That initial interest in men’s clothing carried on through his college years at U.C. Davis, graduating with a degree in art and sociology.
This double major helped him create his niche of being able to ascertain the needs of each individual, and then help his clients look their best in a unique, creative manner.
After college, Steve was employed by a fine quality men’s specialty apparel store, where he began to learn the more intricate aspects of sales, purchasing and management. After several years in this arena, Steve made the decision to strike out on his own in 1995, and created S. Benson & Co.
The goal was to create a setting reminiscent of a men’s club, with a singular mission of delivering quality clothing with impeccable tailoring to discerning clientele.
Now on his third generation of clientelle, Steve’s reputation for developing unique wardrobes for men of all professions has grown, and he now serves customers from the Southern Oregon border to Northern CA, eastward into Nevada and south to Santa Barbara.
He has an uncanny ability to handle whatever your needs may be - from custom tailoring to suits, shirts, chinos, polos, casual or knitwear - and setting your wardrobe up exceptionally in a way that highlights your features in the most comfortable manner possible.
Steve’s educated visual and aesthetic sense ensures that each client is dressed in clothing that integrates with their personality.
The ultimate goal is to build a wardrobe that fits the client, is balanced with their lifestyle, and enhances their overall image.
Benson says that his business is “a return to classic service, but with a modern twist.”
He personally invites you to pay him a visit, and discover the difference that professional service and selection can make.
In order to give you the full attention you deserve, personal appointments are suggested.
