Services will be held Saturday in Fairburn, Ga., for James Tuman 3rd, retired president of Lanier Clothes, a division of Oxford Industries.
Tuman, 65, died June 20 following a long battle with lung cancer.
He spent 32 years with Lanier Clothes in a number of key positions, including the company’s first expatriate employee, where, in 1988, he served as general manager of operations in Mérida, Mexico. He became vice president of manufacturing in 1995 and in 2006 was elevated to president, a position he retained until he retired in 2010.
According to Oxford, Tuman’s “keen business acumen, exceptional leadership and tireless dedication to the company and its employees and customers were constants. Jim was a devoted man; devoted to his wife, sons, family, friends and company. Jim was a compassionate man who lived to serve others and didn’t rest until he knew their needs were met. Jim was a servant leader throughout his life and career. He taught his sons and grandsons that one measure of a man is how he treats other people.”
He is survived by his wife, Sandy; sons Peter Hogan and James Tuman 4th; his mother, Virginia and stepfather Bryan Lash; a sister; stepsister, and two grandchildren.
A celebration of Tuman’s life will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Chapel of Parrott Funeral Home in Fairburn, Ga. The family will receive friends from 1:30 until the service. There is also an online guest book at parrottfuneralhome.com.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

The @dior-sponsored @guggenheim international gala pre-party has a history of drawing cool-girl musical acts to serenade the crowd –– and last night was no exception. @haimtheband performed songs both new and old, and lured a star-studded audience with the likes of Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Mamoudou Athie and more. #wwdeye (📷: @lexieblacklock)
In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
