Fashion today has a problem with overconsumption. We produce too much, sacrificing quality in the name of quantity. Celebrity tailor Patrick Henry aka Rich Fresh built a brand in antithesis to these ideas and instead functions essentially as a modern couture house. After Fresh taught himself to sew at the age of 13, he quickly clued into the power of fashion, utilizing it as his own personal armor. "I get to high school and I'm really cool because I dress nicely," explains. "I didn't feel cool before." Growing up somewhere like Memphis, most are not privy to the conventional fashion path to success. So Fresh took the next logical step, putting his sewing skills to work handling alterations for dry cleaners. After exhausting the fashion scene in Memphis, he traveled to New York to gain tailoring experience and eventually ended up in L.A. There he struggled with a few different creative endeavors that left him broke and homeless, then channeled everything he had left into his bespoke tailoring company, Rich Fresh.

His approach to luxury suiting clicked on the red carpet, attracting clients like Lena Waithe, The Weeknd, and Justin Bieber—is a certain peach suit coming to mind? Since then, Fresh has launched tracksuits, ready-to-wear, and even transferred his talents into masks during the pandemic with his line Henry Masks. His icons? No surprise here—Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Tom Ford. Now that his portfolio is much more diversified, the connective tissue is an extreme attention to fit. "I'm very obsessive about the way my clothes fit on my body," he says, similar to his approach to tailoring. After taking millions of measurements ahead of time, "when it's done, it's done," he says. "I'm going to see you in a few days and when I see you, I'll have a masterpiece." In his closet, you'll find multiple iterations of his own designs along with next level accessories—think Bottega Veneta mules and custom sneakers. Continue to discover what lies inside his heavily-curated closet.
