Krammer & Stoudt is bringing its aesthetic to the tailored clothing business.
The independent men’s brand that is known for blending Southwest and Southern California influences with an East Coast bent, is teaming with Brooklyn-based master tailor Martin Greenfield Clothiers on a made-to-measure suit program that will launch on June 1. Additionally, Krammer & Stoudt is working with Newark, N.J.-based Mitch Gambert on a line of custom shirts.
The initiative will offer imported fabrics chosen by the brand and is intended to appeal to men who are seeking a custom fit in unique fabrications.
“The Krammer & Stoudt client lives and breathes creativity,” said designer Michael Rubin. “In whatever his occupation, he is the visionary. He wants to look appropriately sharp, but also wants to express himself confidently in his sartorial choices.”
Krammer & Stoudt will host private appointments with customers and take the initial measurements and help them select the fabric, style and fit. Once an order is submitted, it will take about five weeks to receive a finished suit and two weeks to receive a finished shirt. A second appointment for final fitting and adjustments may be necessary.
The suits will retail between $1,600 and $2,400 and shirts will average $250.
Krammer & Stoudt manufacturers its collection exclusively in the Garment District of New York City and sought out partners who also produce in the U.S.
“When we made the decision to launch our made-to-measure program, it was important to us to keep the cut-and-sew operations in the United States,” Rubin explained. “We’re lucky to have some of the best tailors in the world, right here in our backyard, that are able to help us fulfill our vision to create the highest-quality, domestically made custom shirts and suits.”
Special events with retail partners will be scheduled in Manhattan and Brooklyn over the next several months.
Krammer & Stoudt was launched in Los Angeles in 2012 by Rubin and his wife Courtenay Nearburg. Rubin is a Southern California native, a surfer and a skater, and started his career airbrushing surfboards in Huntington Beach.
