Men's clothing with a personal touch


Ronnie Bailes of The Men’s Shop in York says he used to be a men’s clothier – selling everything from socks and hats to dress coats and shirts. Nowadays he says he’s a T-shirt store that sells suits.

“People are more casual now so I’ve expanded into sportswear,” said Bailes, who wears a suit and tie every day. What hasn’t changed is the service – like one-day alterations. “People are amazed we have that capability.”

Bailes supports Family Trust’s Buy Local, Bank Local campaign. “We reinvest in a lot of ways,” he said. “When people support us, it gives us an opportunity to support the community.”
