D.D.T. Clothing

Ric Toman was managing a Robert Hall menswear store in Fridley, MN, when the company filed for bankruptcy in July 1977. A friend who purchased the inventory from 11 stores asked him to help oversee the closings which is when a specialty career was born.

Over the next 11 years, Toman worked with his friend, Jim Davis, to help close more than 100 menswear stores. Not only was this a difficult task, but it happened to be when the economy was slumping and customer expectations were rocking independent clothing stores across the nation.

In 1988, Toman and a friend formed DDT Clothing, which was based out of Fond Du Lac, WI. That partner was succeeded by Ric’s son Jake. A former U.S. Marine whose roots are firmly planted in the family business.

“The independent menswear store is all about generations. Often these stores are handed down generation to generation having served four, five, or even six generations of customers,” Jake Toman explains.

“I understand how important it is to the people we serve because DDT Clothing has a similar tradition. My dad had me selling socks and shirts when I was nine and ten years old – and I loved it! As I got older, I sold sweaters and ties, and worked my way up to suits. He’s always set the bar high to deliver the most for our customers. I look forward to continuing the tradition of excellent customer service and stellar results begun by my dad.”

“Over the years Ric Toman has helped more that 300 store owners – from mom-and-pop operations with annual revenues of $200,000 to department stores and upscale retailers with receipts of over $2 million – with their millstone sales. DDT Clothing is also the “go-to choice” of banks holding the assets of closed stores.

Our Promise

One promise always kept is the DDT Clothing team’s commitment to guide clients through the entire sale, which can take six to twelve weeks.

“We’ve sold everything from Samuelsohn suits and Talbott ties to Carhartts and Redwing work boots,” Ric Toman says. “We’ve been teasingly called the Dr.Kevorkian of retailers, but we take our business seriously because we know so much is at stake for the store owners we serve. Until now, all our business has come through references and word of mouth because we’ve delivered on our promises every single time.”
