“I design clothes so that people viewing the garment will have an irresistible urge to know more about the individual.”

Osman worked on the team that brought us The Jay Pritzker Pavilion, Nichols Bridgeway, Rock N Roll McDonald’s – Chicago and many other beautifully-designed structures. Here he grew to appreciate the aesthetics of design and the creative process. After years of designing with concrete and steel, he left the industry to pursue his true passion of custom clothing design.
Like any beautifully designed building, Osman believes a man ought to stand tall with confidence, elegance and balance. “I design clothes so that people viewing the garment will have an irresistible urge to know more about the individual.” He frequently consults companies and working professionals on the importance of strategic attire.
