Speaker | Jack Rudolph | Squire Shop Man Sized Mens Wear

Jack has been with the club for about 18 years. He has been in the clothing industry for the past 32 years. They do not specialized in designer name labels. Rather they prefer to carry proven reliable Canadian made products.

There is a resurgence of traditional tailored dress clothing in the workplace. We are now back to the suit levels that we had in the 1980's. Striped products are strong and some window pane patterns to a lesser degree are back. Olives are out. Strong reds, bright oranges, apple greens and brighter colours are in. Fabrics made from a bamboo product are new and similar to the feel of silk. Wools and microfibres are still popular. Young people want higher quality clothing. Turtle necks are not popular but mock and crew necks are popular for more casual dress.

Jack says that Chinese manufacturers are posing a big threat for western companies. Their quality has improved vastly and the price is half the cost of a Canadian made suit. However, Jack states that it is tough to beat the quality and durability of a Canadian made garment and our clothing products are well respected in other countries.

Jack gave everyone a new garment bag. Thanks Jack!
