Custom Clothing

Custom clothing isn't really about luxury or expense. It's about getting what you want the way you want it. Much of that has to do with fit. The simple fact is we aren't all a size medium or 40 regular. Each client has subtle irregularities in their body that makes clothing fit them differently. We pride ourselves on attending to those areas like posture, shoulder stance and chest prominence.  That's what we do. The options are seemingly endless. We aim to ensure your custom clothing experience is as simple or as detailed as you prefer. We offer custom suiting under our house label as well as from Hickey Freeman and Oxxford Clothes. Measurements are kept on file and updated at each visit.


The shirt is the cornerstone of a gentleman's wardrobe. Our custom shirts start off as bolts of cloth in the finest mills around the world. We mold that cloth into the shirt of your dreams. Our shirts are made in the USA by the finest shirt makers. We offer expert guidance on creating shirts that flatter your body type and personal style. Styles range from tuxedo shirts to polos.


Suits, jackets, pants, vests and overcoats are but a few things our 5,000 plus fabric swatches can be used to create. Our keen understanding of body shapes and sizes as well as a knowledge of what fabrics work for those shapes help create properly fitting suits and jackets. Measurements are taken at your first appointment and updated regularly.

Mark Metzger, the gent in the dinner jacket, brings with him over 30 years experience in custom clothing and tailoring.  In 2007, he moved Highcliffe Clothiers to Middleburg from Washington, D.C. where it has become a fixture in the Virginia Hunt Country.  He is a two term President of the Custom Tailors and Designers Association and has served continually as an active board member since 1999. A devoted angler, Mark was a World Championship Carp Fisherman for the 2005 Team USA.  Mark has exceptional luck at games of chance, the envy of friends and family, and starts every morning perusing the obituaries in search of a life well-lived.  

Emily Hemby, the grand dame of Highcliffe, has been providing our customers with exceptional service since 2009.  She has a deep appreciation for items made in the USA, many of which are featured on our shelves.  On her days off she can be found at the baseball diamond cheering on her son or settling in with a glass of Riesling and a rollicking good comedy.

Philip Miller, the maverick in the driver’s seat, started his dapper journey as a sartorial savant at the tender age of ten, taking a pocket knife to the cuffs of an oxford shirt so he could wear cufflinks.  This led him to develop a line of cufflinks and men’s accessories inspired by his love of cars and the sporting life, as well as becoming Highcliffe’s head of marketing in 2012.  In his off hours, Philip relaxes with cigars and whiskey as well as historical non-fiction and DIY projects around his home.  He is inspired by stylish films and their stars - James Bond, Cary Grant and Steve McQueen.
