As both the president and owner of Marc Allen, Inc., Marc Streisand has a long-standing passion for the custom clothing business. Marc's career began in the women's department at Wallach's Specialty Stores in 1985, though he quickly discovered that menswear was his niche. He hasn't turned back since.
With over 25 years of industry experience, Marc brings his clients specialized expertise in menswear. For Marc, designing a custom wardrobe is an art form. Every part of the process - from choosing fabrics to overseeing the final fitting - is of paramount importance to him. Nothing gives Marc greater pleasure than transforming raw cloth into a custom outfit that directly impacts a client's lifestyle.
"I love what I do. I get to make a difference in the quality of people's lives by transforming their appearance to match their inner power."
Jim FortierChief of Staff
Jim's relationship with the store and the custom clothing domain spans decades. Before it was known as Marc Allen, the store opened in 1941 as Briggs Limited. Over 20 years ago, Jim launched his career as a part of the Briggs team before relocating to Ralph Lauren in Boston, where he further developed his exceptional instinct for merchandising. He brought his expertise back to Briggs Providence in 2005, which was revitalized as Marc Allen later that year.
As Chief of Staff, Jim wears many hats. He is the creative brain behind the ever-changing store layout, as well as a buyer and stylist. His penchant for fun is hard to ignore, but when it comes to taking care of his clients, Jim brings unparalleled focus to ensure that their every need is met. Jim also has a passion for finding new items for the store. His merchandizing eye allows him to spot and handpick the lavish and rare pieces that define Marc Allen clothing.
"There is something very exciting about hunting for the newest fashions and bringing them to your clients."
