Culwell & Son
What started as a suit-pressing facility in 1920 has morphed into the must-stop for a male rite of passage: buying the first suit. Generations of Dallas men have bought suits from this service-oriented shop, where it’s all about men all the time. A thoughtfully thorough sales staff can take the information you give them and within a few minutes have a focused selection of clothing—sport coats, ties, suits, trousers, shoes—from which you can take your pick. If ready-to-wear isn’t your cup of tea, Mr. Fancy Pants, then trust the in-house tailors to build your custom suit. In what we consider the best deal around, they offer three customized suits and shirts for $2,400. For boys who aren’t quite up to tailored suits, there’s a huge selection of shirts by wildly popular Hickey Freeman and classic Ike Behar, and free alterations are offered for any new purchase. If you need a complete overhaul, walk over to the Grooming Room for a haircut and shoeshine.
