About the Brand
Fitz & Friends was founded to make great tailoring for all people no matter what their gender. When founder Katie Fitz reached the age when her friends all started getting hitched, one of the couples Katie loved the most came to her with a problem - being two women getting married they didn’t feel like they wanted to wear wedding dresses but also didn’t want to wear masculine suits and look like the groom. Hence Fitz & Friends was created, to make fantastic suits for everyone, but with a specialism in creating great tailoring for people who think gender norms are boring.
