Spirited and modern, updated and authentic, TailorByrd is the menswear brand that helps men feel good and look great. TailorByrd combines original design, quality fabrics and make, and a unique point of view. It’s for the customer who believes that while fashion may come and go, style never fades.
The leading men’s stores in the country carry TailorByrd because it is distinctive, and sold only by retailers that hold themselves to a higher standard of taste, merchandise, and service. We rely on those retail partners to represent our design and merchandising philosophy. One that showcases our sportswear, accessories and tailored clothing in a way that allows TailorByrd, season after season, to communicate a message of quality and style.
