Welcome to David Wood Clothiers & Tailor Shop

Portland, Maine.


We are excited to show you our newly renovated space all built by local tradesman and design team. Truly Portland Style. Renovations are only part of our NEW FIT.

We have recently completed a major fit-out of our store to make the shopping experience more enjoyable. We are also taking this opportunity to announce a few enhancements to our line up of goods and services. What we are calling NEW FIT. 


Tailor Shop. For men and women. 

Our Tailor Shop is now in full view, emphasizing our commitment to expanded tailoring services. Besides a perfect fit of clothing purchased here, we offer tailoring for clothing purchased elsewhere, both men’s and women’s.



Our custom department is a more private experience. We will also offer Internet access, espresso, cappuccino, and our House Wine at the appropriate time of day. 


Exclusive Products. 

From domestic resources like Hertling Trouser and New England Shirtmakers. We also are building a relationship with several artisan manufacturers in Italy. Stay tuned.


“1978” Suits and Blazers. 

Our most affordable custom suit, blazer and trouser. Perfect fit and styled just for you.


Custom Sweaters and Knits. 

Tired of sweaters that don’t fit or lack of selection in your size? We now have the solution. Sweaters and knits made to order in a variety of yarns and styles. Custom designed corporate polo shirts anyone?




The close relationships we have made with many of our vendors is important to the style and quality we stand for. Read more.

Custom Clothing. Self Assured.


Custom Clothing; whether it be suits, jackets, trousers or shirts, is the most direct line to cloths that fit and are comfortable and stylish. At David Wood, our custom clothing is just a bit more than ready-made and delivery in a jiffy. Usually three weeks. Self assured.


D.W. Philosophy


At David Wood, we believe that fashion and style are very different. Fashion is dictated. Style is exclusively yours. And while fashion is fleeting, style has passed the test of time.

We are a true brick and mortar establishment, outfitting men with style since 1978. Our staff is knowledgeable and passionate about assisting in the creation of your style.

Since personal attention and fit is such an important part of our business, we have moved slowly towards a point and click option to order any of our products. But alas, somewhat reluctantly, we offer this option. Click HERE to view our SHOP page. We also welcome your phone or e-mail inquiries about our goods and services, or even our recommendations for a good meal or  place to stay while visiting Portland. 

See you soon,
