Jones, who grew up in DeSoto, graduated from Texas A&M University with a finance degree in 2006. He came up with his idea while doing cleaning and construction work at the U.S. Embassy in China, a country known for producing custom-tailored clothing at low prices.

Jones quit his job, spent seven months researching fabric suppliers and contract manufacturers in China, and moved back here. He started DJones Tailored Collection in Cedar Hill in May 2008, using about $18,000 in savings and $12,000 in personal loans.
