Tess Coburn and Gary Temple are independent clothing designers who make exceptional elegant womens coats, jackets and skirts. Tess first started designing clothing when she was living in China and working as an English teacher.

Later she apprenticed with a master pattern engineer who taught her old world design techniques. Gary travels the globe sourcing the best silk, wool, cashmere and bamboo fabrics for their line. One of their signature pieces is the Shazer, a short blazer style jacket that serves as a shirt and blazer in one piece.

Their coats are intended to accommodate the busy fashion forward woman. They design with the goal of making clothes practical for daily wear and stylish enough to complete any outfit. All of their apparel is designed and handmade in America.
