About us

Dobell - Famously British tailoring in the U.S.

Founded in 2003 in Great Britain, Dobell began with a clear aim: to offer designer British formal wear at a revolutionary price to anyone, anywhere.

Mike Dobell had the idea whilst at university in England and in need of a tuxedo for an upcoming party. The cost of buying one was too high and the idea of renting a tux that had already been worn 100 times didn't appeal. He was amazed at how hard it was to find a nicely fitting suit at a fair price.

Dobell was started to create the solution. Drawing inspiration from the famous tailoring heritage of London, we started small and developed a core range of stylish and affordable formal wear made to suit everyone's size, shape and wallet. Quickly this sold out and we noticed a number of requests for our products in the U.S.

With this, our stateside business was born. Dobell USA now offers one of the largest ranges of affordable formal wear in the U.S. whilst retaining the same values and famously British tailoring that the business is built on.

How do we do it? By designing in-house, being online only rather than having expensive physical stores and engaging with customers directly, we’re able to provide higher-quality, better-looking tailoring at a fraction of the usual price.

We believe that buying a stylish suit should be easy and affordable for everyone. It should leave you looking and feeling good, without breaking the bank.
