Sterling Derk

Born into the clothing industry, Sterling Derk has been surrounded by menswear and formalwear his whole life, getting to know constructions, fabrics, fits and classical tailoring from an early age. Keeping with Derks' tradition, he started working for the family business at age 13. He’s worked his way through the trenches, starting as a shoe cleaner at Derks Formals and now the owner of Mr. Derk.

As Sterling’s menswear knowledge continues to grow, so does his drive and commitment to provide quality clothing and current trends to men. Because our local market is often saturated with similar product, Sterling searches global marketplaces to find unique, quality clothing at an accessible price point. His refined taste and appreciation for quality and longevity allow Mr. Derk to provide the best products, service and advice to our customers.
