COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Astor & Black is the 42nd fastest growing retailer in the country for the second year in a row. With professional clothiers in most major cities including New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles and Miami, Astor & Black brings their unique form of fashion retail consulting to your home or office where they measure, style and fit each client.
"You could say we've declared war on the rack," says David Schottenstein, CEO and Founder of Astor & Black. "Because when people experience the quality of custom clothing vs. off-the-rack at our prices, they just can't go back. So we're really at war with this misperception that custom clothing is an elite experience. In fact, it's a very affordable luxury and we're focusing on telling that story one client at a time."
Astor & Black's product quality continues to set the company apart by making what were once elitist features standard in every suit, such as: fully canvassed lining, surgeon cuffs (working buttonholes), picked stitching, reinforced stitching, sweat shields, custom linings, rubberized waistbands, hidden cash pocket in slacks, heel protective cuffs and built-in pocket squares.
Astor & Black was founded in 2004 by then 21-year old David Schottenstein with the idea to create a person-to-person business that elevates the standard of dress for the modern man by delivering a quality garment with a perfect fit and helpful style advice.
"It's wonderful to be recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the country," says Schottenstein. "We truly believe in the personal experience that Astor & Black has to offer around the globe, and we can't wait to tell more people about it."
Astor & Black also notably ranks #42 in Retail and #12 in Columbus, OH.
Astor & Black will be honored at the 30th Annual Inc. 500|5000 Conference and Awards Ceremony that will take place September 22–24, 2011, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
