Clothing store skips mall, opens downtown

Pittsburgh, PA – 1/7/2003 – Kevin Miscik has been in the men’s clothing business since he was a teenager, but deep down, he always harbored thoughts of owning his own business.

This week, he finally gets the chance to be his own boss when he takes ownership of Lapels, A Fine Men’s Clothier, at 106 South Pennsylvania Ave., Greensburg. The 3-year-old men’s clothing store was formerly known as Menswear Express.

Miscik is also bucking a long trend that saw retailers fleeing downtown areas for greener pastures at various shopping malls — a tendency that he feels is no longer in vogue.
