“We’re kind of a niche type clothing store where we’re in the higher end of men’s designer clothing,” Steinberg said.
Over the years, he’s dressed local celebrities, lawyers, politicians and more at J.S. Edwards, his fine men’s clothing store in Pikesville.
But he recently decided he’s ready for a new chapter of his life and is ready to retire.

His business has developed quite the following of loyal customers who say the clothing and service here is unlike any other in the area.
“JS Edwards has been the go-to clothing store for me,” Benjy Green said.
“This is where I come when I want a special piece, special suit, things that you just don’t find anyplace else in Baltimore,” another customer told WJZ.
The store will stay open until some time in June. Steinberg said he hasn’t decided on the official closing date just yet.MORE NEWS: Baltimore County Group To Recommend Affordable Housing Improvements
