John Requa

I  am John Requa, founder of Johnny Custom. I have years of experience in the menswear industry. It’s all I have really done beginning as a young boy, working in my father’s store in Brockville, Ontario. I’ve always had a love for men’s fashion, appreciating trends, eye-catching color and quality fabrics. Years later, I worked with Arrow Shirts in Toronto and then with Eaton’s as their men’s suit buyer. Fortunately, I ended up in Halifax and started my own clothing agency. For 30 years, I teamed up with Canada’s premier men’s clothing maker selling to the finest stores in the USA, from Maine to Florida, as well as Atlantic Canada.

Finally I established  Johnny Custom. In my latter years attending New York shows, I observed a shift in how men are buying their clothing. They are going to a personal custom clothier for unique individual clothing, selection and convenience. I love working one-on-one and providing my customers with the best service possible. I know this business and nothing gives me more pleasure than to develop a new relationship and sell a perfect fitting garment with flare and value. It’s all about the fit!

Put your trust in me. You’re going to look good and feel great!
Suits are my business!
