"Great experience from first to last."
I worked with Todd at W.T. Clothiers over Spring 2018 to have a women’s custom blazer and three-piece suit made (jacket, pants, vest). From start to finish my experience was superb. After sending my inquiry via the website, Todd swiftly returned my call to get a feel for what I was looking for, the timing I was looking to have items completed by, and the basics of pricing among different fabrics. I visited his store in Fairfax about a week later (two doors down from a great coffee shop, which was a plus) for my initial fitting and appointment. I’ll confess the fitting took longer than I’d planned – so budget extra, it’s extremely thorough– but it was more than worthwhile since I could be confident throughout the process that the end-result would fit me very well. While I had a generic idea of what I was looking for, it was also at that appointment that Todd sat with me to discuss different fabric options and colors. In terms of choices, there are simply tons. My three-piece suit ended up a dark grey (almost pewter) in a fabric that has some stretch to it; for someone moving around a lot that was a must for me. That said, there were probably roughly a dozen colors that I could have chosen from, from light grey to navy blue to bolder primary colors. While the stretch suit fabric is a bit more limited in color options, for everything else there are literally binders full of things to choose from – suit color, inner lining, details, buttons. You name it, Todd has a wide selection for it. I opted for the more conventional suit fabrics for my blazer. I didn’t have a clear idea in mind of what I was looking for in terms of color, so I commend Todd for gauging my personality, and throwing out some wide options in discussion to get a bit more feel of my style, things out of my comfort zone that I would try, etc. In the end, the blazer I ended up with was *way* out of my original color comfort zone -- and I’m so glad. I opted for a plaid purple and really orate inner lining . The end product is simply stunning; to say I get compliments when I wear either suit is ridiculous understatement. After the initial fitting and selection, the rest was straightforward. I came back twice; once for an initial fitting when things first came in, to make the usual minor adjustments, and the second for the pick up. Todd was easy to schedule with by email, and for pick-ups it was straightforward to drop by and work with his colleague to finalize payment if he was out with another client. Again, it was a great experience from first to last. The prices are a commitment, but it’s an investment, and you’ll get something unique that you’re thrilled with out of the process. I look forward to working with Todd again.
"Gushing over the purple blazer and grey suit!"
"You should know - completely unsurprisingly - that no fewer than a half dozen people have come up to me in the past month gushing over the purple blazer and grey suit. Thank you for the great pieces!" Elizabeth Grasmeder

Todd Baldwin has been my haberdasher for over 20 years. Every item Todd has made for me fits perfectly and I look forward to wearing his clothing each day. When a day arrives that my "last clean shirt" isn't one from Todd, I'll wear it but notice the difference all day. The tails are shorter, the pocket is a pain and the fit simply isn't good. I will make a point of leaving work early to stop at the dry cleaners to pick up my clean shirt made by Todd. I have a custom suit he urged me to order. One evening on the Acela back from a long day in New York, I was sitting quietly wearing the custom suit, a grey pinstripe with all the features I like (ticket pocket, pick stitching, contrast lining, pants liked to the knees, and contrasting stitching throughout). A woman stood up and walked over to me and stood in front of me. She whispered (it was in the Quiet Car): "excuse me, but I can't help but admire your suit! My goodness, where did you get such an elegant and refined suit? I hate to bother you but I had to ask!" I opened the jacket to show the label and write down Todd's information for her. I am proud to refer friends to Todd. Long ago I introduced Todd to a close friend -- his father owned the company where we both worked and built Crystal City from scratch. Since that meeting, my friend has become a lifelong client of Todd's -- this is over 20 years. My friend used to shop all over the world - literally flying to paris and London for suits, sportcoats and slacks. NO MORE. He gets all his clothing from Todd in the comfort of his office or his home. Todd's style of in-office or in-home shopping and deliver is old fashioned and no one does it anymore. He is so expert at measuring your physique that I simply let him do his job. I like my suit jackets sleeves a bit shorter to show 1/2" of my French cuffs. But he already knows that so its part of the program. Naturally, I recommend Todd highly and please contact me for any questions you may have. Professor J Morris Georgetown University

"I can't thank you enough for making me stand out as the best dressed man at my wedding."
Hi Todd, Thank you for the info about the Fall sale. You will be seeing me again once things settle down from our wedding. I wanted to write you and thank you for all of your help with my tuxedo. It looked immaculate, better than Drea and I could ever have imagined. I can't thank you enough for making me stand out as the best dressed man at my wedding. Attached are some pictures, even one of Nick and George! Thank you, Kevin Rohm & Andrea Carras (soon to be Rohm)
