If so be sure to read on, cause today I am introducing you to SunnySideCouture
The shop owner's name is Sunny....you can understand where the name comes from 😊
She is a costume designer and got into designing vintage style menswear through music. That is something you don't hear every day.
She played the saxophone since she was 14 and has always been a fan of big band music. She started playing at Lindy hop parties and that's what inspired her to make 30's and 40's style clothing.
It didn't take long before she became full time occupied with making swing trousers. What a cool name for a pair of trousers.....don't you agree?
After having made 100 trousers, she decided to get help with executing. Together with Arnhem Fashion factory she found a small factory in Romania to execute her designs.
That is not an easy task, because she is very picky on details and pre-war menswear has a lot of them. Like little watch pockets, adjustment straps, piped pockets, welt pockets,... and they all have to be perfect.
To make sure she gets the quality she wants, she sources all the materials herself. For the trousers and waistcoats they use beautiful 100% wool all made in the EU. Sometimes she gets lucky and finds the absolute top quality tweeds that she then uses for custom made orders.
Today I will show you some items I picked from her Etsy shop. But if you are interested in more you can always visit her shop or go to her website www.onthesunnyside.nl.
