Bill Maus and Frank Hoffman, Las Olas Boulevard circa 1951
In 1940 William Maus, Sr. and Frank Hoffman founded our business on a simple idea: “always offer the best.” And over 70 years later, we are still doing just that. We offer the best of its kind, traveling the world to find clothing to meet the needs and satisfy the tastes of men and women who require quality. Our long-standing relationships with American and European artisans allow us to develop, refine and update our unique offerings, combining tradition and innovation, the long favored with the new and fresh.
Rest assured that whatever carries the Maus & Hoffman/Solemare label carries a guarantee of true quality, of years of enjoyment, of timeless good taste. Occasionally we find established companies that share our commitment to quality and taste: Brioni, Hickey-Freeman, Bobby Jones, Paul & Shark and Vilebrequin for men; Piazza Sempione, Zanella, Basler for women; Liberty of London for men and women.
And our dedication to quality extends beyond what we offer. We match the quality of our merchandise with personalized service of equal excellence. If a size is not within the usual range, we’ll make every attempt to obtain it; if there’s a color we’ve missed, we’ll try to find it; if it’s a special occasion, we’ll work to meet every requirement. And we treat every customer, every inquiry, with the courtesy, generosity and sincere interest one might expect from a good friend.
The Maus family is committed to continuing this tradition of offering the best in quality and service. The third generation is as dedicated as was the first. You may depend on it.
