Highlights from WBAL radio interview on Preakness fashion!
15 May 2014
This morning at 8:17am, Judah Estreicher of JBD Clothiers was a guest on WBAL radio 1090 AM, Maryland’s Morning News show with host Bryan Nehman. Here are the highlights on Preakness fashion if you missed it! Audio recap coming soon!
BN: Tomorrow, going out to the tracks and Saturday, people will be out there and want to know what to wear, especially for the guys… so normally for me at the Preakness, it’s usually just tee-shirt and a hat and y’know shorts because I’m in the infield; but if you’re in the grandstand, can you just wear a suit, is that okay?
JE: Yeah, it is ok, but at the same time, this is one of those events where if you’re going to get an outfit specifically for an event, this would be the event to get the outfit for. If you’re going to wear a basic suit, I would try to get a suit where you can add some details to it, that way you can add some tradition of the colors of the Black-eyed Susan.
BN: If you get a custom suit, should it be some kind of loud suit that stands out, that is different than your typical navy blue or pinstripe suit or black suit?
JE: Since I do clothing, I like to be noticed, so of course I’m going to say that if you’re going to go custom you should do something that makes you noticed… specifically because you’re buying custom. People should recognize that it’s personalized.
BN: If you were to go with a woman, should you match your attire with what she’s wearing?
JE: I would find colors that complement each other.
BN: What about hats for guys, is it a necessity?
JE: I’m not a hat person, but if you’re going to go with hats, as a guy, a straw fedora hat would be great.
BN: I heard feathers are in, is that true and does that work for guys, or is it just a female thing?
JE: When it comes to fashion, when people ask me if they can pull certain things off, I always respond by asking them if they believe that they can. I definitely think that the feather look in the hat is a great look, especially because you can add color which can then bring you back to colors that can resemble the Black-eyed Susan.
BN: Tomorrow, Black-eyed Susan day, it’s going to be raining a lot in the morning. Does that affect your wardrobe choice at all?
JE: I wouldn’t change what I’m wearing, just wear colors that would be noticeable and bring an umbrella and a good looking raincoat.
BN: Any colors this year that are hot right now?
JE: I would say light blue, I’ll be wearing a very light blue suit with white buttons on it. Light colors, light grey, light blue, light green even.
BN: Thanks for joining us on Maryland’s Morning News. That was Judah Estreicher here telling us a little bit of fashion; he’s the founder of JBD Clothiers in Baltimore.

Business Insider Quotes Judah Estreicher of JBD Clothiers on Double-Breasted Suits
23 Apr 2014
Business Insider caught up with Judah Estreicher, founder of JBD Clothiers, for the rundown on how to pull off the double-breasted look this spring and summer. “The key with the modern double-breasted look, Estreicher told us, is that it’s shorter and slimmer than the traditional cut.” So forget that picture in your mind of your grandfather’s double-breasted jacket and think 2014 fashion catwalks and red carpets!
“You should be able to wear it casually in Spring and Summer too, so think lighter colors…” It seems almost irreverent to put the words “double-breasted” and “casual” together, but that’s the way to wear it this season! The trending look is the summer casual white or light colored blazer worn with seasonal slacks.
“But casual or not,” said Estreicher, “the double-breasted pitfall will always be the cut and fit. Look out for the bulk of the extra fabric and the boxiness of the shoulders. For best look and fit, consult with a tailor. This is a fit that can be more complex than the regular 1 button suit and will benefit from some expert advice and touch ups to the waist area.”
Have fun this spring and summer playing the gentleman that combines this age-old, time-honored tradition with modern casual trends!

Lighten up Your Suits for Spring in the BBJ!
05 Mar 2014
How to lighten up your suits for Spring? Judah Estreicher of JBD Clothiers answers that question in his latest contribution to the Baltimore Business Journal! In the article titled, Why men should buy half-lined suits for spring and summer, Judah lists several reasons why half-lined suits are the way to go for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
3 benefits of half-lined suits are listed as less sweating, less lining and less layers but where can these lighter suits be found? Judah writes that these jackets would not likely be found off the rack, since “Most manufacturers won’t make their suits with anything less than fully lined simply because the lining hides the less than pretty stitching that goes on inside the jacket”. It’s the custom tailors that will do that extra workmanship to make the inside stitches look good so they don’t have to be completely hidden by a full lining.
At a custom clothier, not only can you choose what type of lining you want, but you can let yourself have fun choosing the color and pattern that you will feel good wearing!

JBD Clothier’s article on What to Wear for Holiday Parties in the Baltimore Business Journal
16 Dec 2013
Judah Estreicher, CEO of JBD Clothiers gives men 3 rules to follow when dressing for holiday parties in his second article as contributing editor to the Baltimore Business Journal.
- Don’t show up in the same clothes you wear to work. But you can’t go wrong with “a well-tailored, dark-colored suit and a sharply pressed dress shirt. Or you can wear a tuxedo inspired jacket with details like a shawl collar, long lapel, or trimming”.
- Yes it’s a party, but remember to keep it professional. If it’s a more casual affair, “consider the ever-classic cashmere sweater that looks great at any time and can be dressed up or down”.
- Get in the holiday spirit, accessorize! “Accessorize subtly with a tie, necktie, pocket-square, cufflinks, or colorful socks. And to change your look from party to holiday party, choose seasonal colors and designs, though nothing too overtly holiday themed. Think red—it’s in this season as well as being a holiday color!”

Some fashion pros warn against wearing anything too baggy under a suit. “You don’t want to stuff a pair of boxers inside your dress pants.

Estreicher is one of many fashion pros to say that underwear shouldn’t be so expensive, regardless of cut or style. “You can get a good quality pair for $15-20, but anything over $50 you will just be paying for the brand,” says Estreicher.
