Posh, Savvy, & Sophisticated.

Posh, Savvy, and Sophisticated. That’s what it’s about at Tillman Style. Hi, I’m John Herbert Tillman, but you can call me John. I’ve been offering men’s clothing in Seattle and around the globe since 1990.

Over the past 3 decades, I’ve built up a strong reputation among clients and colleagues. Thanks to my expert craftsmanship and knowledge in the custom clothing industry, I’ve earned my place in this billion-dollar industry. But you may wonder, how can I be so certain, right?

I personally believe that in my line of work it’s better to show rather than tell, or perhaps even better to feel, to try on, and then to wear. No one can argue the comfort, poise, and structure of a suit made to behave like an extension of you. Your presence speaks volumes about you. So, it’s time you learn how to dress to impress.

Quality reveals itself, as your whole character. Like you, I’d struggle with finding garments that speak my very own language, fashion-wise. But please, don’t get me wrong. There are talented designers all over the place, but haven’t you ever asked yourself, is this suit telling my vision or someone else’s?

Consequently, to this day I guide my clients with informed suggestions, based on academic research, tons of experience, and a personal touch. My passion for men’s clothing and one on one service truly defines my persona and with today’s ever-changing workplace dress code, I seek to offer a relaxed, personalized, full-service men’s clothing experience.

I don’t rely just on my legacy, I wear it. Inspired by my father, I strive to make unique pieces with quality fabrics and excellent fit. Hence, inspiring others to be their more distinguished selves through elevated personal style.

Great style runs in the family. My journey to adulthood included various stops at my father’s closet, he was always careful and deliberate about what he wore each day. Every detail mattered and that left a lasting impression on me, which inspired me to build my own men’s custom-made clothing business.

I definitely inherited the passion for this trade thanks to my father. My continuing experience as a men’s clothier and my custom made to measure suiting service honors his legacy. Though some may say good taste can’t be learned, I doubt it.

After following my father’s footsteps in style with a mix of erudite luxury and casual elegance, I succeeded in creating with my amazing skilled team, made-to-measure garments of impeccable quality. An easier thing said than done of course.



The voice of experience

Pride is a great asset only if it comes from self-fulfillment. If something makes me proud, it’s my experience in men’s style. My vast background as a men’s clothier gives me diverse criteria in terms of likes and preferences. I’ll assess your options and make sure to offer you an expert recommendation. If something doesn’t work out I’ll be the one to tell you.

Plus, I have a very creative mind, which helps me navigate from classic framing to a bold frenzy. For me, class is a priority. I’ll do my best to enhance your qualities and provide you security, comfort, and charm.

I’m not just a guide, more like a mentor. My knowledge and understanding of the trade are directly passed on to you. I won’t keep you in the shadows, because I believe in self-improvement. With my help, you’ll develop a unique style. Every custom clothing goes hand in hand with complete reliability, and it’s made with extreme attention to every single step of the process.

Path to a perfect fit

I have my own personal philosophy: clothes make the man. Not in a materialistic sense, it’s more like a philosophical approach. People respect what they see and admire. A custom-made suit is a powerful way to deliver a message, so why not make sure to send a striking one?

What are we without our personality? A great wardrobe voice will make you stand apart from the rest and attract just the right kind of attention. There´s a reason why the best dressed are always the center of attention. So, are you ready to be part of the conversation? I´m equipped to help you make a personal statement through the clothing you wear. Whether you’re looking for an elegant suit for a formal occasion or just simply relaxing with your friends in style. You can entrust me to deliver your perfect-fit garment.

Surprises are part of the job. Each client has different requirements, measures, sizes, and preferences, but that doesn’t stop me. By mixing unexpected colors, textures, and patterns I’ll come up with something special, made up to match your own flair.

But, what happens if you don’t have a good idea of how you would like to look? This is a fair concern, especially if image consulting is out of your own expertise. I prefer to dig deeper into a client’s mind. In fact, I truly desire to learn who the client is, how they live, and what they want, where they work, habits and hobbies. Nothing is left to chance. It is incredible how much your daily routine influences your style and clothing choices. I modernize custom clothing and enhance the customer experience, every guy who truly seeks a look of authentic character is an ideal client for me.
