QUALITY MENS APPAREL IN CORAL GABLES SINCE 1968

Since 1968 Bolado Clothiers has set the standard for quality men’s apparel in the Coral Gables and Greater Miami area. Founded by Jose Bolado, Sr. in Coral Gables, Bolado Clothiers represents the “American Immigrant Success Story” at it‘s best.

Jose worked for his father Candido who had one of the finest men’s haberdasheries in Havana, Cuba Candido left Spain as a young man to look for a better life in Cuba at the turn of the century. He learned the tailor’s trade in the U.S.A. He returned to Cuba and eventually opened C. Bolado, Custom Tailors in Havana in 1928. In 1962 Jose fled Cuba and the oppressive Castro regime to seek freedom in The United States settling in Miami. His wife, Maria had left Cuba the year before with their three children-Lourdes, Jose, Jr. and Carlos. After years of working for others in the Men’s retail business, Jose and Maria were able to open their own store. It was located on Ponce De Leon Boulevard in Coral Gables. In 1972, Jose’s son, Jose, Jr. joined the family business. In 1975 Jose moved the store to the world famous “Miracle Mile”. That same year Carlos joined the family business. In 2008 the family purchased the property at 314 Miracle Mile and moved the store to its newest location. The new store serves as the ideal location for the Bolado family to showcase their collections of the finest merchandise for men available anywhere. After forty five years in business Bolado Clothiers has a permanent location from which to serve the Coral Gables Community for years to come.
