With his deep passion for all the finer things, Joe Chay used his well-seasoned knowledge of the custom clothing industry to establish his own custom menswear line, Bello Verde, in October of 2012. Bello Verde is a full service menswear retailer. Our custom-made garments are manufactured in the highest quality regards, yet we remain one of the most value-centric brands in the industry. We also offer a wide range of name-brand men’s accessories to compliment each custom look.
Joe started his career in custom clothing almost 10 years ago, getting his start with Astor & Black. He was consistently one of the top salespeople in the company, year after year, eventually training and on-boarding new clothiers and working alongside the founder in operations. In 2012, after a private equity take-over at A&B, Joe decided to break off on his own. He valued the connections he had made over the years and wanted to continue servicing his clients the way he saw fit. This in the end turned out to be a business savvy move as Astor & Black claimed bankruptcy in August of 2013.
Recognizing the immense opportunity at hand, Joe made the huge financial gamble of purchasing Astor & Black out of bankruptcy in early 2014, with the hope of reviving the still sought out brand. It was a success. Former clients who were so abruptly cut off from A&B now had the chance to buy from their favorite clothier again.
Now with 2 highly regarded custom clothing companies, Joe has made the decision to re-brand Bello Verde into a custom wholesale company for other clothiers who are coming up in the world of men's custom suiting. Bello Verde creates the finest custom garments in the world. It is our belief that with superior quality tailoring, timely manufacturing, and a fully functional, back-end ordering system, your customers will find the utmost satisfaction in their custom product. Along with exceptional clothing, the Bello Verde team is always here to help you with any branding, pricing, or manufacturing questions, as well as assistance and guidance in producing any additional branded materials needed for your company.
Our mission is to make you look good, so you can be sure your customers look great!
