Who Is Paul Fredrick? Jim

Who is Paul Fredrick? We’d like you to meet Jim.


Over the years we’ve been fortunate enough to get to know some of our customers. Gentleman from all over the U.S., representing just about every profession you can imagine, each with his own personal fashion of choice. The one commonality? Paul Fredrick is their style of choice.


Meet Jim. Jim is the president of an insurance agency and lives in South Central Pennsylvania. He’ll soon be celebrating his fortieth wedding anniversary (congratulations, Jim!) and in his spare time he enjoys taking family vacations with his three daughters and four grandchildren. Jim only recently started exploring color and pattern, but now he won’t go back to any other look… or any other clothing company!

Here’s what Jim told us about his style and why he loves Paul Fredrick:


Name: Jim Martin

Age: 62

Hometown: Lancaster, PA

Current Location: Lancaster, PA

Job Title: President, Susquehanna Insurance

Hobbies: Fishing, hiking, family beach vacations, spending time with the grandkids

Personal Quote: I think life is most fulfilling when one incorporates a good measure of faith, family, and friends.


PF: Describe your sense of style.

J: Until my daughter gave some depth to my myopic perspective of style, I wore plain, generic styles and colors. I am beginning to venture into the wider, more fun world of color and variety.


PF: On an average day, what do you wear to work?

J: Until recently, my style was very conservative business casual. Blues, grays, and blacks in pants. Shirts were pretty much no pattern or muted pattern oxford, blues, white, and grays. Plain loafer or lace-up black shoes. Now I enjoy a wider variety of colors, patterns and designs in shirts; I wear a wider variety of pant colors, and I love a wide variety of shoe colors and designs.


PF: Which 3 staple pieces should every man have in his wardrobe?

J: Pants, shoes, and shirts… Is there anything else?


PF: What is the best piece of fashion advice you’ve ever received?

J: “Try it Dad, you might be surprised at how good it looks!”


PF: What do you like most about Paul Fredrick?

J: I really enjoy the incredible variety of designs and colors of high quality merchandise at reasonable prices. I am not a shopper so I love the ability to shop online at home… And it is so easy to navigate!


PF: What are the Paul Fredrick pieces you can’t live without?

J: If I had to pick one, it would be shoes. Having said that, the thought of going back to my prior men’s retailer for any product is depressing.


Jim’s favorite shoes from this season’s catalog are:

FHK113D    FHK116D    FHK118D    FHK122B                     FHK105D

    Well Jim, it is an honor and pleasure to meet the man responsible for me spending a fortune at PF. Love the styles, quality, sales and your customer service is superior. I remember when I stumbled onto the site with the purchase of the $19 white dress shirts. I said to myself that I was only going to purchase a couple ties and THAT WAS IT! LOL! Just so you know, I like the shoes here also, but I wear size 15. So, if you want me to purchase them too, you have to make them a little larger than 13.

  2. I am a very conservative dresser.I have been looking for an outlet of fine clothes for a long time.I was really glad when I came across your site and found that the style of clothes you offer was what I wanted.I have purchased many shirts from your company because they have great style, feel and look great.I have received many compliments when I wear your clothes.Please continue to do in supplying me with the finest
    menswear and I will continue to be customer.

    Well Jim, I want to piggyback on Mr. D.Terry comments. It is an honor and pleasure to meet the man responsible for me as well spending a fortune at PF.I love the styles, quality, sales and your customer service is superior. I have to agree with everything he said. I couldn’t have put it any better in my own words. I to can remember when I stumbled onto the site about 6 or 7 years ago. I am not sure what I first purchase or, if it was something in particular that I was looking for, all I know is that a few thousand $ and several years later my wardrobe have very few clothes in it that’s not label PF. I will never wear any other dress shoe. I have purchased many pairs of PF shoes and I am very satisfied with them all. Normally I wear a size 12 but, I only needs a 11.5 from PF and it fits perfect.
    My son and I are about the same size but, he would only wear sport clothes until a few months ago when he was invited to a wedding and ask if I had something dresses that he could wear. I let him wear my sea foam color seersucker sport coat with that has the silk paisley twist under the collar and the matching tie. he posted photos of himself on his face book and I couldn’t help but to smile when I read some of the comments from people inquiring where he get it from. Paul Fredrick custom for life.

  6. Thank you, Alfonza! That is fantastic to hear!!
