I'm Nick Stryker. I make clothing, accessories, performance wear, intimates, props, and home furnishings in my design studio in Brooklyn. Unfortunately I do not yet have an online store. This is because more often than not my pieces are made to order and custom-fit. For this reason I rarely keep back stock of any items. This ensures each hand-crafted piece is one of a kind. I do travel for fittings, but the work itself is done in-studio.
My aesthetic is inspired by the darkness of human desire, as if the Fruedian id were an antihero. I design more unisex pieces, though my models tend to be male, and my color palette is ever-changing. My primary focus, and most noteworthy feature of my work, is fit and feel. My tailoring evokes a certain energy within the wearer. As donning a "power suit" may change the way one may feel about themselves in the world around them, so does wearing a pair of my fitted non-stretch jeans, my holster vest, or even just a pair of glovelettes. It is no question that the clothing, in this instance, makes the man or woman. I am, however, the the man that makes the clothes.
