Our Story


  • "I’ve been buying suits from Smitty for 30 years. Not only is Smitty a genius Clothier, he’s a wonderful person to know as a friend. I was looking through my suits this morning. I have a dozen or more Lionel Smith suits , some over 25 years old, that still look as fashionable today, as then. Also, I have Smitty casual ensembles he suggested from 25 years ago, that I often wear..."

  • "I’ve been tailored by Lionel Smith Ltd. for more than 2 decades, and not one time have I ever received less than a first class experience. From service to quality to the finest fit. I couldn’t have had a better experience buying 8 suits for groomsman across the country, and having them all taken care of in a timely and professional way. There isn’t better fine men’s clothing experience in the state of South Carolina."

    – Paul Miles

  • "I've always felt valued as a person and client since about 1994, not as a mere customer. That is, the employees take time to get to know me and my tastes and advise accordingly, never making me feel rushed or pressured to buy. This is a rare boutique-type shop where I feel at ease enough just to drop by for a chat when I'm in the neighborhood."
