"When I am my most beautiful self, I am dressed in HAJ Designs.”
“As the Chief Executive Officer of the Executive Leadership Council, the baddest brothers and sisters on the planet, I represent the most senior African Americans in corporate America. Working with Haj in designing my tuxedoes/suits for our various high-profile events throughout the years has been a joy. Haj is extremely knowledgeable regarding both European and American fashion trends and works in a spirit of collaboration with me so we can make sure the fit and cut of each outfit is precise and projects the powerful message I need to portray as a leader and executive. He puts customer service at a premium and does whatever possible to make sure you look and feel your best. I would recommend Haj to any of my colleagues. As a person whose mission it is to recognize, support, and facilitate excellence for diverse leaders in the corporate sphere, recommending Haj’s excellence in designer fashions is an easy call!"
“Haj is an artist when it comes to clothing! He has designed and created some incredible pieces for me from business wear to formal attire. Every time that I wear one of Haj's designs, I look and feel like a million dollars (and receive the compliments to reinforce this feeling). Once you wear a tailor-made design from Haj, it's hard to wear "off the rack" clothes again.”
“Haj is a master at what he does because of his skill as a craftsman. More importantly - he listens! Different business people require different designs based on personal style, geography, industry, and customs. I have been in and around medical device sales from territory representative to Executive Vice President for the Americas to our current consulting practice. Meeting a customer or client in Atlanta or New York requires completely different attire than our clients in the Southwest United States or Europe. Haj understands the challenges of this complexity. He listens to his client's challenges, personal preferences, and business environment and builds an incredible wardrobe that compliments one's body type while earning that client compliments, admiration, and envy!"
HAJ is top notch and # 1 in Chicago’s men and women tailored designs as far as I am concerned! He combines the perfect fit with equivalent taste in material and style in every garment he designs. There is visibly a strong sense of confidence that goes into each one of Haj’s garments because I feel it when I wear his clothing and I see it in the attitude and mood of Haj’s other clients. I receive compliments each time I wear a Haj design and I have been wearing suits for over 50 years. So it is no need to tell you I feel real good when I am sporting a Haj creation."
“Haj is a very talented designer. He executes in a timely manner. His niche is that he can not only find the correct fit and size, but he can tailor to an individual’s personality as well. I am very proud to wear the end product.”
“I am continually amazed to see how his eye for style can create a one-of-a-kind look both in and out of the boardroom. His suggestion to go with a midnight blue tuxedo for my black tie affairs is a big hit! Haj exemplifies sprezzatura in all of his creations.”
“I have purchased tailor-made apparel on Seville Row, New York, and Chicago. I have never in all that time experienced the attention to detail or finer craftsmanship and materials than I have with HAJ Designs. Mr. Gueye was responsible and available for every step. His dedication and style can be seen in every garment he styles.”
“What people note the most is the eye catching design, superior quality, and how well my clothes fit me. It makes me feel very special; especially with the added professionalism and the one-on-one attention Haj gives me.”
“I started purchasing my business attire from Haj a couple of years ago and, since then; I have not been able to go back to purchasing ‘off the rack’. Clothes that were once a part of my ‘regular rotation’ prior to meeting Haj, are now collecting dust in my closet or have been donated.
The fit, quality, and style of his clothes are immeasurable. Also, Haj’s customer service, level of patience, and attention to detail has me consistently adding additional items to my wardrobe (which has now expanded to Haj’s casual wear.) Haj is a true perfectionist.
I have been recommending Haj to all of my friends who value high quality and fashion. If I had a dollar for every compliment I have received while wearing something designed by Haj…”
“I’m a big man who has a problem finding well fitting and good quality suits. Haj solved the problem for me. He found a style I didn’t even know I had! Now, I buy all my shirts and suits exclusively from HAJ Designs.”
“I was never a suit wearer, until I met Haj. He told me that I just didn’t have the right suit. Well 10 suits later, I have to agree that I was not wearing the right suit, or for that matter, I didn’t know the right tailor. Haj is now the only tailor I would ever contract to make my suits or any of my fashion needs. My experiences with Haj have always been wonderful and I look forward to being ‘suited’ by Haj for many years to come. In my opinion, there is no other!”
“I have trained all my life and consequently, when it comes to clothes, I am hard to fit. Thus, throughout my career, more than two decades now, I have worn only tailor-made suits. Recently, I was introduced to Haj Designs. I have come to know the work of several clothiers over the years--none compare to the Haj experience. Three things stand out most among the many fine aspects of Haj's work. First is craftsmanship, which is the foundation. Prior to Haj, having a suit made seemed to always entail three to five fittings to get it right, even with my longest standing tailor relationships. Haj executed with one fitting on my first suit and based on that has been able to produce perfectly fitting suits and shirts of the highest quality sight unseen. As a busy executive this is extraordinarily valuable capability. Second, is Haj's holistic approach. The Haj experience is not about fulfilling one-off needs. Instead, the Haj experience is about helping his client over time build, evolve, and care for a wardrobe equipping him or her for different seasons, uses, and occasions. Finally and perhaps most importantly, is Haj's sense of style and his ability to meld his sense and that of his client's to produce a distinctive look truly tailored to the individual--the attire is Haj and the attire is yours. The bottom line is that I could not be more pleased or offer a stronger endorsement.”
"…Haj remade me in minutes… I came in for a fitting and walked out with a winner. I been wearing my HAJ Designs' suites with style, with comfort and with joy…"
