Some guys just wear suits better than others: confident, graceful athletes, ruthlessly dapper businessmen, and of course, hirsute Australian pygmies infatuated with stabby murder rampages. Now making it easier to dress like the latter, Duchess Off the Rack.
Armed with newly expanded Southern-courtroom-meets-country-club digs, the ladies of Duchess have unveiled an OTR line inspired by custom suit & dress shirt work that's found its way onto the backs of everyone from the afore-described Nick Cave to John Hodgman, the last guy you'd expect to see in gear fit for a Mac daddy. Currently on the suiting side are the '60s inspired, Beatle-y thin #9 in grey herringbone wool, the tweed, turn-o'-century hunting regalia riff Dartsmouth, and the classic, all-purpose black alpaca wool Mr. Famous, named after Audrey Hepburn's dog, so it'll help you get all the bitches despite your Funny Face. Because even the finest suit looks idiotic sans-shirt, Duchess offers a variety for every occasion, veering towards slim-but-not-tight lines, brief tails that can tuck or no, standby colors like business blue & so-what-if-I'm-wearing pink, and options like French cuffs, or less formal contrasting stitching and sleeve epaulets like those found in the office-to-weekend, "slightly devious" Dewey, suggesting Melvil knew his system was confounding and was basically just screwing with us for kicks.
Duchess is also plying their skills towards a full selection of ties (both bow and standard, including a couple of killer tweeds), plus pocket squares in fabrics like bright Thai silk or psychedelic flowered cotton -- the product of one bad seed, it's resplendent enough that you could wear it with just your Birthday suit.
