Amber Doyle

Amber Doyle is a New York City based tailor and designer who specializes in creating custom suiting and clothing for men and women. Doyle’s high attention to detail and superior craftsmanship imbue her designs with the timelessness of classic tailoring combined with an ever present dash of high glamour and rebellion. 

Doyle began her sartorial life at the age of 3 in Chicago when her mother first taught her to sew. She spent her young adult life honing the craft as her passion for design and tailored garments grew; eventually leading her to study at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. 

Soon after graduating she began a design collaboration with then-partner Jake Mueser, creating the company Doyle+Mueser. In 2009 the pair opened their first bespoke clothing boutique, Against Nature, in Manhattan's Lower East Side along with designers Ryan Matthew and Simon Jacobs. After the success of Against Nature, the following year she and Mueser opened the classically-styled tailor shop Doyle+Mueser, where they focused on fully bespoke suits, shirts and accessories.

Doyle now designs handcraft custom clothing independently. Her design inspiration is rooted in classic items that have stood the test of time and are reimagined with a modern edge. The pieces reference styles ranging from Art Nouveau, Victorian and Savile Row traditions to Punk Rock and Old Hollywood, always emphasizing heightened glamour and wit.

Doyle’s work has been featured in The New York Times, Vogue, Interview, FLATT and Harper’s Bazaar. She has worked closely with costume designers for films such as The Longest Week, Buttercup Bill, The Wannabe and Time Out of Mind and is a favorite of musicians, designing looks for the red carpet as well as stage costumes.
