Here and Now: We’ve Reinvented Men’s
The New Recruits
Yves Saint Laurent has their first men’s boutique in the United States, and it happens to be on the Third Floor of our utterly transformed store. There’s more of what’s new: Dries Van Noten’s first U.S. shop, a very special Thom Browne shop, Lanvin’s first American men’s shop. You’ll also find Billy Reid’s Heirloom collection, which began as a bespoke service in Reid’s own shops and now constitutes a full line of luxurious tailored clothing, sweaters, dress shirts and ties. It’s all made in the United States by the elite of American tailors and artisans.

From the Ground Up
The Shoe Library on the First Floor doubles the size of our previous department and triples the offerings. New shoe additions include Tod’s, Giorgio Armani, Alexander McQueen, Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, Rick Owens, Yves Saint Laurent, Florsheim by Duckie Brown, Louis Leeman, Maison Martin Margiela and Bespoke Hadleigh’s. We think you’ll agree it is the ultimate men’s footwear experience. The vast new Shoe Library has enabled us to add the legendary Italian shoemaker Fratelli Rossetti, a close-knit family business. For decades they have epitomized style and quality for the best-dressed Italian gentleman.

Inventors & Perfecters
Who invented the modern raincoat? Back in 1824, Charles Macintosh patented his revolutionary rubberized fabric and created a new era in foul weather gear. Today the Mac is still the ultimate in handmade raincoats, but it features high-tech improvements and a sleek modernist silhouette. Kirk Miller of Miller’s Oath started at Seize sur Vingt and Paul Stuart before taking a turn as Thom Browne’s right hand and founding the elite shoe brand Barker Black. This up-to-date but truly bespoke tailoring business offers a unique and modern silhouette, combining the best of Savile Row and Madison Avenue tradition.

Leather and Luxury
Spain is famed for its leathers, and of all its luxury leather houses, Loewe stands alone. From jackets to bags, attachés and small leather goods, including the most beautiful iPod and iPad cases, this Madrid operation dating to 1846 and a long favorite of Spain’s elites, offers the ultimate in quality materials and workmanship.
