Kelvin T. Robertson, President/CEO founded Karson’s Clothier in February 2007 after being laid off from his corporate job in January 2007. In order to make ends meet and provide for his family, Mr. Robertson went back to his roots. As a 4th generation from a family of Tailors, Seamstresses’ and upholsterers, Mr. Robertson began selling handmade custom trousers to men from the trunk of his car.
It was a family affair from the beginning. While growing up, Robertson watched his mom handmake suits for his dad, brother and himself making the transition seamless. In high school, it was common for Robertson to show his mom a picture from a GQ magazine and have her replicate a look for an upcoming event. The ability to have someone bring an idea/concept to life birthed a passion for apparel design, styling and manufacturing.
Robertson returned to corporate America in March 2007 with TXU Energy, where he led the Office of the CEO and Social Media Teams. Over the years, Robertson’s bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Texas Southern University along with roles in Finance, Operations and Project Management served him well as he took the “leap of faith” to run Karson’s full-time in March 2015.
Over the past 11 years, Karson’s has expanded its lines of business from men’s custom apparel to custom sports apparel. As Karson’s continues to grow, the future looks bright for Robertson and his experienced team of custom designers, stylists and manufacturers. Among that team of experts, Robertson’s brother, Kendron, heads the graphic design team and his three daughters, Karsen, Kendall and Kelci, have taken an interest in the business from a finance, modeling and youth apparel design aspect.
Mr. Robertson is big on Legacy and receives motivation from this scripture:
Proverbs 13:22 King James Version (KJV)
“A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.”
