We're More Than Just Suits!

We’re here to help you enjoy getting dressed for all that you do in life.

Bobbie Long Style Coach | Personal Stylist | Haberdasher & Co. | Vancouver, BC

Our owner, Bobbie Long is a Certified Image Consultant and Men’s Fashion Style Expert, she has been exclusively dressing men for over ten years, and has had the pleasure of helping hundreds of fellows transform their style, suit up for the first time, get ready for a special event, or stand at the end of an aisle at a wedding. Whatever you need to get dressed for, she can help you save time and money, so you can show up to whatever life has in store for you, looking and feeling your best.

During her time in retail, Bobbie had the opportunity to be trained by veterans of the men’s fashion industry, which provided her with an in-depth knowledge of fit, tailoring, fabrics, styles, and quality of construction. This helped hone her skills and deepen her appreciation of the industry and all the men that could use her help.

That is what we’re here to help you with. Depending on what level your current wardrobe is at, we can either completely transform your look and help you develop a style that you love, and makes sense for your lifestyle and budget. Or we can elevate your style with a few tweaks that help enhance what you already have. We also offer Special Event, Wedding Styling & Personal Shopping
