Owned by 2 legendary Detroiters, Tony Stovall and Cliff G. Green. Hot Sams is an iconic Detroit Mens Fashion Brand built on an essential lifestyle promise. The Hot Sams brand has always been synonymous with High Quality Detroit Style. The story goes that in 1974 a couple of determined and hard working young men worked their way up the retail ladder at Hot Sams and in 1994 became owners of the very store they worked at, which makes this fashion and lifestyle label a true American/ Detroit Dream personified.
A combination of rich history and heritage, multiple generation span of service, timeless tactics, indigenous foundation and champions of overcoming odds has provided Hot Sams with a unique identity in the very competitive and ever changing city of Detroit and world of fashion and lifestyle.

Tony and Cliff have dressed me for so long I’ve lost track of time. My wife will go to the store and tell them what she’d like to see me wear and they ALWAYS pick out the PERFECT outfit. The service is superior and professional. They operate a first class business. I don’t know what I’d do without them. May God continue to smile on and bless The New Hot Sams
