Throughout the centuries, there has only been one true constant in the world...clothing. Yes, I get it. You're thinking to yourself, "What is this guy talking about, of course clothing has always been a constant. People can't walk around naked!" I get that, but clothing has and will always be a constant thing that people need, and indulge in, in order to make a difference in their lives.
It's completely cheesy and moderately self-satisfying for me to say this, but clothing is the one thing that people use to make themselves feel better about themselves. Ever since I can remember, clothing was a struggle for me. At the ripe age of 12 I was 200lbs.+ and yes, it was hard to look in the mirror growing up and be confident in what I saw. This was until I decided to do something about it. I started to dress better and that, in turn, made me want to physically look "better". I took my health into my hands and even though it took multiple attempts and weight gain back and forth I have kept 60lbs. off for five years.
This post is in no way a means for me to "brag" or "boast" about what I was able to accomplish, this post is made for people to realize that it might be time for a change and that clothing is one way to make yourself want that change. No, clothing is not the end all to all your health problems or self-image problems. It is just a way to show the world who you really are and that you are accepting yourself. In this journey of life, you are always going to have things that need to be worked on. Whether it be a spiritual aspect or even a self-image aspect, the journey never ends.
My theory has, and always will be, that on this journey why not put your best self forward? I believe that the aspect of dressing well and presenting the best version of yourself is found by digging deep and presenting that version of yourself that represents who you are. It just happens to be that one of the best ways to do that is by dressing to your personality and who you are.
You know that old saying "You only get one chance to make a first impression?" Well, that is so true, but one thing that men have to realize is that the second impression, third and fourth impression has the same impact on that person you're meeting as the first impression. ALWAYS present the best version of yourself! This is why we, at R. Coffee Ltd., have been in business 31 years. Our philosophy is found in the idea of "Curated Clothing for Every Man", this concept is based on that fact that we spend countless hours pouring through hundreds of clothing vendors to find You the best clothing available on the market. This is also why we have everything from casual t-shirts to sport coats, Every Man deserves the chance to dress well, no matter what his personality is.
We are here to help make you feel good about yourself. I knew the first day in my career here that I was in the right place. I had a customer walk in and asked for a suit. I take him back show him to his size and pick out a gorgeous suit that I knew would fit perfectly and fit his personality. When he first came in, his personality was rather boring and he barely spoke. However, by the time I had him in his suit and had him look in the mirror, his face completely changed and he felt like a new man. He left the store with a huge grin on his face and has been back three times a year ever since.
This is why I am in this industry, I want to make Every Man feel like that man did leaving my store or even when they are on this website. I am here for you and if you need anything at all please contact us through email or even call the store! Small business builds Big relationships and I am here for any question or concern.
