Currently in their fifth year, Miller’s Oath opened as a full bespoke tailoring service. In time, they’ve come to scale their offerings to provide ready-to-wear and made-to-measure, as well as a host of accessories all designed in-house and manufactured stateside.
“We spent about 2 years developing our ready-to-wear collection. We worked with three or four different factories and we just couldn’t get the details right. So to find someone that could do it and would work with us to get it right that was exciting and that’s when we really started to feel like it was coming together. “
And they’re known for their details. The house style jacket is a one-button, notch lapel with semi-roped shoulders and a cutaway front that mimics the morning coats of a bygone era, a cutaway that carries over to their exclusive shirt collar. The design is, in a word, inspired. The family owned and operated establishment is a nod to style at the turn of the century when their great-grandfather kept shop in Groton, South Dakota. Initially a dry goods store supplying miners that sought gold in the Black Hills, it became a one-stop shop, eventually including a tailoring service, for those heading to Chicago or Minneapolis after a successful tour. After all, there’s no better way to mark an accomplishment than a finely tailored garment.
The pick axe motif echoes that heritage, a long-standing tradition of American-made goods that Miller’s Oath continues to promote with an aesthetic all their own: elegant, formal, and undeniably masculine. Heavy tweeds, rustic olives and browns, regimental yet unrestrictive for a tailored lifestyle, not just time on the job. And with the introduction of their denim line, American-made of course, Miller’s Oath is now an option for every day of the week.
