ROSS BENNETT COLLECTION

At a certain point in most men’s lives, one will begin to appreciate the finer things in life, if they so choose. But as we get older, the importance and the value of dressing well is something most men see, but few follow- we at Ross Bennett want our suitings to be draping leaders, showing off each individual style. Some men may only wear a jacket or a suit for certain events/special occasions; some wear them every day. Both types participate in a certain global custom that came to be when the British were the mercantile rulers of the planet and the way the Man presented himself to society was symbol of success at the highest levels across the globe.

A true custom suiting experience requires meticulous precision and a level of expertise that allows for a seamless experience of what was asked for.  At Ross Bennett we take great pride in providing that experience where vision and reality unfold to provide something beyond what was requested. No matter your preference, all men and women who tailor with us are assured satisfaction with the knowledge that their clothing is made for the kind who appreciates fine clothing, and want to continue the image of success within their own closet.

We are a family run business now for over 10 years, serving men and women all over the world. We invite you to join our family, and let Ross help you transform into the person you want to be.

NEFRFRESHR

First and foremost, my style and work is influenced by the most powerful art form of the twentieth century: Graffiti. As a young child, I was captivated by the bold letter styles, colors, and imagery of Graff writers in my hometown of Pittsburgh. Surrounded by the sounds of hip hop, the Graffiti murals were like cinema to my imaginative mind.

The name, NefrFreshr (pronounced Never Fresher), derives itself from Nefertiti. Egyptians did not separate art from religion or science. Hieroglyphics were a complex code of symbols that contained layers of meaning. As an artist, I feel my work always has some spiritual, social, and/or political coding. But, I also want my work to be fly and attractive. Something familiar, but with a twist that represents a combination of the native/indigenous and the modern/urban energy.

Freshness is the essence of life.
