"My dear wife Karen and I have traveled the country for years, shopping at many fine mens' haberdashers along the way. Karen loved to create my outfits, and dress me in only the finest, from head to toe. She was an extraordinary woman! Unfortunately, on June 20, 2016, Karen passed away from a sixteen year bout with cancer.
It was approximately late August or early September that I walked into Wilkes Bashford and met Cathy Ubell. The first thing I noticed about her was that wonderful smile she has, and how well dressed she was. Secondly, her warm, contagious personality radiated from her heart. She is very passionate about what she does, and her customer service skills are second to none. She listens and if your choices are not right for you, she will be brutally honest with you and explain clearly why she feels this way. As my personal clothing consultant, Cathy somehow was able to measure what type of man I am, my character, and how I like to dress. She would place beautiful garments, shirts, ties, pocket squares, shoes and accessories in front of my eyes that simply were magnificent! In the process of working together, I have interviewed her as well, and found out her extensive background and experience in the business. As you can tell, I've been shopping for mens clothing for years and I know that when you find a gem like Cathy, you've found a very special person. She is a keeper! Cathy's skill set is so wonderful, I wonder if the administration at Wilkes Bashford knows how lucky they are to have a sales consultant of this caliber working in their store.
I will always look for Cathy when I come into the store because she is the finest wardrobe consultant I have ever met. We share a beautiful personalized business relationship that I never want to be without and she makes me look and feel great. Regardless of where I am, I'm always complimented on how well dressed I am, thanks to Mrs. Cathy Ubell!"

I came into the store in January of this year having lost 20 pounds and without any clothes that fit. In the course of a year you have given me a new wardrobe, sage advice and have been a delight to be with. I not only have clothes that truly fit me for the first time in my life, I have clothes that look good and make me feel good. When I put on a suit in the morning or slacks and a sport coat to go out with Michele I feel great knowing that I am wearing the best clothes I have ever owned.
The best part was that it has been a pleasure to come into the store and spend time with you. You know I don’t like shopping but working with you has made this a wonderful experience. Thanks for everything."
