Last night we attended the opening of my friend Melissa's handcrafted men's wear store, Crow Thief. She is an amazing designer and each of her pieces is unique. She uses beautiful quality fabric and each of her pieces is assembled right here in California. It is not very often you find clothing made in the USA anymore and I'm happy to support her and her company.
Everything about her storefront is beautiful from the clock in front to the reclaimed wood on the walls. It is a great environment reflective of the designs it holds inside.
Each of her exquisite pieces is produced in limited quantity and numbered. She also creates custom pieces in the Custom Craftsmanship division of her company. You can call to schedule an appointment for a piece custom designed just for you. If you don't live in the San Diego area, you're not left out, you can purchase this handcrafted menswear online- here.
There were drinks, appetizers and even live screen printing with a custom design. You know how I love fashion and clothing, so I was happy they had something there for me to buy as well! I have never seen a shirt screen printed before and it was really cool to see my shirt being made. Expect to see me wear it soon.
The Screen Printed Shirts
Crow Thief is located in the cute community of South Park, I haven't spent much time in the area, but that might have to change soon. It is located just southeast of Balboa Park and has some great shops and restaurants, including Alchemy, who catered the opening last night. They even have their own wine label. Their food and wine was delicious, we will be headed there soon for dinner.
