Crisp, sharply-pressed suits. Classic cufflinks. Patterns aplenty, and custom designs.
That’s what Denver men’s fashion is all about, and also why it’s one of my favorite genres to photograph.
The Bespoke Edge, a custom menswear company that’s based out of Boulder, is the premier option for these fashion commodities. From a fresh new suit to a personalized dress shirt, this family-owned (and local) business can do it all. Over in the wedding industry, where I spend a good portion of my time, they’re one of my most trusted vendors when it comes to men’s fashion.
This spring, we collaborated on a simple shoot up in Boulder, where Ryan and Brett spend the majority of their time. Ryan runs the blog that’s rife with style tips, and Brett focuses on the design and art direction pieces. The whole shebang is chaired by their father, Ron, who has more than 30 years of experience in the industry.
For someone as nostalgic and small-business-minded like myself, it was a no-brainer when these gentlemen asked to work together.
Plus, let’s be honest; a custom, tailored suit just always looks so much better than something you rent for a big event like a wedding or company work party.
For this particular shoot, we focused on some of their lighter designs to fit the spring setting of our session. The gents kept their colors in the pastel spectrum and paired their custom shirts with neutrals like khaki and a classic pair of dark-wash jeans.
Take a peek below at my top frames from their springtime men’s fashion shoot, including one of my all-time favorite images at the very bottom. Thank you for stopping by the blog!
