When something is created especially for me, it makes my heart happy. In Oklahoma City, the customizable and bespoke options are limitless. If you can imagine it, you can probably have it tailor-made in Oklahoma City. We’re talking clothing, boots and even home furnishings and outdoor living accoutrements! 

When you think of personalized apparel, your first thought might not be running shoes. While Red Coyote Running and Fitness doesn’t actually manufacture your perfect running shoe, its terrific in-store team will analyze your feet, gait and foot strike in order to offer you the precisely perfect shoe for you and your needs. For every year it’s been in business, Competitor Magazine has ranked Red Coyote as one of the top 50 running stores in the United States, and it was named Best Running Store in the U.S. in 2015. They also offer a wide array of training programs and groups, from 5K to marathon, a terrific way to socialize while working on your fitness.

Think you can only find a beautifully tailored, handmade suit on London’s Saville Row or perhaps at a snazzy New York atelier? Mr. Ooley's makes beautiful custom men’s suits, trousers, sport coats and dress shirts at its location in Penn Square Mall. It’s been a classic OKC institution since its founding in the 1960s.

Looking for the perfect lid? Custom hattery Wohali is a relatively new shop in Oklahoma City’s Western Avenue District, offering a true made-to-order experience and beautiful hats. Perhaps the OG of custom headwear is Shorty’s Caboy Hattery in Stockyard City. Known for handcrafted stitching, fun designs/colors and impressive detail, Shorty’s hats are unique and of incredibly high quality. Lucchese Bootmaker and Little Joe’s Boots both offer custom boots, crafted to meet your style - and lifestyle – needs.

Made to measure isn’t just for apparel. Transform your home into whatever you imagine it to be with a little help from The Wood Garden, also in the Western Avenue District. Here you’ll find gorgeous custom tables and other furnishings, plus incredible linens. Do you dream of one-of-a-kind needlepoint throw pillows? Su Casa, in the Paseo Arts District, will teach you to stitch and help you choose the perfect canvases to make your heirloom-quality needlepoint dreams come true. Maybe you’ve got a sofa that isn’t wowing you like it used to. The folks at Thready or Knot would love nothing more than to help you reimagine and reupholster (almost) anything. What a great way to upcycle!
