Eric Adler: Tastefully Bold Menswear.
We are currently a primarily bespoke or custom men’s clothier. Our showroom with curated Eric Adler original designs is located at 640 Spence Lane, Suite 250 Nashville, TN 37217. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday 10am-6pm and by appointment on Saturday and Sunday.
At Eric Adler we strive to transform the negative stereotype that Americans are poorly dressed. EA envisions a time when the United States of America is considered the best-dressed nation in the world. Besides his #BestDressedUS campaign, Eric Adler wishes to see the return of American made products. We stand for a united American spirit that sources primarily local fabrics and manufacturing. We believe that the core values of diligent and quality work that are intrinsic to so many of the different American cultures can render our creative and industrial capabilities number one.
Eric Adler Clothing was born in the mountains of Southern Spain and bred in the hills of Middle Tennessee: In 2012 while Eric Adler Bornhop was living abroad, he was inspired by the stylish street culture of the Southern Spanish people to create his own line of clothing. After returning home to Nashville, he began working as a tailor’s apprentice under local legend and fashion designer Manuel Cuevas. Manuel taught Eric the dying art of tailoring and allowed him to explore his tastes in fashion design. During his time at Manuel, he began developing his own clothing line Eric on nights and weekends. Eric Adler Clothing made its debut in 2014 at Nashville Fashion Week as one of the 10 Emerging Designers. Since then he has been awarded the prestigious Nashville Fashion Forward Fund Award and moved on from Manuel Couture to his own studio where he has been designing and tailoring for Alan Jackson, Big Kenny, Shania Twain, Mayor Megan Berry, The Brothers Osborne, Post Malone and more.

Sales Coordinator/Head Tailor
Instead of throwing away $1500+ worth of clothing, Jason began altering his own clothes over 2 years ago. He wanted his clothes to fit the styles of the times. Jason and Eric met one night and discussed their common sartorial interests and partnership was forged. In addition to sewing and altering clothes on the side, Jason’s background is in sales and customer service. When we met Jason was working as the head of sales for the Southeastern region at AKE Safety Equipment, a company specializing in fire extinguishers and fire safety equipment.
