Eric helped me update my wardrobe after I lost a lot of weight. He has extensive knowledge not only about fashion, but about the processes, techniques, and historical nuances the industry is built on. He also knows San Francisco and the stores there very well, often having personal contacts at every store we visited. Additionally, he was able to help me learn both how clothes should fit, as well as how to create endless combinations: something which I was never taught and have always had trouble with. I highly recommend Eric for any and all stylist consulting.Apr 22, 2017Verified
Eric is a godsend. I've never worked with a stylist or a wardrobe consultant before, but man was it a good decision to try it. Eric is super easy to work with and very structured. His methodology is very thought through, efficient, and I never felt forced to spend more than I wanted to. The feeling of nailing down outfits that fits both your measurements and the style you're going for is empowering. I'll also admit that Eric has swayed me into trying new looks that I otherwise would not have touched, and its resulted in quite a few compliments from guys/girls alike. Part from knowing everything about mens style and fit, Eric is also a walking encyclopedia when it comes to the history of fashion and garments. Ask him anything he'll give yo a breakdown of the current trends, the reasoning behind it, and the history of how it came about. I did the initial 3 session consultation which was really fun and helpful, and these days I reach out Eric whenever I have a particular issue, or an event/trip coming up. The one thing I don't have is a lot of time to browse/shop/hunt, this is way much more efficient. You'll never wear poorly fitting clothes again, you'll never be confused what the 'rule' is for any garment/situation is again, you'll never be afraid to try a new look again, and be prepared to get random compliments from strangers, colleagues and friends. Have fun!Jul 9, 2017
As someone with little to no knowledge of mens formal wear, Eric helped me find the look that works best for me. He has an extensive knowledge of mens fashion and I trust him to find the clothes that best suit my build and style. I would recommend Eric to anybody who's looking for anything from a complete wardrobe overhaul, to simply giving their wardrobe some pizzazz.Jan 9, 2017Verified
Eric is a fantastic stylist and really great to work with. He met all of my needs, including a home visit to personalize my experience, based on my current wardrobe. I felt at ease knowing that he wasn't trying be a salesperson (who would pressure you into certain items and brands). Instead, he gave me great advice that was not only useful for our appointments, but also for future shopping. His style and personality exemplifies a truly classic gentleman. If you are looking for guidance on men's styling, he is THE guy!Jan 21, 2016Verified
Eric has the fashion skills to provide excellent recommendations. I was satisfied with his knowledge. I was disappointed with the execution of services.Dec 26, 2015Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My appointment structure varies with the individual needs of the client, but I generally work as follows: 1st Appointment: We go through your closet, and decide what to keep, what to tailor, and what to give or throw away. I'll pin your alterations myself as we go along. Once we've gone through everything, we'll sit down and identify the needs in your wardrobe by talking about your lifestyle, personal taste, work environment, and any future events we need to consider. Between the 1st and 2nd appointments, I'll take the garments that need tailoring to a tailor, and also do some pre-shopping to set aside items we'll be looking at together during the 2nd appointment. 2nd Appointment: We pick up your tailoring, and briefly discuss what to look for when we're shopping together so we can identify the pieces that will best serve the needs of your wardrobe and lifestyle. As we shop together, I'll explain features of the clothes, and guide you to the best fit and quality possible. 3rd Appointment (optional): Now that you have new and fantastic clothes, and everything we may have ordered online has arrived, we go through your closet, and I teach you the fundamentals of outfit-building so you can understand how to put together great looks for any event or occasion
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I began my trip into style and fashion in an unorthodox way--I learned about clothes first from the internet. I was an early teen, and used fashion as a tool to improve my self-image. My goal with every client is to help their confidence improve like mine did! Soon after, I began working for Club Monaco as a Men's and Women's stylist, taking my knowledge and passion for passing that confidence to others, and eventually training my peers to do the same! After I left Club Monaco, I served at SuitSupply in both New York City and San Francisco as a sales associate and training manager. I have worked with literally thousands of clients -- A-list celebrities, politicians, businessmen, teens and college students. I am intimately familiar with tailored clothing, and can discern subtleties of fit based on thousands of hours of experience in tailoring. Now, I take private clients young and old, and work to educate and empower them to make style choices based on the best advice and education I can offer. My goal is not just to make you look good, but to give you the tools necessary to leave the appointment more knowledgeable than many stylists are themselves.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I have experience with clients of every shape, size, race, and budget! Because I have training and experience in pinning, alterations, and tailoring, I can help to dial in any garment for a perfect fit. I've worked with men looking for total wardrobe overhauls, or simply looking for help with a special event -- like a wedding or engagement photo shoot, a job interview, or a vacation.
