Chris is not from Baltimore, but he has adopted the City as his home, reminding us that at one time Baltimore was home to a thriving textile industry. Learn more from Chris as he competes to succeed as a small business owner and community leader in our city.
Christopher learned the art of measuring & design while living in London, a city that had a profound effect on his life. While immersed in the English culture, he absorbed the sensibilities of some of the world's best clothiers while being trained in the skills he would need to execute his own vision of the classic English style. During his time in London, Christopher would frequently visit Saville Row and Jermyn Street to observe and gather inspiration. The end result was a new approach to men's clothing that blends European style and fit with a modern attention to detail, clean, understated lines, and comfort. This formula produces fashionable, fitted and comfortable clothing that you will love wearing.
