#HaitianExcellence 🇭🇹 According to The Palm Beach Post, Frantz Chérilus is a local Custom Clothier who delivers style directly to dappered men throughout South Florida in his Rich Men Looks mobile boutique. He sells an assortment of suits, tuxedos, blazers, dress shirts and pocket squares. But now, the fashion truck entrepreneur, who emigrated to the United States from Haiti in 2001, has anchored his “budget-friendly” shopping niche in Boynton Beach in a business plaza. — Chérilus was an FAU grad with a degree in political science who bought and sold clothes to help fund his law school ambitions. His passion for fashion eventually overtook law practice. He spent years researching, constructing, and building his brand before launching it in 2016. He is really surprised by the success of his business in such a short amount of time, but it’s his work ethic and passion for fashion that has led him this far! Cherilus is now eying expansion to Miami, Jacksonville, and Atlanta. — 📸 Source: Wilkine Brutus from The Palm Beach Post #lunionsuite #haitianamerican #entrepeneur #mensfashion
