Prime Cut and Sew

Zeke Mendoza, Paul Mallory, and Roman Romero all attended Westwood High School together and now have joined forces to open Prime Cut and Sew in Downtown Mesa. Their Barber and Boutique also opened for business on Friday on South Macdonald Street. For Zeke it is "Bringing it all back home" after he left to study fashion in Los Angeles. He and Roman had another clothing store in South Scottsdale but they "never felt like part of the community.

On Sunday they reflected that they were all overwhelmed by the welcome they have received back home in Mesa.

Many Downtowners visited and welcomed them to the neighborhood including NEDCO and Mayor of Mesa John Giles. 

They are bringing hip street wear, motorcycles, and an old fashioned concept of the neighborhood barber where friends can come and talk.

This combination seems to perfectly mirror Mesa's growing Downtown identity of combining traditions of our past with new direction and energy for the future. Roman likes Mesa's "Unlimited potential, and that was certainly present in the over 300 people who came out for Prime Cut and Sew's opening party. 

The mission of Prime Cut and Sew is to be welcoming and inclusive while bringing diversity to Main Street.

Paul says "Mesa's time is now", and they hope to contribute with art, fashion shows and events to make Prime Cut and Sew a part of Mesa's Downtown Community.

Zeke, Roman and Paul (from top left) are thrilled
 to be back home in Downtown Mesa
Prime Cut and Sew is located at 61 S Macdonald Street in Mesa, Arizona 85201

They are open Tues-Sat 10am-8pm and Sunday 10am-4pm

Phone number and website coming soon.
