Proprietor: Kenneth Himmelstein of Samuel Parker Clothier
Since its opening in 2002, Baltimore’s best-dressed men have relied on Samuel Parker Clothier for their sartorial needs. This fall, the shop moved to a new, larger location in the Village of Cross Keys, where owners Kenneth and Ellen Himmelstein expanded their selection of men’s clothing and accessories, adding a selection of home goods and furnishings.
