Empire Ltd. is a consignment clothing store located in downtown Greer, South Carolina that specializes in the production of bow ties made from reclaimed materials.
James Carter takes pride in his ability to outfit people on any budget. He says that he got his start out of necessity and began by assembling outfits from consignment stores and thrift stores, as a young man. After a career in culinary arts, he decided to transition to a new career and began Empire Ltd. studios.
After originally operating in Simpsonville, he relocated to Greer.
