    The problem with getting a suit from MacheteNSons is that you’ll never be able to return to buying off-the-rack suits (or, at least, not without a strong sense that, in doing so, you’ve failed at life, disappointed your ancestors, and let down your country). By now, I have at least half a dozen suits from MacheteNSons -- and am running out of kidneys to sell to fund my habit. I love the old-fashioned, thicker suiting fabrics that MacheteNSons specialize in. They feel better to wear than modern off-the-rack suits, they fit better, they look better, they last better, they drape better, they never need pressing (they never get that nasty crumpled look that modern suits get after about 10 minutes of wear). Do yourself a favour and get a suit made by these guys -- or, better yet, get six, eight, ten of them ...

    Beautiful workmanship, in a style that suits me well.

    Whatever the latest clothing style happens to be, it’s unlikely to look great on every body type-just one reason to rummage through history and consider vintage styled clothing with an aesthetic that suits you.

    If all my clothes were made this well, I probably would wear out far fewer of them too.

    Incredible suit! I have yet to wear it outside of the house, but it will be the first suit that I wear for the summer! It fit perfectly and had exquisite styling and color The process of constructing the suit, even during the pandemic, was a great experience and one that was precise and skillful. It would be money well spent for me or anyone else to purchase from here again or for the first time.

    The Double Caped Tweed Overcoat is simply stunning. The owner was extremely professional during the whole definition process (the coat is a custom request), and very accomodating in fulfilling all my requests, from the type of fabric to the final details. Overall, it was a great experience and I could not be happier with the final result: amazing craftmaship, very high quality of service and materials. The owner was also so kind to arrange a special shipping for me, so that the item could reach its final destination in a very short time.
    Thanks so much for everything.

    Just one word!
    Perfection! Absoulutely perfection!
    And worth the price and the waiting time!
    This vest is based upon my old lastwear pinkerton vest, but this time it's of tweed.
    The quality smells and feels like high end super fine quality.
    They are very nice people and the service is perfect.
    Thank you so much for this vest!

    A very beautiful suit -- every detail is spot on. I could not be more pleased with the purchase. AJ is a thorough professional in every respect: communicative; incredibly skilled in making the design process both smooth and fun; and, of course, he has a wonderful talent for design, informed by a rich historical knowledge. I cannot recommend this vendor highly enough.

Bespoke Tailoring in Denver

In 2009, Lianna was designing for Liz Claiborne in NYC, and AJ had just finished up a Masters degree from Harvard.

They had met years before at the Pratt Institute (where Lianna studied fashion design and learned traditional couture techniques).

Each was looking to create a business that was more hands-on and traditional---with a more direct connection both to the clients and to the materials.

With the "supply chain management" of the 1990s and outsourcing to Asia, garments had become so much less durable. The fabrics had become thinner and thinner. And the obsession with making garments cheaper and cheaper meant that the wages for the garment industry were very low.

They wanted to make garments from better and heavier natural fiber fabrics. To make garments that the clients helped to design---that were individual and connected to the clients.

And, ultimately, to build a studio (in the USA!) that included the most skilled independent tailors and dressmakers and could pay enough to nurture the craftsmen so that they could pursue their businesses full-time.

(See the bios of all of the artisans that work with us and links to their own Etsy shops).

Vigilante Laboratories here on Etsy became the first outlet for their new work and new couture concept. This was followed by the MacheteNSons menswear shop here on Etsy.

For the first few years, Lianna and AJ literally did everything---from patternmaking, to sales, to cutting, sewing, fabric sourcing, photography, shipping, sewing machine repair, and modeling.

When visiting AJ's hometown of Denver, Colorado right at the time of the stock market crash, they purchased a Victorian cottage in an industrial area right near downtown to use as a workspace for the tailoring and dressmaking shop.

Now the studio has become an amazing hub filled with the most exciting designs and gorgeous projects. AJ and Lianna are still involved in the designing and making of every piece. And every piece is handmade from start to finish here in Denver.

After moving to Denver from NYC, they launched the blogs www.DenverDressmakers.com and www.DenverBespoke.com to market to local customers and to showcase their work.
