In a society dominated by casual dress and mall shopping, The Brass Horn is a throwback to a more sophisticated time when people cared about the way they looked and specialty stores were the only places one could shop for men’s apparel. The combination of quality merchandise, exceptional service, and an experienced sales team elevate The Brass Horn into a category of its own. George, Ryan, and the staff all have a vested interest in making sure that their clients leave looking great and feeling confident. From custom orders to special appointments, The Brass Horn cares about each client’s individual needs and helps them get exactly what they want. For an unparalleled shopping experience, visit the Brass Horn.
What separates the ordinary from the exceptional is quality and attention to detail. Our dedication to quality is apparent the moment you walk through the front door. Carrying some of the most recognized brands in the men’s clothing business isn’t the mission, but a byproduct of scouring the markets for merchandise worthy of the finest men’s stores in the country. In today’s casual society, a shirt and tie are not always required for events, as they once were. This is an opportunity to set yourself apart from the crowd. Look at your clothing as an investment. Top brands like Hart Schaffner Marx, Jack Victor, and Robert Talbott line the shelves of the tailored clothing department, helping you look your best for that interview or wedding – not only tomorrow, but for years to come.
In addition to tailored clothing, we also offer a vast array of unique sportswear to suit many different tastes. More traditional lines like Peter Millar, Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Bahama, and Scott Barber are sure to satisfy more conservative men, while fashion forward lines like Robert Graham, Rufus, Thomas Dean, and Jake Agave are available for a more aggressive clientele. No matter what category you fall into, we have quality merchandise that will last beyond this season’s trend.
George Streckfuss opened The Brass Horn in Brettwood Village in the Fall of 1990. George was already familiar with the men’s clothing business, having previously worked for the men’s specialty chain Bachrach’s, as well as the independent retailer, Peddlers – located in downtown Decatur. George’s experience at Peddlers opened his eyes to the possibility of a future location in downtown Decatur, where he eventually moved The Brass Horn to in 1993. This transition continues to justify itself as one of the best decisions George has made for the business. The significant presence of professionals located in or near the downtown Decatur area gave the Brass Horn greater exposure to its target audience.
In October 1995, Ryan Spurlock joined the staff at the store, and the beginnings of a partnership were born. Ryan began accompanying George to market at 16 years old, where he realized his true passion for business. In 2003, George offered Ryan a manager’s position, and in 2005–ten years after they started working together–they became business partners.
