From an early age, Aylah was fascinated with fabrics, colors, accessories and shoes. Helping men look their best has always been Aylah's specialty, but now she gets to actually measure her clients and have outfits built for their specific measurements. Not only is Trumaker's custom tailoring an essential service for all men, it is particularly fitting for dads, because dads are too busy raising their children and supporting their families to go shopping at the mall. And dads are too busy working to deal with annoying fit-issues associated with buying off-the-rack sizes. And most importantly, dads deserve the one-on-one attention and unique experience of having their very own outfitter. The best way to assure to receive Aylah's top notch service is by contacting her at the phone number listed above. Aylah shares her tips for the best gifts for Father's Day.

Gift Card

Why don't you treat your dad to a shopping experience he will actually enjoy with a gift card to his favorite store? With a gift card to Trumaker, he can use the card for whatever, including custom shirts and suits. Trumaker gift cards can be ordered online, and start at $50.


A sweatshirt is the perfect dad's weekend top. Soft, durable and simple, a sweatshirt is great for dad to relax in and lay on the coach to watch a game. A sweatshirt is also great to throw on to run errands in. Trumaker offers sweatshirts in neutral colors that every dad will love, such as navy, grey and natural white.


Polos are good for business casual offices, summer nights out and, of course, the golf course. Treat dad to a new polo in his favorite color. Or, if you're looking for a polo to match everything, Trumaker sells polos in wonderful basic colors.

Why not buy a rugged leather belt that gets better with age... just like your dad? Dad can never have enough belts, so a variety of colors and styles is always good to have hanging in the closet to coordinate with the day's outfit.


A tie is the old standby gift for Father's Day, for good reason. Dad always needs new ties to update his closet, and he can never have too many ties. A classy tie from Trumaker will definitely take any wardrobe up a notch in style.
