Our Start

Cardero Clothing was created by Derek Burbidge soon after he rented a suit/tuxedo for his wedding day. The outfit was 100% polyester and came in three days before the wedding where it fit loose in most areas. After having to return his suit by 10am the next day, Derek and his wife Danielle travelled to Thailand for their honeymoon.

​That is where he had two suits, three dress shirts and a top coat made to his measurements. A strong desire grew to not let other Grooms and Business Professionals make the same mistakes he made when it came to renting outfits and choosing poor fits out of not knowing any better.
Since then Cardero Clothing has created outfits for clients around the world.

One of the biggest problems we have solved in the past 6 years is helping body builders purchase suits that actually fit them. Men with an athletic fit cannot get their frame into off-the-rack suits due to their large shoulders, lats and thighs.

Whether you are a bodybuilder looking for a suit, a slim guy or any shape or size, our 21 measurements ensure a proper fit.

I am extremely pleased with the suit that I purchased from Cardero Clothing...the suit fit wonderfully, requiring no additional changes. I was astonished at how comfortable the suit was! The pants, shirt and vest were quite comfortable..Overall my fiancée and I agreed the suit was of excellent quality and value, I will definitely shop at Cardero Clothing again!
