We are Nathan Scripps and Cesar Byström. We like clothes and don't like fast fashion or high prices. We want to wear quality clothes at a fair price with pride in how and where they were made. We think that clothing should not be disposable, fashion should not be driven by corporate deadlines or maximized margins, and that style is far too personal to buy everything you own off the rack. We hope you agree. So how did we get started? We designed the suits for Nathan's wedding, down to the last button hole, and had a great time doing it. Check out the results below. We tried to find a way to make them more affordable, yet high quality and ethically made, and didn't find any options that met our standards.
Tailored Forward is our side-project to help other guys build and buy the suits that best fit them and their personalities far better than anything off the rack. Oh, and we want to keep the costs down and make our suits right here in the USA with traditional craftsmanship blended with updated style.
We think suits can and should be a go-to item in every guy's closet. Not just for weddings, suits can make an appearance for that fancy dinner date, evening at the museum, a night on the town or a random Thursday just for kicks. Suits don't need to be stuffy or spendy or saved for special occasions. Suits can speak loudly with subtle hints just as easily as bold patterns - and your style dictates the difference. Those differences are what make a couple yards of fabric change from 'a suit' to 'your suit.'
We hope you enjoy making your suit with Tailored Forward.
