Seattle impressed us with their innovative approaches to classic suiting. In our July pop-up in the emerald city, Sharpe co-designed some of the most interesting suits we’ve seen yet in their made-to-measure consults. We think Seattle’s got style!
The visit was a whirlwind of consults as just Leon Wu, Sharpe founder, could be spared from the LA atelier for this trip as all hands were on deck to get the community’s orders to them. July 8 & 9 sure were a busy couple of days, and a real commendation goes to the behind-the-scenes work of Seattle native Chelsea Nelson for help on setting-up the event, with special honor for her influence on local community.
The trip was delightfully full of the classic cool weather, and greenery that everyone expects of Seattle. That, and the style ideas of the locals we met with gave us some exciting ideas for a northwestern look… Keep your eyes out for future collections and collaborations!
