You know we love Christopher Schafer and all he does. You may have heard us sing his praises for his work with the Baltimore Fashion Alliance— which promotes local designers and helps creative, fashion-minded Baltimoreans find their footing in the fashion industry. Or perhaps we were in awe of the time and labor he gives to Sharp Dressed Man, through which he supports low-income men re-entering the workforce by providing them with high quality, gently used menswear– which can often make or break a man’s opportunities for employment. But all of that isn’t even Schafer’s primary occupation.  For the last five years, Schafer has been Baltimore’s leading clothier for gorgeous, unique menswear– making this town just that much more easy on the eyes. And every local man with an eye for style is grateful for that (as are the women who love them). Well, today Schafer’s circle of influence is about to widen, as the clothier launches his new online store– a first for the company. Online, customers will be able to purchase Schafer’s handmade silk ties, bow ties, pocket squares and accessories. And since this also marks the company’s 5th Anniversary, there’s even an added perk– Schafer’s way of celebrating and saying “thank you.”

Everyday, the Christopher Schafer online store is offering a “Deal of the Day”– and what a deal it is. Each day, from now until the end of the year, a different item will be offered at 50% off for 24 hours. That means a whole lot of great holiday gifts, accessories for Holiday parties, and personal indulgences you can nab at amazing prices. Items you can find as Deals of the Day include ties, bow ties, pocket squares and lapel pins. All you need to do is check out the online store or the Christopher Schafer Facebook page to see what the day holds.

“I’m really excited about the launch of this online store because it’s the next chapter in the evolution of the CSC label,” Schafer says. The ties and bow ties are made in very limited runs, so the online store is “a great way for more customers to see the variety that we actually have in stock at a given time.” He’s also excited about the ties themselves, because they are of such high quality: “What makes our ties unique is that they’re individually handmade, self-tipped, self-looped and self-backed, which means that you can feel the quality in your hands.” Of course, that’s what makes a visit to the store so satisfying– the ability to see and feel the quality up close. But even online, the quality of Schafer’s line is obvious. This is a man who simply produces the finest menswear available.  And now, it’s even easier to find.

Christopher Schafer Clothier is located at 1400 Aliceanna Street in Baltimore. Their online shop (and more information) can be found at www.christopherschafer.com/shop/. Schafer will also be featured at Fashion Rocks Autism, on November 16th.
