About The Clothes Post

Clothes Post Ralph LaurenThe Clothes Post started in 1962 in the same location it holds today in downtown Petoskey, providing traditional and updated traditional menswear with an emphasis on service.

With over 40 years of experience in mens garment fitting and tailoring, The Clothes Post staff are diligent about helping customers find the right fit in quality menswear.

We also provide free gift wrapping and, if we don't have your desired product in the store, we will special order it if it's available.

Our Mission Statement: "Providing the right product with the best service we can provide in fulfilling your menswear needs."



Meet Jeff Pagel, Owner

jeff-pagelWhen I started in the menswear business, leisure suits and Nehru jackets were the big rage, along with 100% polyester double-knit slacks, suits and sport coats. Flare bottom slacks were starting to take hold as well as wide ties. Some styles haven't changed much since 1970.

It's been fun for myself to see the changes. Since I was 12 or 13 years old, I always had an interest in mens clothing. As a young boy, I used to follow my older brother around when he worked in a local menwear store, the store where I eventually got my start and continue with my passion to this day. That store is no longer there but it was across the street from where The Clothes Post is today.

I am fortunate to be living in the town where I was born and grew up... Petoskey. I feel very fortunate to be in the business that I love. I enjoy the many relationships that I have had over the 30 years at The Clothes Post. I am also very proud of my two grown children, Lindsey and Matthew, and my grandsons Maxwell and Jacob.

My goal is to stay in this business as long as I can. If I can help my customers with their menswear needs, I'll feel good about myself and know that I have done my job.
