As if wedding planning wasn’t stressful enough, at some point you have to decide what you’re going to wear on your big day. If your everyday clothing choices don’t fit into traditional masculine-feminine stereotypes, you’re in for an even more difficult task.


Portland, Ore.-based Duchess Clothier puts the fun back into the process of dressing yourself for your wedding — or for any other special occasion, whether you’re a woman looking to wear a suit or a man hoping to build a custom set of jacket and slacks. The shop also has a San Francisco location.

The small shop makes the entire process welcoming, respectful and unintimidating, from setting a budget to getting measured to selecting every detail that will go into your suit. You’ll choose an overall style, along with stitching, buttons, fabric, silk lining and more — details you’ve probably never considered before. The experts at the shop pride themselves on listening to clients’ expectations and translating even the most inexperienced suit-wearer’s thoughts into a resplendent garment — and they pull it all off beautifully.


No matter what your offbeat style is, the ladies and gents of Duchess Clothier are in business to help your suit dreams come true. They’ll even work with you if you live out of town, provided you give them enough lead time to work out the logistical details.
