Reminder of Our Commitment to You

When you walk through the doors of Christopher James Menswear in Fort Wayne, you can leave your worries about clothes matching, style misses and body consciousness behind. Leave everything to our Christopher James team and we will do our best to take care of you.

One reader never shops for clothes without his wife because he’s colorblind and likes his wife’s sense of style. We know there are other gents out there who struggle with how to put together outfits that can go from office to dinner out. Sometimes an important business meeting with a new client might keep you from making a clear choice between sports coat or suit. We’ll show you Byron suit picks that will fit you like a glove, explain the easy process of ordering a CJ semi-custom dress shirt or help you choose a pair of Paige jeans that will quickly become one of your favorite pairs.

Helping you with your style and presenting your best business or special event self are what we do best. From a stylish cap or fedora to spiffy socks and Trask shoes, to other accessories you don’t even realize you might need, leave it in the hands of the capable, observant, patient and sophisticated Christopher James team. General Douglas MacArthur said, “You are remembered for the rules you break.” Count on us to help you be a stylish rule breaker and risk taker.

See you at Christopher James soon! Stop in and let us help you choose some special new items for your fall and winter wardrobe.

Step into Winter in Style

The crisp weather has caught up to us in
Fort Wayne and there’s no escaping it. Embrace it with a few new staples for your business and weekend wardrobe. Whether you’re a bachelor out on your own for the first time who just landed his first corporate job or you’re a mature  professional whose career has been in full swing for years, Christopher James Menswear has something for you!

Are you a more library, wood and academic look type of guy? How about a new plaid Byron sport coat and a dark button-down shirt from Peter MIllar and v-necked sweater to keep you extra warm? Skip the tie, invest in a warm pair of wool trousers, pair it with dark loafers and you’re ready for your meeting.

If the slick corporate look is more your style, try a new sport coat from Byron, a smart tie or pocket square and a CJ semi-custom shirt. Slacks and lace-up dress shoes from Trask will help you walk into the board room in style.

We know that many offices these days are opting for casual looks, too. Christopher James has you covered. Consider a turtleneck under a sweater and a pair of dark Paige jeans with leather short boots. Or a Peter Millar button-down shirt with Paige jeans and loafers. Do you prefer to keep it business on top and more casual on the bottom? Go for a spiffy new CJ semi-custom button-down shirt and a sports coat to round out your look. You can’t go wrong.

Thanks for your continued business and we look forward to dressing you for the cold weather ahead. Don’t forget to sign up for our email list and we’ll keep you in the loop on upcoming events and offers. See you soon!

Say I Do to a Suit All Your Own

Purchasing a Suit VS. Renting a Tuxedo for your Wedding

These days, life moves at lightning speed, so it’s best to be prepared. Look your best on one of the most important days of your adult life and on many occasions thereafter with a classy and smart new suit.

Sure, you likely rented a tux for your prom and/or a special dance. Now that you’re getting on in life and getting married, forego the renting and opt for a suit all your own from Christopher James.

Visit our website, scroll to the bottom of the page and then hop on over to our Tuxedo Gallery. You can browse styles and accessories and put together a look — be it for rental or purchase. Or you can stop in at the store in Fort Wayne and let our expert staff guide you through recommendations about the most suitable look for you.

If the idea of wedding attire overwhelms or turns you off, think again. Once you enter through our doors, you’re in good hands. We’ll take your measurements, ask you about the look you’re after and offer suggestions.

Our suit styles and fits vary, as do the high-end brands we carry. From Coppley and Corbin suits to Samuelsohn and Paul Betenly, we can help you choose a suit that can take you from your nuptials to a job interview to a business meeting to a more somber occasion such as a funeral.


Completing the look couldn’t be any easier. You’ve come to the right place for a smart dress shirt you can wear again and again, dress shoes and perhaps a bow tie and/or pocket scarf from Carrot & Gibbs to tie your look together.

Before you say “I do,” stop in to see us. Hope to take your measurements soon!




Summer Isn’t Over Yet!

And guess what? Our sale isn’t either! Make the gloriously sunny days of summer last longer by stocking up on a few extra seasonal pieces today at Christopher James Menswear. Our sale is off the hook.

Are you going to squeeze in one more vacation before the end of August? Or perhaps you’re going on a weekend getaway soon? You can never have enough shorts, sports shirts and socks. Browse our shoes and accessories. If you’re wearing out your favorite pair of sandals, stop in and we’ll show you some from our collection.

Don’t miss the sports coats, suits, trousers and dress shirts, too. Grab a few things for your vacation(s) and we’ll help you pick out a few items to refresh your business wardrobe.

Our Christopher James team knows a thing or two about suits and can help you feel comfortable in a more tapered look. You’d be surprised how many men out there might be wearing a wrongly sized and ill-fitting suit or sports coat. Gone are the days of the baggy suit pants, long suit jacket and shoulder pads that were airplane-runway ready. Visit the store and let our staff take care of you. You relax while we take your measurements and offer options that will help you look your finest.

The great news is that once we’ve cleared the clothing racks, we’ll have room to put out our fall merchandise. We’ll worry about that. You continue in summer mode. See you soon!
