When you’re a man with taste, it can be hard to find clothes that fit your style and personality. A lot of male clothing can be so bland, even when you go to upscale boutiques. But there is one designer who understands the struggle and caters to dapper guys like you: Robert Pauley III of WELTHĒ Guy LLC.
Robert Pauley III is the owner of WELTHĒ Guy LLC, a lifestyle services brand. Robert started the WELTHĒ (pronounced wealthy) Guy when he was looking for a classic men’s coat with a fur collar, and he couldn’t find anything he liked. Robert decided to design his own coat and have it made by custom tailors. When Robert started wearing his coat, he would get stopped on the street by people, inquiring who the designer was. Once he told people he was the designer, they started placing orders.
After that, the success came in droves. Robert got the opportunity to show his designs in Atlanta, Chicago, and in New York during Fashion Week. In less than two years, the WELTHĒ Top Coat has appeared in numerous online and print publications as well as an independent film.
With this success, he managed to build a six-figure business that is all online. He makes videos on Instagram and sells custom outerwear and suits right from his living room. Aside from the United States, Robert gets clients from all over the world. People from places like Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Malaysia have purchased his products.
Aside from suits and custom outerwear, he also offers other services. As a startup business, Robert needed great images to showcase his designs, and he decided to take up photography so he could best showcase the WELTHĒ Top Coats the way he wanted them to be seen. This led to the creation of WELTHĒ Images Portraits. Clients began to book photo sessions with Robert, and he would create portraits of them. This business became an extension of the WELTHĒ Guy, and he began offering celebrity-style photo shoot experiences.
At WELTHĒ Images Portraits, he helps style the clients, and he offers hair and makeup and complimentary champagne. After the shoot, the client comes back for an image reveal and sees their images presented in a distressed leather box, handmade in Italy.
Robert also offers a style enhancement service called Look WELTHĒ, which is for men that want to add some style to their look. The service includes a consultation, where they discuss what they want to accomplish, and a virtual closet review, where he goes through the client’s current wardrobe and decides what to keep, donate, or sell. Robert then gives the clients a personalized easy to follow guide that they can use to implement their style changes. In this guide, he advises them on not just clothing but also skincare and grooming. In his way, he makes sure that his advice is holistic and can work for the long term.
