Our Story

DSC_7550-2 2

For Aaron Comes, founder and president of Frederick Lynn, an interest in clothing began at an early age. Each morning he would watch his father dress in a suit and tie for work. He even remembers how his mother would hand-press his father’s shirts every day. Between them, Aaron’s parents helped cultivate his meticulous eye and keen sartorial instincts.

After receiving a degree in Marketing and Textiles, Aaron moved to Chicago and worked for the world’s largest custom clothing manufacturer. Eight years later, having gained strong knowledge of what men want in their clothing and how they like to shop, he decided to launch his own company to fill a void in the current market place.

In the third year of Frederick Lynn (the name is a combination of his parents’ middle names) operating as a direct business, Aaron opened a 2,200 square foot showroom, allowing him to offer one-on-one appointments, exclusive amenities in an intimate and   relaxed environment. Filling a niche not only as a luxury clothier, but as a lifestyle brand.


What makes us different?

Our team is small. We’re involved in every stage of the process… such as measuring, creating the designs, production, selling, fitting, marketing and taking out the garbage. When someone buys from us, they work with us.

  1. We are former members of the corporate world.  (We know the hidden secrets of the industry.)
  2. We are entrepreneurs at our core.  (The old model was broken, we fixed it.)
  3. We believe our clients are looking for something different.  (We have different.)
  4. We think outside the box and find solutions.  (We’re not square.)
  5. We love technology and efficiency.  (If we don’t have the answer, we have smart geek friends to help.)
  6. We take our work very seriously, not ourselves.  (We promise to not be boring.)
  7. We are a growing business, building a business around our clients. (Tell us how we can help.)
  8. We will tell the truth. (“made-to-measure” is NOT “custom” or “bespoke”)

Our Process

Frederick Lynn specializes in hand tailored apparel for men, women and children. We offer a “made-to-measure” as well as a true “custom” garment. To complete the look, we offer a selection of unique furnishings and accessories. We schedule client appointments in advance to best prepare for your appointment. (New clients should budget 1 – 1.5 hours for a new appointment.)

1. Consultation

Our goal is to maximize and make sense of your wardrobe. We discuss wants and needs, while putting a wardrobe plan together that makes sense for you.

2. Choose Fabrics

We source the world’s finest fabrics from traditional to high end fashion. We also carry several unique, one-of-a-kind fabric collections.

3. Style & Design

After the fabrics are chosen, we discuss style and design.

4. Measurements

Up to 40 measurements will be taken to create an outfit.

5. Lead Time

Depending on the fabric and “make” chosen, lead time can take 4-8 weeks once the order is placed.  50% deposit required on all custom clothing.

6. Fitting

Once the clothing arrives there will be a fitting appointment to ensure the correct fit.

7. Final Delivery

After the fitting appointment the clothing will be ready for pick up in a week or less and the final 50% is collected.
