Christopher Schafer, Christopher Schafer Clothier

Christopher learned the art of measuring & design while living in London, a city that had a profound effect on his life. 

While immersed in the English culture, he absorbed the sensibilities of some of the world's best clothiers while being trained in the skills he would need to execute his own vision of the classic English style. During his time in London, Christopher would frequently visit Saville Row and Jermyn Street to observe and gather inspiration. The end result was a new approach to men's clothing that blends European style and fit with a modern attention to detail, clean, understated lines, and comfort.
