Artist of the Day / A.J. Machete and Sons Clothier

I’ve finally found some men’s clothing that I like as much (almost) as the women’s clothing I’ve featured.  Below the photos is just one of their item descriptions.


We designed this coat for a customer who loved the styles of the 18th century but wanted a coat that he could wear for every day business.
