Showroom Stylist & Key Holder
SuitShop's Chicago Showroom is looking for a full-time Showroom Stylist and Key Holder to add to the team. We welcome all experienced people passionate about fashion, suiting, e-commerce, retail and the wedding industry to consider this role.
About This Position
SuitShop is a US-based e-commerce suiting company–the first online brand of its kind, offering high quality, size- and gender-inclusive suiting at an affordable price point. With three brick-and-mortar showrooms in Denver, Chicago, and Philadelphia along with tech-driven online sizing solutions and best-in-class customer service, SuitShop is experiencing record growth and is excited to bring new Stylists onto the team. SuitShop is focused on career development, and all team members access unique opportunities to participate in and learn about all aspects of an apparel tech start-up.
SuitShop offers $199 suiting made for anybody & every body. Originally named The Groomsman Suit, SuitShop was born out of co-founder and designer Jeanne’s (not-so-great) experience suiting up her own wedding group in rental tuxedos. Childhood best friend Diana, graduate of MIT’s Sloan School of Business, joined to pioneer a new path in special-event suiting.
Since then, SuitShop has secured a place amongst the leading wedding industry brands, expanded to serve special occasions beyond weddings as well as everyday suiting and more, and opened three physical showrooms. We’ve grown an incredibly strong online presence and suited up over 100k people. And we’re just getting started!
