Henry A. Davidsen: The Right-Hand Team Every Man Needs

Modern Luxury Editors | October 9, 2020 |

True custom isn’t just immaculate fit, it’s clothing that projects your most impactful image.

Located a block from Rittenhouse Square is the best kept secret in men’s style. Home to the image consultants and tailors of Henry A. Davidsen, this bustling group of sartorialists are working to elevate the image and prestige of Philadelphia one consultation at a time.


What you’ll find upon stepping in the door is a tailored experience unlike any you’ve had before. With their three-step conceptual approach - consult, educate and design - Henry A. Davidsen is your right-hand team when it comes to projecting your most impactful image.

Consult: At the first meeting it’s clear how the Henry A. Davidsen approach is different. The consultation covers more than just basic questions like “What are your professional aspirations and expectations?” or “What fit do you prefer?”. They also tackle questions like “Can you describe a perfect night out?” or “What kind of music do you listen to?”. That’s because Henry A. Davidsen places just as much importance on lifestyle as they do clothing style when building your look.

“The consultation looks at the whole picture, and I mean the whole picture,” says Brian Lipstein, President and CEO of Henry A. Davidsen. “We want to know how you live, where you live, what you like, what you hate, and even your Sunday morning rituals. All of these things impact your look, which helps to create, and must align with, your personal brand.”

Educate: Henry A. Davidsen works to incorporate the client at each step. Knowing that custom clothing is an investment-level commitment, the staff works to educate clients on how custom clothing is made. From fabric swatches to tailoring methods, it’s important for the client to know what’s being selected for their wardrobe and why.


Design: Now it’s time to make your clothing yours. Working closely with the Henry A. Davidsen team, the client will elevate his look into a style that fits him uniquely. The design process covers everything from lapels to linings, buttons to belt loops.

“We focus on style, not trends,” said Lipstein. “When a guy leaves our store he knows exactly who he is. The pieces we build together are made to stand the test of time; when taken care of properly, our suits can last 20 to 30 years.”

The care and consideration each member of Henry A. Davidsen puts into the styling process is unparalleled. If you’re ready for a consultation and to take the small step that will make a big difference, reach out to the team at
