And, if you so desire, we will provide a photographic catalogue of your wardrobe for further reference.

At Mitchells, Richards, and Wilkes Palo Alto, we provide interactive play areas so your time with us can be more relaxed and your children can still have fun. Treats and soft drinks are always on hand as well.


Service is important to us, not only in our store, but also in our community. We will help you clear out those unwanted items that have been cluttering up your closet, while providing for a good cause. All discarded items will be donated to a local charity — we will coordinate the donation and make the delivery ourselves.


A loose thread or button can be just the thing that unravels your day. Bring in any suits or outerwear with buttons that need repair and we’ll re-attach or tighten them for you, on site and free of charge. We like to see you looking your best, down to the details.


Developing lasting personal relationships helps our Style Advisors select items they know you will love and will fit your lifestyle. Through our new M World services, we keep a visual electronic inventory of your wardrobe that helps you make smart choices, reminding you and your Style Advisor of what you have and in what size. A wardrobe is a serious investment. There is no substitute for building it wisely with someone who has taken the time to truly understand your style.
