Cardero Clothing was created by Derek Burbidge soon after he rented a suit for his wedding day. The suit 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 traveled 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.

Since then Cardero Clothing has created outfits for clients across North America and had their ties and pocket squares shipped around the world.

In 2015, Derek and his wife Danielle traveled to Europe. Derek brought back the fashion forward style of Western Europe to his clients. The slimmer lines, proper fit and timeless styles are something he believes can translate to North American culture. Whether it is in the business world, for your wedding or simply for a night out with friends.

"The suit came in 2 weeks (with rush ordering) and fit perfectly. Fit was amazing and the quality was great. Better than anything I found in the chain stores and for a much better price. Will definitely order again from them."
