Fashion is in the family for Kirk Miller, who owns this custom menswear shop. In 1906, his great-grandfather owned Miller Bros. Exclusive Clothiers in South Dakota, a Midwest landmark for hand-tailored clothes. A century later, Miller, who honed his craft at Seize sur Vingt, Paul Stuart, and Thom Browne, helmed luxury British footwear label Barker Black with his brother. Miller’s newest venture, Miller’s Oath, draws from both the made-to-measure tailoring of his great-grandfather’s business, which is referenced by a pickax on the clothes’ tags, and the British sensibilities of his Anglophile father. At the downtown haberdashery, the suits are built from English fabrics and traditional designs, and have elegant details such as moderate lapels, one-button jackets, and rounded shirt collars. These small nuances are what allow them to go from a meeting to dinner and still “feel modern,” as Miller puts it.
