JAMES CITY-Men looking for custom suits and tuxedos will soon have another option in Greater Williamsburg.

A new business, Andre Julius-Men’s Custom Suits & Accessories, is opening on Saturday, June 11 in New Town. The establishment will be located at 4345 New Town Ave., Suite 107A in the same building as Paul’s Deli.

Owner Andre McLaughlin said he grew up attending church, “and I have always been accustomed to dressing up and wearing a suit.”

As he got older, McLaughlin found it challenging to find a suit that fit properly.

“I thought it would be cool to have a custom suit and a custom shoe store right here in Williamsburg,” he said. “It’s always been a dream to own my own suit company, but this will be on another level. The suits will be exclusively made for the person.”

The business will be open by appointment only. Patrons will start with a consultation that includes measurements, then will work together with McLaughlin and his team to design the garments they would like.

Andre Julius-Men’s Custom Suits & Accessories will carry men’s suits, tuxedos, dress shirts, trousers, coats, ties, shoes, and other items. Eventually, custom women’s wear will be added on to the business.

“I want to provide affordable custom garments with a high-quality experience and fabrics,” said McLaughlin, who is also the owner of Elevate Marketing Group. “I have a couple ‘celebrity’ brand ambassadors who will be endorsing my garments. I will be revealing both in the very near future.”

A grand opening and open house for Andre Julius-Men’s Custom Suits & Accessories will be announced at a later date. For more information on the new business, visit its Facebook page.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
