For clothier Trey Kraus, well dressed means a trim suit, a well-knotted tie and, sometimes, a maladjusted rabbit.

Inspired by throwbacks like Clark Gable and Fred Astaire, Kraus appreciates the art of dress. “When I need to dress, I dress,” he says. “To me that means a suit, and that means current. Wearing outdated clothes is a mistake.”
And above all, it must fit right.
“It should be expertly tailored, and that doesn’t always mean expensive,” he says. “Today everything is slimmer. The suit coat has evolved. When lapels go slimmer, a tie goes slimmer. And you can’t have a loose shirt billowing out of a slim jacket.”
When it comes to details, Kraus is particular. “One of my biggest pet peeves is a sloppily knotted tie,” he says. “It’s such a small detail, but it makes all the difference.”
Speaking of things that make a difference, stellar customer service goes a long way, and it’s one thing that’s always in style.
“My driving force is a desire to service my clients,” he says. “From the littlest details to the biggest.”
Just don’t be surprised if he smartens your tie knot on your way out. It’s just his little way of saying he cares.
