A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of visiting the office of suitcase generator extraordinaire, Russ Ross.
The man is a self-taught engineer who has spent years developing a suite of suitcases for his customers.
Ross, a former Navy Seal and current owner of the Suitcase Generator, has made more than 300 suits over the past 10 years.
While many of his customers are looking for the perfect suit, Ross also makes custom suits for his employees, clients, and his own clients.
Ross is also known for his ability to make suitcases from scratch.
Ross was born in Georgia and has lived in Southern California since he was 10 years old.
While Ross grew up in a small town in Georgia, he quickly became obsessed with the idea of creating something truly unique.
“I always loved the idea that people would like something that is unique,” Ross said.
“That was my first obsession.”
Ross was already a veteran when he was a teenager, serving in Vietnam as an infantryman.
He had to wear the Army uniform for most of his career, but he always felt like he belonged somewhere else.
He didn’t want to just “do what everybody else did.”
He wanted to make something that he could be proud of.
“A lot of people, they have their own personal story,” Ross explained.
“They were born in this area, and they have a lot of memories.
But there is nothing like being out there with your friends, your family, your pets and your family.
They are all your family and your pets.”
Ross wanted to create something that was his own.
He created his first suitcase in his parents’ garage.
Ross used a mix of materials and techniques to build his first custom suitcase.
He took inspiration from a lot that he loved, including the people he worked with, his parents, and even his father, a decorated Marine Corps veteran.
He then created a few variations of the suitcases that he liked the best.
Ross wanted the suitcase to be unique and he wanted his customers to have something special.
“Custom suits are very hard to come by,” Ross added.
“The only way to make one is to go to a tailor.
It is very difficult to make a custom suit.
There is no website.
You can’t just buy it online.
“In the end, I made almost 900 of them. “
It took me years to make my first suitcases,” Ross continued.
“In the end, I made almost 900 of them.
I did all the work myself.
It was a lot, but I was very proud of them.”
Ross said that he was inspired by the stories that his clients told him.
“My clients told me that they have always loved their suits,” Ross noted.
“When I asked them what they liked about their suitcases they told me about how it was something that they had always wanted.”
One of Ross’ favorite stories is about his father.
Ross explained that he used to wear his father’s military uniform to work.
“He always wore a big leather jacket with a blue plaid collar.
He was a Marine,” Ross recounted.
“But I think he was the most loyal Marine in the Marines.
His name is Steve, and he was in charge of our supply line.
One day he came up and told me he had a big order and he had to leave early.
He came back two hours later and was back in the same uniform.
My father never liked to leave his Marines,” Ross recalled.
Ross has had more than 1,000 suits built, with many more coming in the pipeline.
Ross also has his own unique style.
He makes custom suitcases using fabrics that are made from materials that are more environmentally friendly and are made with less water.
These suits also come in different colors, with different designs and different fabrics.
“Every day I try to create a new suit that I like, and I make the suits as simple as possible,” Ross stated.
Ross said he also has designs for new suits that are unique to him.
Ross likes to design his suits in a way that makes them look unique.
The result is that he can’t seem to get one of his clients to buy a suit from Ross.
“Sometimes, he will come back and say, ‘What you made?
I didn’t think it looked good,’ ” Ross said of his own customers.
“And I will say, well, that’s because I didn ‘t think it was going to look good.'”
Ross said a lot has changed in the past decade for him as a maker of custom suits.
“There are more and more things you can do to make your own,” Ross stressed.
“You can build your own website and your own portfolio.
You have all of the tools to make the suit as you want it.”
Ross has seen a lot in his career and the impact of technology in making suits more unique.
In addition to his clients’ requests for custom suits, Ross said his customers often ask
