What do you make?
I curate a fine selection of menswear and antiques. I also do in-store and market visual merchandising.

How did you get your start?
I was collecting vintage and got laid off from my day job so I started selling my collection and it just kind of clicked. Shortly after I began working for Bobby from Boston, who has taught me so much about the industry and history.

Who is your product perfect for?
Those who pay great attention to detail. The well-dressed with an eye for true classic stylings. 


What is the story behind your business name?
It began as a play on "sprucing up" your wardrobe but soon evolved into the outdoorsy looks that I love collecting. 

What inspires you?
Traveling and meeting amazing people during my collecting excursions. 

What do like to do in your free time?
Add to my own personal collection and explore my urban (and not so urban) surroundings.
