Vacation Finds: Our New Favorite Houston Hangouts

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

One of our favorite aspects of Houston is that you don’t have to go far to stumble on something new and exciting. And now that we’re back in the workshop after our annual vacation, we can’t help but to reflect on some of the recent finds that we discovered around the city. If nothing else, consider them an excuse to step beyond your normal stomping grounds.

We’ve heard great things over the past several months about Mongoose v. Cobra and it still surpassed expectations. It’s a must for anyone who likes craft beer, fine spirits and incredible cocktails. With an open rustic-chic floor plan, the atmosphere is perfect for a relaxing drink after work (and a great place to linger past midnight). Mongoose v. Cobra also features a small, but well-curated food menu—the Brätwurst being a notable favorite. 1011 McGowen St., Houston, TX 77002  (713) 650-6872




Specializing in Indian-fusion, Indika has amassed a considerable reputation (around the city and across the country) for its unique dishes and flavor pairings. While you can’t go wrong ordering off of their standard menu, we particularly enjoy their “No-menu Wednesdays” where they experiment with different spices, ingredients and techniques to keep things interesting. 516 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77006 – (713) 524-2170

Tucked away in the Rice University campus, this unassuming gallery exhibits site-specific installations by world-renowned visual artists from Yayoi Kusama to El Anatsui. The Rice University Art Gallery itself is specific to installation art, meaning that you are fully immersed within the work(s) on display rather than simply approaching pieces hung on a wall. The current show (“Crossing the Farther Shore” by Vietnamese-American artist Dinh Q. Lê) is on view until
August 28th and is well worth experiencing before it comes down. 6100 Main St., Houston, Texas 77005

Closed: Hamilton Summer Vacation

Sunday, August 3, 2014

It’s that time of year when we leave the fabric where it is, turn off the sewing machines, and enjoy our annual (and much-beloved) two-week summer vacation. Our workshop will be closed from August 4th-17th, but we will be back to rev up for the coming season on Monday, August 18th!

See you soon.

The Difference Between Made-to-Measure & Bespoke

Monday, July 21, 2014


We’ve recently received some questions about the differences between our Made-to-Measure and Bespoke shirts. At first glance, it can be somewhat difficult to wrap your head around, but the distinctions between the two are actually quite simple.

In the most basic sense, the difference lies in the degree of customization. Whereas our Bespoke service is essentially limitless in terms of designing a custom shirt, our Made-to-Measure offerings are crafted from a curated selection of our most popular styles and fabrics—many of which change with the seasons.


It’s worth nothing that both Bespoke and Made-to-Measure shirts are handmade to match your specific measurements. So visit us online, in our Houston workshop, or at one of our many retailers to determine your perfect fit. Please note however that our Bespoke shirts are only available in person with a retail specialist to guide you through every step of the process.

In the meantime, click here to learn more about our Bespoke and Made-to-Measure offerings.

Julep: A Celebration of Southern Cocktails & Cuisine

Monday, June 30, 2014

It’s hard to imagine now, but ice was once an incredibly sought-after commodity in the South. In fact, it was an emblem of extreme wealth during most of the 19th century. Ice was not only an ingredient in Southern cocktails, but was also a means by which the upper classes could enjoy fresh shellfish and other seafood far away from the coast.


Fascinated by the history of Southern cocktails and cuisine, Houston mixologist-turned-entrepreneur Alba Huerta is launching Julep—a brand new cocktail lounge devoted to reviving the warmth, hospitality, and drinking culture of the South. Drawing from her formative experience at Anvil and The Pastry War, Huerta developed an extensive menu of historically inspired cocktails and food items, placing a special emphasis on Southern spirits & raw shellfish.

While the entire experience is centered around sharing Southern heritage, Julep is also unique in that it celebrates the rise of female mixologists and barowners—a notable point of progress from the male-dominated industry of yesteryear. As such, the interior will feature a slightly feminine touch, adding to the nostalgic nuances of copper countertops and an extensive back porch.

Stay tuned to Julep’s website and Facebook for details concerning their opening. And when you visit, be sure to take a look at the custom Hamilton shirts designed for the male staff!
