Frank Englund from Englund's apparel is my new facesofMalvern subject. Frank is synonymous with Malvern. He is truly one of the most friendly and inviting faces in town. Frank has spent 51 years in Malvern operating his esteemed mens shop. Many families are in their third generation shopping in Frank's store. In fact, my mother bought me the corduroy suit I wore in the 1978 GVHS fashion show, and I recently took my son there to get his latest interview suit. Although he is not a big fan of the internet, this true gentleman said yes immediately when asked to participate in my project. This guy is still going a million miles a minute, making sure that everything is perfect in his store. We sat down (for just a minute) on one of the beautiful windsor chairs to talk to The Man.
Here are the answers to a few of my questions:
