Work or play, we got your back! Kipper Clothiers has everything from suits to jeans and henleys!

Inspired by the environment around us and by the styles of the Bay Area, we are introducing a new line of clothing that isn’t only practical, but is also ideal for those who like to keep it casual and for those who like to dress up!

Introducing Kipper Casual; Kipper Clothiers is a “one-stop-shop” for everyone looking for expertly tailored clothing that makes having a luxurious lifestyle… well, not such a big deal.

Choose from our made-from-scratch henleys, polos, and jeans in all your traditional colors, like black and white, to more bold color styles like burgundy and aquamarine blue with charming, plaid accents.

Using only the best materials, such as soft jersey cotton and cotton piqué, we are going to say it out loud and proud, because we know you’re thinking it too: “you mean I can have my everyday favorites made to fit the way they’re meant to fit, and I can mix and match them with my suits I made at Kipper Clothiers, too?”

Yes, that’s exactly what we mean.

Wear these polos, henleys, and denim jeans for everything from Sunday brunch, to Fridays at work, and even to vacations abroad with the family! Or, be “smart-casual” and combine your polos, henleys, and denim jeans with an unconstructed suit jacket and some sneakers or oxfords! The possibilities don’t end there! These casuals can be for lounging, sporting activities, and that date with your special someone!

At Kipper Clothiers, we are committed to bringing you not only quality casual garments and suits, but we want to make sure that the options are available so that you can have all the right type of access to construct a collection of garments that are entirely you!

The Kipper Curator's Anthology: Essential Ties For The Collection

Like many people we dig accessories; from watches to jewelry, to lapel pins and ties, we run-a-muck in that business, but before it can even become our favorite we add it to our collection for our own personal fancy. We started off with the essentials, however, and we suggest our clients do the same.

"Black-Tie Optional" Weddings: Know The Rules So You Can Break Them

Preparing for weddings are difficult whether you’re the groom, bride, best man, or just a witness you should look your best and also be dressed appropriately. How do you tell what’s appropriate, however, when the wedding invitation says: “black-tie optional” or “semi-formal wedding?”

The Different Types of Appointments at Kipper Clothiers

The Different Types of Appointments at Kipper Clothiers

When it comes to making sure your suit gets done on time and at your own leisure, we at Kipper Clothiers are all about organization. We want to make sure that you come in at a time that iss most convenient for you so you all you need to concentrate on is designing your suit over a glass of complimentary whiskey or coffee (and don’t worry, we have good taste in beverages).

The Etiquette of Matching

The Etiquette of Matching

What are some questions you ask yourself when you first put your suit on? “What matches my suit? What matches my tie? Is this all too ‘clash-y?’ This is my favorite color, but what goes well with a color like this?” Don’t worry, those questions are normal and happen very often, even to the best of us. 

The Perfect Fitting Shirt

The Perfect Fitting Shirt

If there is one thing we stress the most, it's the perfect fit, and as we continue to grow our business we are redefining the custom process. Close attention to detail, and taking the right measurements is the formula for the perfect fitting garment. It's more than taking your clothes (made for the masses) and having them altered at a tailor, it's having them made specifically measured for you as an individual that defines what we do. 

Suits x Sneakers: When is it Appropriate?

Suits x Sneakers: When is it Appropriate?

The Kipper team likes to get into wild discussions about all the same feelings and questions everyone has when wearing sneakers with a suit: “When is the right and wrong time to wear them? Do they actually look good with a suit?"

The Kipper Clothiers Cloth Series: Cotton Suiting

For the spring and summer, Kipper Clothiers suggests you gather some knowledge about cotton suiting, and why they are your best choice to keep cool on sunny days while still looking refined and in control. 

Aspiring for the Perfect Fit

Aspiring for the Perfect Fit

As we move through our lives (going to college, starting careers), it becomes more important to present ourselves well. It doesn't have to mean wearing a suit and tie, but it does mean looking well kept and presentable. In our profession, we often talk about quality, fit, and attention to detail when it comes to garments, but what about the feeling you get when you have the perfect fit?

The Kipper Cloth Series: Wool Suiting

Italian wool, worsted wool, tweed wool … There’s only so many different types of wool, but there are many different types of way the wool is constructed. Typically, suits are often made of some type of wool. Sometimes, suits are made of cotton or linen for really specific types of weather, but mostly suits are given their more charming characteristics based on the form of wool used to construct it. So, you must be wondering then… what’s the difference between worsted wool and Italian wool? Which wool is best to wear for which occasion? An even more important question is why is wool such an important material in suiting, anyway?

Wool is special in that it can be made in several different ways to give the suit different characteristics all within a reasonable price range, but sometimes certain wool options have different types of perks. Suits can be constructed with soft, fine wool, but the suit’s durability would decrease to compensate for the luxury of the material. The opposite happens too in which suits can be made with thicker wool which keeps it shape, allows for more color ways, and ultimately lasts longer.

Here’s a short-hand list of some common wool types that are great for your suit and wallet:

Worsted Wool - The best balance of price, durability, and feel. Worsted wool is soft, can withstand wear, and is a lightweight material that is great year round. It is made with fine threads of wool that is woven in such a way that the fibers lie parallel, giving you the best combination of softness and luxury without being too expensive.

Wool Flannel - Is both climate-strong and comfortable. Wool flannel is loosely spun; it remains both soft and warm, and is perfect for fall and lighter winters. Suits made in wool flannel will be mildly heavier than its worsted wool cousin and is typically a little more expensive, but when looking for a suit to keep you warm wool flannel is your best bet.

Wool Tweed - The heaviest of wools! The Irish and Scottish love their tweed because it keeps them warm even when they’re participating in outdoor activities like hunting or shooting. Suits made of tweed are moisture-resistant and durable, so it’ll even protect you from snowy weather. Tweed is woven in a twill pattern (herringbone, houndstooth, etc.) which not only gives it texture, but also allows for plenty of color.

Wool Cashmere - The most luxurious of wools (so they say). Cashmere is obtained from goats instead of sheep, unlike other wools, and is the finest and softest of wool materials without sacrificing too much durability. Cashmere drapes elegantly and doesn’t easily crease, but it does tend to be the most expensive of wools. 

Kipper proposes that proper maintenance of your suits, no matter what material they are, will give them longer life spans. So, as long as you practice proper suit care you can definitely treat yourself with more luxurious materials. Come into Kipper Clothiers and see which wool is best for you! 

 

You Can't Put a Price on Quality

You Can't Put a Price on Quality

At Kipper Clothiers, we value quality over everything. The term, cost per wearis thrown around daily in our world of fashion, and recently, we've seen multiple articles on the subject. People are starting to shift into the mindset of; quality over quantity, ultimately getting a longer lifetime out of their garments.
