Dear {Cut. Cloth.} Customers,

For as long as I can remember, I have been utterly smitten with all things vintage. I spent hours of my childhood watching films like Some Like It Hot and Annie Hall, listening to Ella Fitzgerald and Patsy Cline, and poring over photographs of my stylish grandmothers taken in the 1950s.

{Cut. Cloth.} LLC – a high-end vintage and vintage-inspired boutique based in New Haven – is the product of a lifelong love affair with charming objects from the 20th century. Over the past few months, we have scoured attics and the interweb to find you, our customers, well-tailored, vintage apparel in 100% silk, chiffon, wool, cotton and leather. Enjoy!

Sincerely,

Jan
