About State and Liberty

We are State & Liberty, a technical menswear company focused on providing in-shape males with athletic fit dress clothing. Our points of difference focus on providing our guests with the following:

  • Athletic Fit Dress Clothing: Our dress clothes are off-the-rack (no tailoring needed) and have more room in the upper body - chest, shoulders, and arms - with a very tapered waist (with fabric darts in the back to pull in the fabric)
  • Performance Stretch Fabrics & Low Maintenance: Our fabric for all of our dress clothing is moisture wicking, wrinkle-free, machine washable, and extremely stretchy.

Our vision is to create transformational experiences for guests in-store, from providing incredible dress clothing to building and maintaining lifetime relationships with our guests. Culture is very important to who we are - our store features a complimentary bar for customers, TV and lounge area, and we frequently host happy hours with our customers and professional athletes.
