Philippe Haas Bespoke Tailoring creates unique, custom suits for men and women who want a luxurious garment and experience. Located in a stately building downtown on Court St., Haas’ showroom is the epitome of class. Deep green carpets, soft leather chairs and floor to ceiling windows with natural light spilling through to create the perfect setting for an urban, yet elegantly fashionable affair.

At Philippe Haas Bespoke Tailoring’s downtown-based studio, clients can peruse seasonally sourced fabrics, choose from a selection of fashionable buttons, and have measurements taken all while sipping a drink from the stylish bar cart. Haas opened his storefront less than a year ago when he returned to Cincinnati after spending time living in Berlin. He gained professional fashion experience while living in Berlin traveling and working all over Europe opening stores, overseeing the buying and establishing client relationships.

This experience afforded him the relationships with the companies based in Europe — primarily Italy and the United Kingdom — from which he sources the fabrics used for clients today. Haas also has a personal relationship with fashion. Throughout his entire life, he has always been exposed to high quality and high fashion design. His grandfather was a talented tailor in Morocco and his mother worked in her own store downtown for 20 years. “I always received nice clothes as gifts when I was younger,” says Haas, laughing as he recalls being the only kid at school with a velvet sports coat. What Haas appreciates most about owning his own business is the ability to say “yes” to everything. Any garment can be customized exclusively to the individual client’s specific taste, which is the essence of Bespoke Tailoring. From the outer fabric of the garment to the lining; the piping to the stitching; the pockets to the lapels- all aspects of the final product will be a reflection of the style and sophistication of the designer.

“With the wide range of options in fabrics, patterns and accents, it can occasionally be overwhelming to design your own suit,” says Haas. “I like educating my clients in how to create and style their pieces. My goal is to have everyone looking and feeling good.” Recently, Haas has debuted a new line of pocket squares for the fall and winter season. They are made from wool and hand-stitched in Italy. Currently, Haas is open at the showroom by appointment only and prices are available upon request. He also offers on-site consultations, which feature the same caliber service as his downtown studio, with the added intimacy and comfort of never leaving your home or office.

As a client, Haas says you are guaranteed to receive a garment of high quality construction and impeccable craftsmanship. The Philippe Haas Showroom is located at 119 East Court St., Suite 214, in Cincinnati OH 45202. To learn more, visit http://www.philippehaas.com or “like” them on Facebook.
