What My
Clients Have
to Say

I have been a satisfied customer of Tom James for some 15 years or so. While not a 'big buyer' I have always been treated with respect and interest. The convenience of in-office sales calls and fittings is really a huge plus. As an owner of a company that sells supplies and equipment to dry cleaners, I believe that I know what goes into a quality garment, and I can say that Tom James fills the bill at a reasonable price and with the great benefit of convenient and friendly service.'

I was fortunate several years ago to connect with Darrell Pavelka of Tom James for my business clothing needs. I have purchased shirts, slacks, and sport coats and every item is of the highest quality and fits perfectly. I am 6'8' so it is nice to be measured to my exact size. It is a pleasure to wear the Tom James clothes and I receive frequent compliments. .'

I have done business with the Tom James Co. for over twenty years. The professionalism, quality, selection and convenience are simply unsurpassed. I appreciate the fact that my haberdasher knows my fit, style preferences and wardrobe when suggesting other clothing. It makes it easy to shop and look and feel good!'

Like you, I don't have time to go to stores and 'guess' if something fits correctly. Tom James brings the store to me and takes the guesswork out of the equation. Quality, service, style and dependability.'

About Me


I started with TJ in downtown Chicago, February, 1993. Moved to Minneapolis in July 1996.


Graduated from St. John's University in 1992. (I also did stints at Arizona State and Paddington College in London.)


I plan to increase our team size in Minneapolis from 16 to 20 sales people. We understand that if we grow people, sales and profits will follow. Growth in that order; people, then sales, then profit, is the most sustainable way to build a business.


Wife: Angie
Children: Caleb, Ayla and Emily


I enjoy learning about various business models in our economy. I'm constantly amazed by watching people develop "better mousetraps." Maybe all the good ideas haven't been used up just yet...

Fashion Tips

I'm not saying it's fair or right, but people make assumptions about our ability, talent, drive, trustworthiness, and countless other characteristics based on how we look. How we dress still matters! (Regardless of the company "dress code.")
