Thank you to everyone who stopped in for our first fall trunk show! It was great to see familiar faces again (or as much as we could with masks on). 😊

Judging by the response to our fall offerings we have the looks that you want for the new season!

Thank you to our vendors who made the trip, Casa’s for the great food and drink, Executive Barbershop for the straight razor shaves , and Alicia Pyle for her wonderful music. A special shout out to Ultra Motorsports for bringing some beautiful cars and for those of you who brought your own special rides to share with everyone.

Mark Friday October 23 and Saturday October 24 on your calendars as our next fall event will be happening then.

Thanks again,

Your Friends at Christopher James

Janus Motorcycles Featured at Christopher James Menswear


Janus_Motor_Mastead3 Janus Motorcycles will be featuring their bikes at the Christopher James Menswear Trunk Show on March 17, 2016 from 3-8p.m. Both motorcycle novices and enthusiasts are encouraged to drop in to test drive the bikes and ask questions.

Channeling a vintage aesthetic with modern engineering, Goshen, Indiana’s new startup, Janus Motorcycles, is proud to introduce their American-made, regionally sourced motorcycles to the national marketplace.

With a mixed background in architecture and mechanics, the co-owners, Richard Worsham and Devin Biek, saw a need for a scalable, yet fast bike that urban dwellers could afford. With deep roots in Elkhart County, Janus Motorcycles created a network of the area’s rich source of independent manufactures that ultimately spawned their two handmade bikes – the Halcyon 250 and Phoenix 250.

“Devin has lived and worked in Elkhart County his whole life, but I moved here after realizing the passionate tradition of quality manufacturing this area provides,” Janus Motorcycles Co-founder Richard Worsham said. “By keeping our business regionally built, we have created a model that is much to the liking of the farm-to-table trend; keeping prices low without sacrificing the high-end quality.”

Originating the name from the Roman god of the past and future, the motorcycles hail the highest level of design, influenced by the ‘20s Norton Motorcycle and the ‘60s café racers, yet features the modern mechanics of speed and safety. Both products are custom made for every order and sport handmade leather saddle seats, powerful 250cc single-cylinder engines and an anti-dive front suspension, developed by the Janus team.

“We are not industry insiders; we are a small company handcrafting small bikes,” Worsham said. “With my background in architecture and Devin’s in mechanics, we produce a product that channels function and beauty in equal parts. Our goal is to produce bikes that are engineered to connect the rider with speed and agility that will make riding fun again.”

Janus Motorcycles are designed and built to inspire joy in each owner. From their small production shop in northern Indiana, Janus Motorcycles bring together the the best of Midwestern handmade craftsmanship and modern manufacturing. Time-tested style makes each Janus an eye-catching machine, while a modern, lightweight design provides a thrilling riding experience that is altogether unique in American motorcycles. In a marketplace of over-powered, heavyweight machines, their Phoenix and Halcyon models inspire motorcyclists new and old that appreciate classic style, simplicity, and freedom.

Oh What A Night…

On behalf of all of us at Christopher James we want to thank you for attending our annual Fall Trunk Show last Thursday night. It was a wonderful party and in addition to the new fall fashions we were treated to some great food and music and saw some of the best cars in Fort Wayne! And, most importantly, we were able to raise some money for Camp Whatcha Wanna Do!

It was so busy that we feared that some friends didn’t get the attention they deserved and we also realize that not everyone  was able to make it in so we are EXTENDING the special trunk show pricing on Coppley, Scabal, Allen Edmonds, and Robert Talbott through this Saturday.

Thanks again for your great support and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Here’s an old favorite to listen to…
