Being a tailor for J. Reid Menswear isn’t just a job; it turns out to be somewhat of a legacy. Karen Hamel has been with J. Reid for 39 years.

She was trained by her Aunt Joyce who was an original employee and tailor for the company with it’s inception in 1965. Joyce eventually passed the torch, or more appropriately, her needle and thread, onto Karen, and she has been here ever since.

In 2000, Karen started her own tailoring business out of her home as well as working for J. Reid Menswear.
