Meyer Pants World Renowned – Now in Indiana

Spring's Best Pant: Meyer

Meyer Hosen, an internationally renowned family-based company, has been designing and making men’s trousers for over 50 years. With the vast experience, the company knows all too well the requirements that a good pair of pants should have. The company uses different natural textile fibers for its outer fabrics, which make it easy for you to choose the most ideal pair for every season.

Cotton-made pants

During spring, the temperature in most areas is more pleasant, making cotton fabrics an ideal choice. In fact, clothes made from cotton fabrics are comfortable to wear in all four seasons. To ensure that you stay in style during the spring season, Meyer Hosen has put up a variety of cotton-made pants that are not only comfortable, but are also stylish and easy to care for.














Ceramica-made pants

Besides the pants made from cotton fabric, pants made from ceramica fabric in 5 pocket model are some of the trendiest and spring’s best pants. Meyer has made its pants in such a way that makes them highly versatile. This means that you can wear them with formal shirts at work during the day, and pair them with a sport coat for a night out and still look the part.

Besides being versatile, pants made from ceramica fabric are wrinkle resistant, shrink resistant, fade-resistant and breathable. What’s more is that this type of fabric is antibacterial, which means that with it? You have an excellent odor control option.

It’s also worth noting that Meyer Hosen has also ensured that you never run out of pockets to keep securely your valuables. You can choose from a wide selection of pants with a total of 5 convenient pockets.










Obviously, there are many five-pocket models on the market, but the ones from Meyer Hosen come with more distinctive features. This doesn’t only apply for denim pants, but also in other fabrics as well. It also helps greatly that Meyer Hosen features pants with a special kind of tailored stretching waistband that perfectly moves along with your body.

Giddy Up Tyler Eifert!

Tyler Eifert Rocking a Christopher James Custom Coat at the Derby!

They say that clothes make the man but we think Tyler Eifert is making our custom sport coat rock at this year’s Kentucky Derby! Gladson silk and wool fabric and customized Derby print lining was a great choice and Tyler wore it well.

Can’t promise you’ll be an All Pro NFL tight end but we can make you look your best with a custom suit, sport coat or pant designed by Christopher James Menswear.

Thanks Tyler and good luck this coming season!

Love That Custom Lining

Samuelsohn Ice Wool: maximum performance and comfort

Meet your new favorite suit

It’s the latest in innovation and exclusive to Samuelsohn and available at Christopher James Menswear, Indiana’s Samuelsohn HQ for suits, sport coats and trousers in Fort Wayne.


With a wool that maintains optimal body temperature by holding or reflecting heat as needed, this suit is a must have for any and every season.

“Shocked” rather than treated to combat the elements, this material repels water, stains, and provides stretch for the maximum performance and comfort.

Samuelsohn is proud to be the official tailored clothing outfitter of the LA Galaxy, one of Major League Soccer’s most decorated clubs. Players co-designed their suits selecting details that expressed their individual personalities. From a three-piece suit with a lapel vest to a double-breasted peak to a straight up single button notch, the players became stylists working along side our master tailor. WATCH THE VIDEO:

Congratulate Vince! 50 Years at Ft. Wayne’s Menswear HQ

Been here 50 and still is Nifty!

Italy’s loss was our gain as Vince Speciale started working in the United States 50 years ago! Vince, who came to us from Burgio, Sicily, Italy has been a fixture in Fort Wayne doing tailoring (and magic tricks for the kids) for 50 years and is still going strong! The Energizer Bunny has nothing on him as Vince continues to share his tailoring skills with another generation at Christopher James. Though he likes his work, he LOVES his family and many customers whom he calls his friends.

Please take a moment to stop by the store Thursday from 10 – 5:30 to wish Vince “Happy Anniversary” and grab a piece of cake. If you are lucky, he will do some magic tricks for you, as well…

Happy Anniversary, Vince!

We love you,

Your family at Christopher James
