I started designing my own clothing over a decade ago because I was struggling to find garments that felt comfortable to me--both aesthetically and physically.
I was constantly at war with my wardrobe: pants that were too stiff and tight and made my waist ache, fussy blouses or dresses that only looked good when adjusted "just-so", or colors and fabrics that felt unnatural against my skin.
My initial endeavor to solve these functional and stylistic issues for myself turned into a deep love for the transformative power of (the right) clothing, and a devotion to changing the way an archaic industry treats its workers, customers, and natural resources.
I hope that I can share some of my experience with you through my work and help you feel more at home and at peace when getting dressed.
When you feel at home in your body and in touch with what clothes it, you are free to focus your energy on what matters most. That's what I want for you.

Some kind words from our customers...
Forever piece. The quality and style are impeccable. I will have this piece for many, many years - timeless!
Worth every cent! This is my second pair of Clyde Work Pants (previously purchased a pair 6 years ago which I still wear and love)...They are such a beautifully designed pair of pants. I wear them casually on the weekend and dressed up with a blazer for work. I will be wearing these for years to come.
My favourite trouser pattern ever! Instructions are clear and the final product is a dream. I plan to make this in different fabrics. The extra large pockets are life!
Stylish wardrobe staple. This piece (like all ES garments I've purchased) is well made, and wears beautifully...I view ES pieces as lifelong investments because they're timeless in style, and very durable. ES has shown me the value in buying less, but spending more for quality. If you're on the fence, go for it!
This may be my favorite sweater ever. The weight of the wool is warm without bulk. The design is elegant and flattering, the swing shows off the body without hugging or looking like a tent. Will definitely consider other colors, thank you Elizabeth Suzann for making clothes that fit so many bodies. I am so happy.
