Back in 1985, a 15 year old Benjamin Eng landed his first job working for a local haberdashery in Montclair, NJ, called Bragg & Son located on the ever-so-charming Church Street. Surrounded by perfectly tailored clothing from Hickey Freeman, buttery leather jackets from Sawyer of Napa, classic shoes from Allen Edmonds, and the finest silk accessories from Robert Talbott, Ben quickly learned to appreciate true quality in classic menswear. But appreciation is one thing and affordability another. When it came down to it, his family simply did not have much money. So soon, Ben picked up the habit (though some might call it an art or skill) of bargain-shopping. He started to frequent the sales racks of department stores at the end of the season as well as discount stores and outlets. Friends started to notice Ben's upgraded wardrobe and were soon asking him to find deals for them too. Thus began Ben’s foray into hunting for bargains and passing the deal on to friends. Fast-forward a few years later, having completed a liberal arts degree in Business Administration, Ben went on to work for Ralph Lauren, Grieco Brothers (manufacturer of Southwick, Brooks Brothers, and Ralph Lauren tailored clothing), and Nordstrom where he earned top sales levels for the company. But the advent and intrigue of the internet led Ben back to his roots in scouring stores for bargains and offering them on ebay, which then ultimately led to the founding of eHaberdasher.com. Although no longer cherry picking from the clearance racks, Ben still enjoys the hunt, continually making new friends and contacts with frequent travel to New York, Italy, and beyond to find and offer the very finest in menswear to friends and loyal customers.
In 2009, Ben saw a lack of availability in classic, high quality staple business clothing at a reasonable price, and began to design and manufacture his own line of tailored suits, jackets, and trousers. The Benjamin line was born, with the Sartorial Line spearheading the effort in offering a true fully canvassed suit for $550 - unheard of in the industry. Soon to follow came ties made in Como, Italy from the same manufacturers as many luxury brands that sell for three, four and even five times more. Shirts were also added to the collection, with luxurious long staple Italian cottons used in the manufacturing by the same European factories of luxury brands but at a fraction of the price. Due to the incredible value proposition, the Benjamin line has grown to be the most popular selling brand for the company and is currently exclusively available only through eHaberdasher.com.
