Alan Chalmers Fine Menswear Opening in Fredericksburg
Alan Chalmers Fine Menswear is opening at 205 Hanover St. in downtown Fredericksburg, with a grand opening scheduled March 3 – 5, 2017.
Sam Thomas of Fredericksburg and Dina Alan of Richmond collaborated on the store. Dina owns Alan Furs and Bash Boutique at 804 Caroline St, which is just around the corner from Alan Chalmers Fine Menswear.

The shop will also offer personalized styling advice, full service tailoring, and tuxedo rentals.
The store name comes from Dina “Alan” and Samuel “Chalmers” Thomas.
