We pride ourselves on a "let's get creative and make it happen" kind of mentality---and only doing things in the best possible way---so please don't be shy about your wildest brainstorming.
Since I started this small business in 2014, one of my favorite parts of the journey has been the honor of working with couples on special pieces for their wedding day. And since then, we have also developed quite the range of special offerings relevant to your wedding.
Custom Apparel: Of course, that's where we started! We make the best custom suits and provide the best experience in Portland (if not the whole west coast); but because we have a highly skilled in-house tailoring team with a wide array of design and couture experience, we also do more than suits. Matching velvet smoking jackets? Wedding cosplay? We're here for that too.

Custom Accessories: We are proud to make the highest quality custom ties, bowties, pocket squares, shoes, and more. We have our own special small-batch silks woven in London just for us, and we can also source materials from all over the world. And when we say "custom," we don't just mean you get to choose the fabric; we'll happily make a longer tie for that 6'4" groomsman, a special bowtie with the perfect dimensions for dad, or even a hand-sewn silk scarf in your tie fabric to surprise mom.

Groomsmen: Many folks like to gift custom ties and pocket squares to their wedding party or family, and we'll happily discuss that, complete with elegant gift wrapping and hand-written notes by our team. But we have also helped with so many other gift ideas: handwoven scarves; handknit hats; handblown scotch glasses; cufflinks; and more. Check out our sister gallery, Day in the Life, as a starting point, and don't be afraid to ask about custom commissions!

Jewelry: Through our sister gallery we also represent several highly skilled metal and jewelry artists, and have been honored to create custom hand-forged mokume gane wedding bands, cufflinks, and more. We especially love making jewelry of a more masculine aesthetic, as we feel that is a very underserved market. Here are a few ring examples from our gallery.
Groom's Gift: We'll preach the groom's gift to anyone who will listen; we think it's time to embrace the idea of the groom receiving a special gift, a symbolic heirloom that he'll treasure the way an engagement ring is loved. He doesn't wear much jewelry? No problem: we've commissioned heirloom leather bags; fine pieces of furniture; and even a hand-forged hunting knife.
Special Small-Event Spaces: Did you know we have over 2,000 square feet of some of the most interesting, intimate space in Portland? Our gallery (Day in the Life) up front is bright and airy, with handblown glass chandeliers, cherry paneling, and beautiful objects of art; then through the moody walnut library a hidden door opens into our Wildwood private speakeasy (where we meet with our tailoring clients) with original brick, dark walnut paneling, and a bar replete with 50 fine whiskies of the world. We're not the right fit for every event of course, but we've hosted intimate music events, fashion shows, whisky educations, bachelor parties (I just insist on being the first stop of the evening, not the last!), rehearsal cocktail parties and dinners, and even a small wedding or two. The spaces work great in combination; imagine a fancy cocktail hour for 20 guests (e.g., a welcome event for family coming into town a couple days before the wedding) up in the fancy gallery space, and then the group is led back in surprise through the hidden walnut door to 20 chairs set up for a concert by a cellist. You get the idea... the possibilities are endless, and we love to help brainstorm and execute memorable occasions. Heck, I'm even a wedding officiant!
