For years I’d watched my female and trans clients struggle to figure out what to wear to their wedding. My many lesbian and queer clients who wanted to wear a suit or tux were faced with three bad options: hunt around on the internet and in department stores; buy a man’s suit and have it tailored to fit their body; or have a custom suit made. I struggled with this myself when planning my own wedding to Jen and I’m sure many of you know exactly what I’m talking about.
For years I wanted to solve this problem (except I’m not a fashion designer!) But I did meet the right fashion designer business partner and finally, 14 Stories is proud to introduce Fourteen, a line of ready to wear suits, tuxes and accessories especially for lesbian, queer and trans weddings. Fourteen is the first line of ready to wear garments specifically for this market. Shirts, jackets, pants, ties, vests and more are for sale now on www.FourteenStyle.com.
In the Fourteen clothing line, jackets and shirts have smaller armholes and shorter arm lengths, as well as a shorter torso measurement. Necklines and shirt cuffs are modified, more bust room added where needed, all without sacrificing design and style. All of our clothes were tested on and designed with the consultations of real life lesbians, queers and transmen.
Fourteen is designed by Miami-based clothing designer (and my business partner) Marialexandra Garcia. Marialexandra is a renowned and award winning fashion designer based in Miami. She led her eponymous design company to sales in over 60 US specialty stores and major retailers like Saks Fifth Avenue.
