Men will now have a new trendy upscale location to pick up a suit

Suitsupply, an Amsterdam-based company whose suits are known for being well-made if not a bit flashy, has signed a lease for 5,653 square feet adjacent to the Four Seasons hotel in Georgetown.

Alex Walker of Miller Walker Retail Real Estate worked with Suitsupply, while John Asadoorian represented the landlord.

The store, still under construction, is the first in the area. Suitsupply also has a U.S. store in New York, and another under construction in Chicago.

“Everything in our store is about tailoring,” said CEO Fokke de Jong, who described the company’s look as elegant men’s fashion done in a new and energetic way. “Some people say that we’re really not your dad’s kind of store.”

SuitSupply stores tend to be destination retail, de Jong said. The company thought the Georgetown location would appeal to a young demographic interested in dressing to impress. The store will open later this summer.
