A few questions answered by the proprietor of Empire Ltd. Studio, Mr. James Carter:

Where are you from?

I grew up In Cleveland Ohio. My mother was a Professional Cosmetologist and my father a Tailor and Dry Cleaner. I had no choice but to pay attention to fashion. The motto around our house was, “if you look good you feel good, if you feel good you will do good”.

Why an "Upscale Men's Consignment Studio"?

I opened my second men’s retail store #HereinGreer where my sense of style and business expertise could be maximized to its fullest potential. I receive tremendous support here from friends, surrounding business owners and professional colleagues who are clients as well. Opening the only upscale men’s consignment studio in the upstate has provided me with the ability to examine more options for myself personally and also to develop a broader business prospectus.

What is unique about your story?

Along with my love for fashion, I also have a passion for working with non-profit organizations, which included Meals On Wheels, Goodwill Industries and Pendleton Place Children Shelter to name a few. I was determined to find a way to support and assist non-profit organizations raise more funding and at the same time share my love for fashion. Voila! Empire Bow Ties was created to help support several non-profit organizations raise money for their cause while at the same time provide Custom Hand Made Bow Ties for the discerning man who loves to wear bow ties. Half of all profits from a purchased bow tie will be donated to any supported Non-Profit when the special code identifying the non-profit is used during the purchasing of any bow tie on their web site.

Who does your business serve primarily?

Empire Ltd. Studio and Empirebowties.com was created specifically for men with exquisite good taste. But we’ve found that men from all forms of work and play enjoy our products and we’re very happy to serve them!.
