Samson Shirt & Suitmakers - Steve Pelman

Steve Pelman

Steve Pelman from Samson’s is one of the very few established tailoring designers in Vancouver. Since 1973, Steve as a cutter for hand tailors has accumulated knowledge of fitting issues towards arguably the world’s best garments. He is known for defining the difference between suit “wrinkles” from poor fit and “rumples” from casual or tired cloth. For building reasonable wardrobes as men’s “Brand Aids” in a world of boys’ suits that are common as hasty band-aids. He says, “Delayed gratification, curiosity, and study is for men”.

Steve’s goals are to democratizing proper fit via online training and using the global economy for mid-range markets.

His passion is to memorialize tailoring standards nearly lost in the European wars. As well to extend the potential of gentlemen as competent & compassionate when they dress “to” respect. He intends to be forefront in men’s pride so they don’t take dressing too seriously, so they can complete their wardrobes while they study to invest in themselves through better life skills and habits.
