His background is in business and beer, but this Edmontonian found a niche in custom suits. The designs have been worn by famous actors, musicians and athletes.https://t.co/pQGDnRuIBl pic.twitter.com/TNBSLuEofJ

Sean Farmer’s love for fashion and travel is how his bespoke custom-tailored suit business got its start in Edmonton.
Farmer says the idea to create “Suits by Curtis Eliot” came to him while he was on a trip in Vietnam, which is known for its custom-tailoring.
Despite a handful of bespoke tailors already in Edmonton and his own lack of a fashion background (he owns an events company and founded the 14-year-old Edmonton International BeerFest), Farmer got into the business of men’s suits.
