Herbert I. Reamer, former owner and president of Reamer’s, a chain of Baltimore clothing stores that kept men and women well-dressed for decades, died May 10 from Parkinson’s disease at his Roland Park Place home. The former Cross Keys resident was 85.
“He had a good eye for fashion and trends that were developing,” said a son, Alex Reamer of New York City. “He just had a great eye for clothes and was definitely ahead of his time.”
Herbert Irwin Reamer, the son of Gustav Reamer, a merchant, and Shirley Hendler Reamer, a homemaker, was born in Baltimore and spent his early years in Whiteford, Harford County, where his father owned and operated a general store.
