New Taylor Tailor Design!

After two and a half years of using a free WordPress theme, I’ve finally got myself a brand new custom design for the blog! My first theme wasn’t necessarily bad considering it was free, but my wife and I actually own and run a web and graphic design business. I was long overdue for a, um… “tailored” design. We’ve been so busy the last couple of years (a good thing of course) that we rarely have time to work on personal projects.

While I was off adjusting my shirt pattern this past weekend, my wife surprised me by designing a new theme for Taylor Tailor. Isn’t she awesome? The logo is based off of the vintage Taylor Tailor sign I picked up off of eBay a while back. I now have a wider area for my images, and overall a nice clean, simple look. I couldn’t be happier with it.

In addition to learning how to make my own clothes, I’ve also started learning how to make my own beer! With the new design I’ll be adding a section about my brewing adventures, so don’t be surprised if you see a beer post here and there thrown in amongst the denim, shirts, and other sewing projects.

Now that my content area is wider, I have to re-edit the images I had planned for the backpack I made with the canvas I posted about a few weeks ago. As soon as I re-size the images I’ll get the backpack posted.

    Loving the new design…and I see you used the found signage lettering for your logo…nice touch!

    Thank you for your “double barreled” inspiration that this blog gives me. First, making it cool and honorable to be a man that sews menswear (Trust me I get stares all the time in the fabric stores here in Atlanta) and also to keep sewing no matter how daunting the project… I just finished two pairs of jeans for myself from a doctored pattern and I’m about to start on some khakis and maybe a flannel shirt!

    I’ll definitely hit up the store when I need supplies! Thank you again…

      Hi Kwesi,

      Nice to hear from another guy who sews menswear! It is odd how people are so surprised when they encounter a guy interested in making clothing. Especially considering the long history of male tailors and all of the famous designers of both men’s and women’s clothing who are men.

      Keep on sewing and stay in touch!

      Taylor
