Rittenhouse’s Soon-to-Open Wayne Edwards Workshop Will Create Custom Shirts and Suits for Groom & Their Groomsmen
For years—since 1970, actually—Wayne Edwards has been outfitting Philly men in stylish sportswear and snappy suits, and now, with the Locust street location closed for a few years, owner Wayne Glassman is embarking on a new adventure: The Wayne Edwards Workshop.
The boutique, which is located on the second floor of 1710 Sansom and designed by architect Stuart Rosenberg (who also did Joan Shepp’s new boutique, the LAGOS flagship on Walnut and Philly’s Le Meridien) will include beautiful ready-to-wear—cashmere sweaters John Lange, Drake’s handmade ties, MacIntosh raincoats, and lots more—as well as something every groom and his dudes out there need: perfectly fitted suits and shirts.
The shop’s custom line will include shirts (starting at $145) and suits ($925) designed from scratch. If you’re a groom who, say, is considering getting each of his groomsmen a custom shirt as a gift for being a part of the Big Day, everyone can come in together to get fitted and start the process with a little private party. If you’re a groom who’d like to go to the whole wedding-suit thing with your father, they’ll arrange for that to be a special outing, too. And whatever you choose for your wedding day, the experts there can steer you towards something you’ll actually wear again.
The boutique is slated to open in a few weeks (we’ll keep you posted!), but until then (when walk-ins will be welcome), you can actually still make an appointment. Just get in touch and they’ll get you started.
