About the Owner:

     Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia. I grew up fascinated with tailored clothing worn by my father and grandfather. As I grew older, I spent many days trying on my father's custom Barney's suits from the 60's and 70's; Admiring the craftsmanship and materials that were once a standard of that time (ala horsehair canvas and hand stitching). My fascination continued as I joined an online menswear community and began to learn the intricacies of menswear.

     As the years progressed, so did my taste in clothing. I began swapping out my cheap shoes for the  English variety with a goodyear construction, chisled last, and box calf. My sunday ritual became polishing shoes with a little scotch to sip, brushing out suits, and putting a dent in my wallet as I found new curators of clothing. My philosophy for purchasing more expensive clothing was rooted in ritual, longevity, and quality. For something that uses better materials and has a classic silhouette may cost more up front, but will last me for years to come as part of my wardrobe. I strayed away from things that were trendy and contemporary, opting for items that suited me as an individual and had no sartorial expiration date. I wore many hats( no pun intended) , including working in a renowned haberdashery, where i continued to hone my own style. I began sewing and learning graphic design , which transitioned into the collections you see today. I wish to bring about exposure to the menswear community. For those that contribute, and to those yearning to dress well the way our fathers and grandfathers did.
