The first thing you notice about Logan Stewart are his clothes. In tan slacks and light button-down shirt -- not a wrinkle to be found on either -- he's sporting a casual classic look on this particular day, adding a touch of flair in his matching waist-length coat and hat.
Indeed, clothes make this man. And that's a good thing, since Stewart, who has experience working at and managing national men's clothing stores, recently opened his own business, Next Level By Logan Men's Fashion in on Redan Road, anchored by .
Stewart shared more of his story with Patch recently:
Patch: You don't see a lot of men's-only clothing stores around. Why did you start this business?
Stewart: I guess from my past employers, I've always found a middle gap between what guys wanted and what they were able to get. I'm trying to fill that gap. I consider myself midway in reference to pricing, top of the line in quality.
Patch: What age group are trying to attract to the store?
Stewart: No age in particular. It can be anybody -- just the well-dressed man.
Patch: Why did you decide to open your store in this particular shopping center?
Stewart: and the foot traffic. It's just phenomenal.
Patch: What kind of feel do you want people to get when they come in?
Stewart: I want them to get the feeling they're in a quality atmosphere. I believe customer service is number one in business.
Patch: What did you learn from working at S&K and D&K?
Stewart: Most of all I learned customer service is number one. If you don't make people feel welcome, they're not coming back.
Patch: How do you help people when they walk through the door?
Stewart: They know the look they want, they may not know how to put it together.
