For Aaron Comes, founder, and owner of Frederick Lynn, an interest in clothing began at an early age. Growing up in South Dakota, he would watch his father dress in a suit and tie for work each day. He even remembers how his mother would hand-press his father’s shirts. Between them, Aaron’s parents helped cultivate his meticulous eye and keen sartorial instincts.
After receiving degrees in Marketing and Textiles, Aaron moved to Chicago in 2003 and began working for the world’s largest made to measure clothing manufacturer. Having cultivated a private clientele the past seven years, Aaron gained a strong knowledge of what men wanted in their clothing and how they want to shop. The decision was made to launch his own company and fill a void in the current marketplace.
In September 2010, Frederick Lynn Haberdasshere was started from the top of Aaron’s garage operating a direct business model seeing customers in their home or office. In the third year of Frederick Lynn (the names of his parents’ middle names) operating as a direct business, Aaron built out and opened a 2,200 square foot showroom downtown Chicago in the Gold Coast. Thus, 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.
