Frederick Lynn owner Aaron Comes was chosen as one of CS Modern Luxury Men of Style!
MEN of STYLE
“To be honest, I really don’t follow designers,” says Aaron Comes. One wouldn’t expect that quote to come from a Man of Style, and certainly not one who runs his own custom clothing business. But Comes, owner of Frederick Lynn Haberdasshere and maker of the finest tailored clothing in Chicago, is most definitely his own man. From modest beginnings in Sioux Falls, S.D., to his current perch atop the city;s sartorial tree, both Comes’ career path and personal style embody a pursuit of excellence. “I am a product of seeing my parents’ work ethic, and my dad, he always wore a suit and tie to work every day,” says Comes. “I remember, even when I was little, shopping with my dad and trying on sport coats.” Comes still favors a buttoned-up look (fortunately for him, all samples in Frederick Lynn’s showroom are his size), but his father of three is partial to dressing down on the weekends, usually in AG or Diesel jeans and a pair of Ferragamo high-tops. So if he isn’t looking to the runways of Milan and London, what does spark Comes’ creativity? “Ultimately, my inspiration comes form my clients.”
“My wife got me a pair of custom cuff links with my twin daughters’ names on them.:
“George Clooney. I think every guy wants to be him.”
“What’s most important to me is fit, fabric, and quality.”
