For over 62 years, Beverly Hills-based Carroll & Co. has been dressing prestigious directors, producers, writers, and numerous actors. Carroll & Co. custom-tailored clothing for Hollywood celebrities such as Clark Gable, Fred Astaire, William Holden, Billy Wilder, Gregory Peck, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Jimmy Stewart, Rock Hudson, Jack Lemmon, and Walter Matthau as they began to frequent the store and provided clothing for classics like “The Bob Newhart Show”, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, “Charlie’s Angels”, and “The Six-Million Dollar Man.”

Through the decades and today, Hollywood continues its love affair with Carroll & Co. as leading men such as Tom Cruise, Robert Redford, and Harrison Ford are all outfitted in Carroll & Co. clothing for their films.

“Many of Carroll’s clients have been with him for 30 years or more; the company itself has been in business for 62 years. If nothing else, this alone proves the fact that dressing and grooming is a highly valuable and sought after service in LA.

Carroll drills into his employees, and also his customers, the idea that first impressions are key. Dressing for the first impression, whether it be for a job interview, a graduate interview, or a client meeting has long lasting effects.” –
