Fort Lonesome is a design-forward custom western wear and chain-stitch embroidery studio based in Austin, TX. They work collaboratively with their clients to create works that capture the stories of their wearers, in an effort to create pieces that slowly and carefully consider the symbiosis of art, narrative, and technician-ship. Their process is led by considerations of necessity and sustainability, and their designs are inspired by the natural world and its visible and invisible energies. As well as the desire to turn a head or two upon entering a room.
The Haus of Shiny Shit (HoSS) is a celebration of recent commissioned suits as well as the debut of brand new work available for pre-order—each piece informed by the desire to add their collective voice to the evolving story of contemporary western wear.
