Jim Pak

Property developer and owner of Happywash car wash in Hyattsville

“Jim doesn’t follow fashion at all, but he understands it very well—he appreciates great craftsmanship. He never gets intimidated by what other people wear. He was wearing his pants with no break at the hem and without socks a long time before Thom Browne made that look fashionable. He invests in great pants, shoes, coats—everything. His closet is museum-quality.”

—Vivi Pak, Jim’s wife
