LOS ANGELES — Klein Epstein & Parker is taking made-to-measure to the masses.
After starting with one store on Robertson Boulevard in West Hollywood two years ago, the Los Angeles-based men’s wear retailer is branching out to a third location in the fashionable San Francisco neighborhood of Hayes Valley on Dec. 5 and has plans to swell to 100 locations, mostly via franchise, over the next seven years. All the while, Klein Epstein & Parker is committed to widening the audience for made-to-measure clothing by attracting young men — and later, women and boys — to the service by keeping prices for personalized suits under $1,000.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
