Who We Are

Owner, Gary Novotny – Manager, Nathen Rutt – Fabian Rene Fury, Wardrobe Consultant

Gary L. Novotny has spent an illustrious 47 years in the men’s clothing industry. He established Gary Michael’s Clothiers in Hastings in 1983, and only five years later his service and attention to detail earned him the title of Nebraska’s Retailer of the Year. Novotny continued his success by opening a store in Lincoln in 1993, and not long after, he hired a manager who would soon become an integral part of the store’s next 30 years in the capital city: Nathen Rutt. Together, Gary and Nathen have sought to provide Lincoln with world-class fashion and unmatched customer service. They believe the future success of Gary Michaels Clothiers lies in maintaining those values and are excited at the opportunity to do so today.
