What was once a one-man class project at The Ohio State University has become a bona fide suit shop, stacked with many talented team members who have made Pursuit what it is today.
Why are we here? Through the years we have been humbled by the number of people who have chosen to make us a part of some of their biggest days. We have worked hard to build a collection of products just for you and to make getting your suits more than just an item on your checklist but rather a unique, meaningful, and fun experience. On the surface, Pursuit was formed to provide a stylish, modern alternative that focused on top-notch service and approachable advice without the luxury price tag. But deeper than that, Pursuit was formed from our customer’s stories that inspire us every day.
Who are we? Well, some of us began like you: as customers. Others landed on our doorstep through mutual friends. And we’d like for you to get to know us a little better—what we each do, where we come from, and what we’re excited about. Meet Anthony Nutter:
Where are you originally from?
What do you do for Pursuit?
Customer Experience Specialist
Favorite restaurant in Columbus. Go!
What’s the best piece of professional advice you’ve ever received?
It only takes a little bit extra to be first class.
How did you first hear about Pursuit?
I was a customer first! I got a custom suit created two years ago.
How long have you been working at Pursuit?
It’ll be two years in February of 2020.
What’s the best part about working at Pursuit?
My pursuit fam. They are amazing people from diverse backgrounds, but we all have a common thread of kindness and empathy. I’m very thankful for all of them!
What’s your favorite Pursuit story? This could be from a noteworthy customer, a personal experience, an embarrassing moment, a team outing—anything!
Driving home from opening our OTR store, we had seven people piled into my minivan. We had some interesting team bonding that night!
What’s your biggest piece of advice you could give to a Pursuit customer?
Wear a suit, don’t look like one. Let your personality guide the process and look of the suit.
Last, but certainly not least, what are you in pursuit of? In other words, what’s most meaningful to you? What are you striving for outside of your job here at Pursuit?
I’m in pursuit of growth. Every day, I wake up and do my best to grow that day. I’m not necessarily focused on changing, because you can change and it not be for the better. Growth, however, will always bring change.
