What My
Clients Have
to Say

I have been a satisfied customer of Tom James for 15 years. 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 have been working with Nate Rissi for a number of years. I have found Nate to be very helpful and knowledgeable regarding my need for professional apparel. I appreciate both the selection and quality of the suits that Tom James offers, and I think that you will too!'

I was fortunate to connect with Darrell Pavelka 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. .'

Tom James provides high-end clothing and apparel and matches their products with exceptional customer service. Whenever I need anything, my key sales contact, Brian, is there to help me. Whether it is new clothing or an adjustment, Brian ensures that my request gets addressed promptly. I continue to buy much of my clothing from Tom James because their service and products match my expectations every time.'

It's all about convenience and attention to quality. My Tom James salesman knows my style and what works for me and makes the experience easy. The quality is superb!'

My job requires long hours and puts me in all kinds of environments. 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. The clothing is right the first time, every time.'

Changing from off the rack to tailor made clothing was the smartest thing I could have done. Not only did my haberdasher ensure the fit was right, he gave me ideas to dress bolder than the banker in me. I also like that my Tom James representative comes to my office for shopping, fitting and delivery. .'

I have done business with 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!'

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.)

Goals for My Clients

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.


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.")
