Saint Harridan, an Oakland, California-based maker of “sleek masculine suits made to fit women and transmen,” has brought its national pop-up tour to Capitol Hill this weekend:

Friday March 28 – 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM
Saturday March 29 – 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Sunday March 30 – 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM

Imagine a store where you are the expected customer. Where the clothes are designed to fit your body and your gender. Where you will be served by people who live to see you look your best.

Now stop dreaming and come down to Saint Harridan’s Pop-Up Shop, where we aim to give you the best shopping experience you’ve ever had.

Get up! Suit up! Show up!

You’ll find the visiting shop inside Sole Repair on the southeast corner of 10th and Pike.

“I’ve completely sworn off dresses. Men’s suits were too big. Boys’ suits didn’t fit across the chest, and the customer service in men’s shops was humiliating,” founder Mary Going said about the decision to create Saint Harridan.

The company launched in 2012 with a boost from a Kickstarter campaign that resulted in $137,000 in pre-orders from 1,100 people. With its first line of suits ready for action, the company is launching its pop-up tour here in Seattle.

  1. I just purchased suits here today. I nearly cried when I tried on the sample, and it fit like a glove. This has never happened to me before in my whole life – finding a suit off the rack that fits my more masculine body. Thank you Mary Going and Saint Harridan!

  2. I love businesses like this. Someone saw a need, they met it, and as the above testimonial shows, it makes a group in our community very happy! Win win! I hope they are successful enough that they’ll be able to have small sections in local retail store so their customers can continue shopping with them, or even have an ‘off the rack’ selection.
