Speaker | Jack Rudolph - Squire Shop | Mansize Men's Wear

Jack has been a member of the 722 Breakfast Club since 1986. He has been in business 37 years. He moved to Saskatoon in 1966 and graduated from Walter Murray Collegiate. Jack's initial training was in jewelry. His wife is Terrie. They have one son, Mitchell. In 1976 Jack and his then business partner expanded the Squire Shop to also include Mansize Men's Wear. Jack is one of the original members of the breakfast club and a strong supporter of it.

Jack spoke a bit about the Canadian garment industry. He feels that Canadian manufacturers make the best suits on the world. Canadian products have a better fit, more durability and better overall quality. Jack feels that wool is still one of the best materials available to make clothing. A new trend is to make clothing from viscose extracted from the bamboo plant. It is natural and wears much like silk.

They rent and sell tuxedos. It is not as common for men to buy a tuxedo but Jack feels they are one of the best clothing investments available as they don't date at the same pace as other items. While they rent tuxes for a lot of weddings, Jack says that many men are now buying suits instead for their wedding day so they will still have something after the event is over.

Jack had 2 gift draws after his presentation was complete.
