In a growing city, busting with revitalization, there were 7 women’s boutiques in the downtown district and no place for a man to shop. Casual to business casual clothes for men in Claremore that were of good quality were not to be found. Many women could shop for themselves in town but would need to leave for their husbands, sons, dads, boyfriends, etc. Men were often seen sitting on benches outside the boutiques likely from boredom, lol. We saw an opportunity when The District on Main announced a move across the street to a new building. Enter The Haberdashery! July of 2016 began a whirlwind of business development, strategy, purchasing, and labor. Within two weeks of deciding to take on this task, we were in Dallas at the Men’s Market. Market is a fast-paced Sat-Tues of shopping for the upcoming season of clothing. Unfortunately, that meant shopping for spring and creating purchase orders for anything and everything available for fall too. By, October 25th we were chomping at the bit to get the keys to our new space and transform it from a high-end women’s boutique to a manly oasis full of quality apparel, accessories, gifts, and cigars. It two weeks of non-stop blood, sweat, and tears to become most of what we are today. There are several major brands to choose from, many local vendor items, an antique fridge full of free drinks, and a lounge area in case someone just needs to relax mid-day. We are the only place to purchase quality cigars for 15 miles and we are constantly growing our selection and taking customer requests. Since opening, we have added shoes, leather goods, shaving products, local grooming and hygiene care products, wooden watches, custom wood pens, and custom knives.
