About Peter Panos
Peter Panos Aristakessian is a master bespoke tailor whose passion is helping the men of San Francisco discover their personal style through well-fitted, custom-made garments. For nearly 40 years, he has been providing the highest-quality custom tailoring to businessmen, working men, and celebrities like Pixar’s John Lasseter, and San Francisco Symphony’s Michael Tilson Thomas.
As a young boy Peter attended the finest tailoring houses in Beirut, Lebanon. In 1976, driven from the country due to war, Peter found himself living in San Francisco. With little more than $2 in his pocket, he began knocking on doors, seeking to demonstrate his skill in tailoring. After years of hard work, he finally opened up his own store in Union Square in 1978, where he works to this date.
