The New American Tailor Shop
Articles of Style is re-inventing the American Tailor Shop by bringing traditional tailoring expertise and personal clothing service online.
After years of working in high-end bespoke menswear in New York City, and reviewing hundreds of suits from “online made-to-measure” brands, several things became clear to us. First, self-measuring doesn’t work, nor does training an amateur to be a “traveling tailor”. Second, cheap overseas garments need to be replaced within about a year, making them more expensive in the long-run. Third, a great tailor should not only create beautiful garments, but teach his clients how to dress with style and build a curated wardrobe that will last the test of time.
Our clients don’t need to book appointments, travel for fittings, or come anywhere near a measuring tape. We have a team of experienced tailors that provide personal expertise at every step of the tailoring process – from fabric selection, to personal fittings, to long-term wardrobe planning.
Thanks for visiting. If you have any questions feel free to contact us. We look forward to serving as your personal tailor and helping you build a world-class wardrobe.

Dan Trepanier Creative Director
Dan started Articles of Style from his college dorm room after being named “America’s Best Dressed Real Man” by Esquire magazine in 2009. He studied psychology at Columbia University, where he was recruited to play NCAA basketball, but spent most of his time on the streets of NYC falling in love with menswear and learning everything he could about tailoring. He has a degree in Menswear History & Design from the Fashion Institute of New York, five years bespoke tailoring experience, and can still play above the rim.
Will Howe Director of Operations
Will also developed his NY chops first at Columbia, where he studied International Relations and was a four year heavyweight rower. After graduating he spent four years at Google, starting in display advertising before moving to the Global Business Strategy team. He left the comfy corporate life to spend a year traveling the world, eventually winding up in Los Angeles where he reunited with Dan. Since then he’s been determined to help Articles of Style make the leap from style blog to full-service clothier and online destination for the modern man.
Alex Crawford Art Director
Alex studied photography at Belmont University in Nashville. After graduating he moved to Brooklyn and got a Master’s in Fine Arts at the Pratt Institute. He met Dan while showing his work in galleries in New York, and the two hit it off instantly. He’s a southern gentleman with a unique Texas-meets-California sense of style whose work has been published in major online and print magazines around the world.
Westley Dimagiba Editorial Director
Wes was born and raised on the lower east side of New York City. His first job in menswear was shining shoes as a boy, where he observed how gentlemen dressed and learned the fundamentals. He went on to study Business Management at Brooklyn College, and in 2012 became our first official intern. His internship with AoS lead him to a career in menswear; he spent the last three years selling bespoke menswear and refining his technical skills in tailoring. Now that AoS has moved back in NYC, we’re very excited to have him back on the squad – even though he’s always been family.
Ben Howe Web Development
Ben discovered programming while working on a food truck in Seattle. His culinary and technology interests grew in tandem and led him first to fine French dining in New Orleans, and then to fine American tailoring in New York. He studies computer science at Columbia University, and brings his apron and knife out of retirement regularly.
Our Factory: Southwick USA
We believe in the longevity of classic style, not the fleeting and wasteful nature of “fast fashion” which is killing our planet. That’s why we make all of our garments right here in America using responsible manufacturing techniques and uncompromising craftsmanship.
Our manufacturing partner Southwick Clothing is one of the oldest and most historically renowned factories in America. Since 1929 they have been synonymous with authentic American style, natural shoulder comfort, and understated elegance.
Having a direct day-to-day relationship with our manufacturer is what allows us to provide the level of individual service and personal attention that you would expect from an in-person tailor shop, but with the added convenience, marketability and reach of e-commerce.
