HOUSTON (August 18, 2015) – BALANI Custom Clothiers, a company that specializes in men’s custom clothing, announces it will open its first Texas store on October 1 in Houston. The store, located at 3601 West Alabama, in the heart of River Oaks, offers custom tailored business wear, formal wear, casual clothing and accessories with a unique, personalized clothing experience.
“Houston was a natural expansion point and we carefully chose the city for our first footprint in Texas because it is and continues to be a mecca for business and industry, as well as an ideal fit for our brand,” said Sonny Balani, CEO of BALANI Custom Clothiers. The company, in business for over 50 years, has been catering to a loyal client base with a commitment to quality clothing and exceptional customer service. “We focus on creating a fun and relaxing atmosphere during private consultations that goes hand-in-hand with the friendly business environment in Houston,” said Mr. Balani.
Mr. Balani took over the family-run business in 2003 and re-imagined the custom clothing experience by designing a contemporary showroom, developing a collaborative selection process, and employing new technologies in the tailored clothing process. Every garment is guaranteed to fit perfectly and be 100 percent customizable. In an effort to ensure this guarantee, BALANI private consultations begin with taking over 30 measurements and all information is kept on file to streamline the client’s experience during future visits.
BALANI acts as a one-stop shop for clients with a large selection of suit accessories and other details. Fabrics of the highest quality are sourced from Italy and the U.K. and include a large selection of lightweight options ideal for Houston’s climate. During the consultation process, clients will select lapels, stitching, buttons, buttonholes, pockets, monograms, cuffs, collars, lining and more. When the handcrafted suit is complete, clients can then choose from a wide variety of neckties, bowties, shoes, socks, cufflinks, collar stays and pocket squares to make it a truly tailored suit. Affordability is also a focus for the company with custom suits starting at $895, and the average turnaround time ranges from 6-8 weeks.
“Our clients rely on BALANI for superior quality, impeccable fit and the invaluable confidence they feel when walking into an interview, conducting meeting or closing a deal. We are proud to bring that level of service and style to Houston,” said BALANI Custom Clothiers President, Christian Boehm.
