s rare to find a store that has been on the menswear scene for more than three decades. The first Paul Simon Co. was founded in Myers Park in 1975 to offer exclusive menswear collections from designers like Hugo Boss and Ermenegildo Zegna. The store has evolved, adding casual clothing to the mix, but continues to be the local retailer of choice for top-quality men’s clothing. The shop is known for its custom collection that allows shoppers to purchase made-to-measure pieces.

A few weeks later, custom garments are delivered to those exact specifications.
