From American-made to made in D.C. : Introducing the RW Workshop

A note from Read:  Since I started this company, we have always been proud to work with some of the best factories, manufactures, and artisans in this country. Quality is something we take very seriously and it exists in small pockets here in the U.S.A. While trends show these skills are waning still, the pride we take in our work has never wavered. Walking through these factories is inspiring, like a window into the way things used to be done; to anyone that says ‘they don’t make ‘em like they used to’, I’ll show them through any number of tailoring houses in Brooklyn, with old wood floors and artisans sewing by hand. But the downside to working with a factory...

Dog Days of Summer: Take 15% on MTM Sportcoats

Friends, Chances are, just like us, you’ve noticed the dog days of summer have arrived on the district. The heat and humidity become a little more unbearable, the rain brings little relief, and the last thing you want to do is dress for work. That said - if you’re going to have to dress for work, it makes sense to do it in the fabrics of the summer in DCity: Linen, Tropical Wool, High-Twist Frescos, and even Mohair. Utilizing these beautiful natural fiber cloths can take that formerly unbearable work commute and turn it into a breeze (literally). We’re celebrating this cure for the dog days with 15% off all sourced summer jacketing. That’s 15% off our seasonal made-to-measure, full-canvas...

Introducing: The American Luxury Collection

Friends,
 A couple of weeks back we teamed up with our good friend Jacob Long and American Woolen Company for a trunk show celebrating the American craftsmen. These fine folks are the only domestic mill capable of producing the highest qualities in worsted and woolen cloth. We have since endeavored to celebrate American Woolen’s Spring/Summer ’17 collection with a fully canvassed American coat, the likes of which would honor not just the makers, but the styles born in these great United States. The result? A collection of four sport coats tailored by American hands, cut from cloth woven by American mills, with yarn made from American fleece. This is the American luxury collection. Tailored in our house Shaw No. 1...
