The Founders.

HIM Clothing - The Founders Handmade Neckties Bow Ties Pocket Squares Custom Weddings Local Denver Colorado Groomsmen Gifts Mens Clothing

Hugh Hartigan and Chris Reynders

We are two local grown artists and self-taught tailors based in Denver, CO, and have been best friends since the days of kindergarten (five-years-old, to be exact). Hugh, an artist by trade, brings a wealth of artistic integrity with strong backgrounds in painting, drawing, print, and digital design. Chris is equally creative, focusing on more hands on forms of artistry, such as ceramics and playing a litany of musical instruments.
Together we founded HIM Clothing in 2013 to fulfill a desire to use our artistic creativity to produce responsibly sourced handmade accessories. As a truly dynamic duo, we design and build all of our products from the ground up, by hand. We take a huge amount of pride in saying that each and every product has been painstakingly crafted by one of us.
We use only the highest quality materials, supporting a strong local economy and ensuring that our carbon foot print stays as small as humanly possible. Our products are designed to suit everyday needs and built to withstand the test of time, to last as heirlooms. We love what we do and cannot wait to share our vision with the word!

The Machines.

Bessie and Crushinator

Those are the names of our two 1950s Singer Featherweight 221 sewing machines (our creativity may be lacking in this department). We create a majority of our products on these two little machines, both of which were hand-me-downs from Hugh's great-great grandmother. They don't have all of the bells and whistles of a more contemporary machine, but these little work horses never quit and make everything from our neckties and bows ties to our lapel flowers and wallets. Staying true to our design roots, we manufacture everything according to classical standards, but with a modern twist. These vintage machines are the living embodiment of that ideal.
