New Orleans, LA – The Domain Companies is excited to announce the addition of Q Clothier and its casual counterpart Rye 51 to the ever-growing South Market. Following the success of its stores in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Oklahoma City, Atlanta, Tulsa, and Little Rock, Q Clothier and Rye 51 are expanding to Downtown New Orleans with their ninth location.
Q51, the parent company of Q Clothier and Rye 51, is a luxury men’s clothing retailer specializing in custom and casual apparel. With a focus on creating lasting client relationships, Q Clothier and Rye 51 have established an easy, high-quality, well-curated shopping experience. Q Clothier specializes in custom-made clothing while also offering a selection of ready-to-wear tailored pieces and accessories. Rye 51 offers an assortment of small-batch, men’s casual clothing.
“We’re excited to announce our next location in Downtown New Orleans’ South Market,” said Raja Ratan, founder and owner of Q51. “I have always loved the city for its culture, food, and most of all, its people. The Domain Companies has done an amazing job developing the area, and we feel it is the perfect location for our Q Clothier and Rye 51 brands.”
The Q Clothier process begins when patrons schedule a fitting. The initial consultation includes fabric selection, garment design, and a proprietary measurement process with a seasoned clothier who serves as a personal clothing concierge. After 4-6 weeks, clients are invited back for a final fitting to try their garments and to make note of any adjustments. Once the pattern profile is established, it is kept on file for easy reordering.
Customers looking for a more casual shopping experience can visit Rye 51, which will be situated directly next to Q Clothier and offer small-batch styles of polo shirts, knits, tees, pants, denim, outerwear, and more.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Q Clothier and Rye 51 to The Standard and South Market,” said Matt Schwartz, co-CEO of The Domain Companies, South Market’s developers. “We felt there was a need for a men’s fine clothing retailer in the area to complement the surrounding companies and businesses in Downtown New Orleans. We are looking forward to having Q51 enhance and ease the shopping experience for men in South Market, Downtown, and beyond.”
Q Clothier and Rye 51 will open in November 2019 and become a part of the 24,000 square feet of retail space located within The Standard, Domain’s luxury condominium development in South Market. It will join the newly-opened Otra Vez restaurant, Fidelity Bank, and Eustis Mortgage in its new home along O’Keefe Avenue.
