About Our Founder

Brandon C. Chestnut, Founder and CEO of Self-Made Couture, grew up in a single family household, in Indianapolis, Indiana.

While earning his Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Purdue University, he had the great fortune of pledging Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Incorporated and upon graduation went on to Cleveland State University where he earned his Master of Business Administration concentrated in International Business and Marketing.

It was during his graduate school training that he had the rare opportunity to intern abroad in Shanghai, China where he found his love for custom suits. He graduated from graduate school with high honors and immediately started his own custom clothier company, through the connections he made with manufacturers around the world.

Now he and his wife (Co-Owner, Sydney Chestnut) have grown the company to luxury showrooms in Cleveland, Ohio and Seattle, Washington with a team of Self-Made Style Experts ready to help clients design themselves.
