Dapper Gent Spotlight: Alex Akharamen

No comments

Hello “Cigar Community” and “Cigar Family!” Thank you for joining us and reading another great article here at Red Lips and Cigar Sticks

Today’s dapper gentleman (Dapper Gent) of the week is Alex O. Akharamen out of Houston, TX.


Within the “Cigar Community,” there are so many different dimensions of entrepreneurship, business endeavors, partnerships and leadership opportunities, and business empowerment, which is phenomenal, because it gives you a direct audience that business owners can capitalize on, expeditiously in your immediate circle, and/or community.  Creating a “Brand” that is incorporated into the lifestyle of being a cigar enthusiast is a great business strategy.

Therefore, we here at Red Lips and Cigar Sticks™ would like to recognize Alex as our Dapper Gent, and, as our business spotlight, too!


Alex is the owner of The Exclusive Gentleman, which is a retail store that specializes in making custom suits for men, as well as offering the necessary accessories to enhance your suits with a bow tie, lapel pins, fedoras, complimenting socks, and even a complimentary cigar to complete one’s look based on their purchases.


Alex has been a cigar enthusiast for roughly four years. He was first introduced to cigars when he visited the great city of New Orleans with his siblings. As they were exploring the city of New Orleans, they visited a cigar factory. And, from there, Alex discovered his passion for cigars in the “Who Dat Nation” territory.


Alex’s favorite cigar is La Gloria Cubana

When Alex is having a cigar, he likes to pair Crown Royal and sometimes Fireball with his cigar, because to him, the pairing gives a spicy taste to his pallet.


Alex is our Dapper Gent of the week, because of his bravery to start his own business, as a custom suit designer, which he loves, because of the networking opportunity, as being a business owner has brought him, along with being a cigar enthusiast. He has a profound love and passion for cigars and being around people that not only love cigars, but have a passion for dressing, and with that combination, he fell in love with the cigar lifestyle.  Also, Alex is a member of an organization out of Houston, TX called Stixx and Stonez Cigar Society.
