Famous Greatcoats and Trenchcoats

We love to make full length overcoats and trench coats. Because let's face it, the coat you buy at the store is barely a coat---it just looks like one. The fabric is too lightweight.

Morning Coats and Tailcoats–From Wools and Silks

Every year, many of our clients choose to get married in tails. Sometimes in classic white tie, sometimes in a swallowtail look or in one of our military or steampunk styles.

Custom 1920s Style Vests

We are famous for our 1920s style vests. The 1920s were a high point for waistcoats. The vests of the period contain all of the classic details that would become more codified in the 1930s. But in this earlier period there is still a wonderful flexibility and richness in style.
