J.H. & Sons Clothier has established itself as a Midwestern destination for distinctive menswear with flagship stores in Omaha and Sioux Falls. To ensure gentlemen across the Twin Cities can put their most dapper foot forward, the boutique is bringing its timeless selection of world-class brands and tailoring services to a new location at Galleria Edina. Ahead of the storefront’s opening this fall, general manager Kevin Luedke gives us an inside look at the J.H. & Sons client experience, shares a few ways men can elevate their wardrobes and more.
Can you paint us a picture of the J.H. & Sons experience?
It’s our goal to immerse our clients in a beautiful setting, offer the world’s best menswear collections, and deliver unmatched style, value and hospitality. It’s our hope that guests have an effortless and enjoyable retail experience while exploring our highly curated offering
Do you offer any special in-store services
Our shopping experience is rooted in the idea of bespoke hospitality. We aim to make every moment of a client’s visit memorable, and there’s no better way for this to happen than when they work with our master tailor, Dinh Nguyen.
What brands can shoppers find at J.H. & Sons?
Our core collections consist of Brioni, Canali, Corneliani and Eton. We look forward to welcoming a wide range of new luxury casual and tailored brands, including 100 Hands, Kiton, Ring Jacket and Santoni.
What is your current favorite menswear trend?
My favorite menswear trend of the moment is the soft-constructed suit. It’s a style staple that can be worn on any occasion — at the office with a shirt and tie or as a more casual look with an open-collar shirt and a pair of dress sneakers.
Which staples belong in every well-dressed man’s closet?
This list is truly endless! However, every well-dressed man’s wardrobe should include a crisp white shirt, a great pair of five-pocket denim pants and a well-tailored versatile blazer.
Any advice for men hoping to elevate their wardrobe?
We encourage all of our clients to be open-minded and to step outside of their comfort zone when exploring new ways to elevate their look. Our team of experienced style advisors, including Chuck Simpkins, are always available to help guests do just that.
