Philosophy

Why we do it

We’ve invested a lot of energy learning the sartorial arts, and we genuinely enjoy putting that expertise to work for you.  

Time is the ultimate luxury, so if you’re too busy to think about your wardrobe, we'd love to help.

Need to make a stellar first impression at an important, upcoming event? Consider it done.

Perhaps your life has changed, and you want your daily wardrobe to more accurately reflect where you are, or where you'd like to be.  We got you.

And if you’re a clotheshorse who loves being on trend, you'll want to visit us regularly.  

We do this because we love seeing you leave our shop looking amazing and feeling confident that your outfit is totally unique to you.  

We do it so we can be the place you tell your friends about because they won’t stop asking you where you get your clothes. 

We strive to be the only ones you’d consider taking your son to see when he needs the suit.
  
We're proud that many of Portland’s most successful and influential people trust us to be their Clothier. 

You’ll fit right in.

Striking the ideal balance between tradition and trend, Michael Allen's brings unique pieces to the table that embrace new ideas but stay rooted in wearability.  

We make sure you’re dressed the way you want to dress for any occasion: whether it's exuding professionalism at work, turning heads at milestone events, relaxing on your vacation, or simply spending quality time at home.

Our story

That’s Mike and Spencer.   

Mike created Michael Allen’s Clothier in 1992 with some fabrics, a tape measure and a phone, in the second bedroom of his Northwest Portland apartment. 

He’s a Native Oregonian who’s been a prominent voice in the world of fashion for decades, steadily honing both his eye for style and his craft of creating custom clothing.   

Spencer likes treats, going for walks, and hanging out in the shop all day bossing Mike around. 

Michael Allen’s specializes in high-end gentleman's fashion. We offer a wide selection of only the finest ready-made designer menswear, but our team is best known for our expert customization capabilities, including bespoke-tailored suits, sport coats, pants, outerwear, accessories, and casual clothing for men and women.   

The heart of downtown Portland is our home, but we've grown to become the premier luxury clothing destination in the Pacific Northwest, and proud to serve our customers all across the United States and beyond.

Bespoke

Everyone's built differently, and our custom-made clothing is designed from the ground up to fit and flatter you, just the way you are.

It's made the way your great-grandparent's tailor probably did it, with your own paper pattern, full-canvas linings in the jackets, and your choice of finishings, but with a contemporary style and a wide selection of incredible fabrics.

We've outfitted entire wedding parties (including brides!), dressed people for award shows, and even done tuxedos for dogs. If you can imagine it, chances are we can create it.

There's nothing quite like the feeling of putting on clothing that was created specifically for you. Drop by to find out for yourself, or if time is short, set up an appointment by hitting the button below.
