Meticulous tailoring, luscious romantic colors, and runway to street styles for men abound at Capitol Hill's own Michael Cepress Studio & Showroom. Upon entering the shop and looking through his collection I found myself individually taking each piece off the rack and examining the expertly crafted smart shapes and intricate details. Michael's recently revamped showroom is now a spacious gallery filled with clothing that could be considered nothing less than magnificent works of art. With the newly increased shop space Michael is looking forward to having a more expansive range of sizes and colors available on hand at any given time. Looking for something made precisely fit to your body and personality? Michael Cepress expertise lies in creating custom garments through consultations and several fittings with his customers to determine and then execute exactly what his customer wants.
With a Masters in Fine Arts in fibers from University of Washington and his undergraduate in textiles from University of Wisconsin he went on to gain extensive experience in tailoring and costume design through his work with several theaters including the 5th Avenue Theater and Seattle Opera as well as creating costumes for international plays. This mastery is clear amongst the 19th century inspired designs that are as fit for the runway as they are for being the sharpest dressed man on the street. I see Michael Cepress' shirts as being the kind of immortal pieces that your grandkids will be fighting over in your closet 40 years from now. Timeless, but with that little edge that becomes only more seasoned with years.
Stop by the store between Bellevue and Summit on Loretta Place in Capitol Hill. In addition to getting to see his collections in person you will find yourself having a great conversation with Michael and leaving feeling just a little more inspired.
