My name is Arturo Carlos Lewin, am originally from Chile. Grew up very poor. Mud house, dirt floor & all. Came to United States ILLEGALLY in 1977 and I am one lucky guy...
And, this is my story...
I have been selling things since I was 12... During high school I started selling $1250 vacumm cleaners door to door(to date the hardest job I have ever had), then at 19, I sold water filters with a multi level marketing co. and crated a downline of over 200 salespeople with over $1Million in annual sales. By 20, I was selling the 1st Alphanumeric pagers for Metagram America a fortune 500 co with over 3000 sales people. I was consistantly their Top Producer Nationwide....thats when I ran across a Custom Clothier that totally impressed me with his Clothes, Cars, Homes, Penthouses & Vegas trips.. And,I have been in the Custom Clothing business ever since 1989.
I started with a company called Perkas Custom Clothiers in Woodland Hills, CA. 2 1/2 years later we became partners & started AvenueExecutive Clothiers in Encino, CA. 3 years later we decided to go our ways. For the next 3 years...I was recruited by Custom Shirt Shops, about 88 stores nationwide. I managed their Beverly Hills store. Then I joined Montalvo on Montana in Santa Monica, CA. I was in charge of all sales, tailors & staff. Their specialty was catering to some of the biggest movie stars today & I was lucky enough to have had that opportunity to meet some of Hollywoods biggest stars. I was recruited by Tom James Clothiers. To date they are still the largest custom clothing company in the world. About $500 million dollars in annual sales. I was a Tom James Co top 3 worldwide producer almost from the start.
And, in April 2, 1997. I started Art Lewin Clothiers.
Today we are one of the leading custom clothiers in the country. We plan, coordinate & maintain your wardrobe so you are perfectly attired for any occassion. We have been dressing executives for over a decade. And, as a second-generation clothier our clients tell us that our workmanship, knowledge & service makes it readily apparent why we have been able to establish such a loyal following.
