Men’s Spotlight: Made-to-Measure
There is no substitute for clothes made expressly for you: your measurements, your preferred details, your ideal fabric. Yes, the Men’s Made-to-Measure Event begins Thursday, and that’s good news for those who the value the refined things in life (and for partisans of very daring tweed).
Sartorial mavens, this is your time—representatives from the world’s finest labels will be throughout the store to offer counsel, assist you with fabrics and indulge your imagination. It’s a pleasure, especially since almost all made-to-measure fees* are waived. Suits, shirts, shoes (Bontoni), cufflinks (Robin Rotenier), traditional shaves (Acqua di Parma), nothing is beyond your grasp.
You require the definitive power suit? Brioni will be here, as will Tom Ford, Ralph Lauren Black Label and Zegna, among others, (you can see a complete schedule when you RSVP on Facebook). New York’s leading downtown tailor, Miller’s Oath, will be in residence Saturday with Kirk Miller’s unrivalled collection of tweeds and masterful modern silhouette.
Jean-Claude Colban, legendary president of Charvet, can help those who require shirts without equal. The Made-to-Measure Event is truly all things to all people. Are you a man who enjoys a bold windowpane suit that announces itself at once? Are you more discreet, content with a deep gray suit with peaked lapels? Let’s agree that all blue suits are made equal, touch a Kiton jacket and learn why. You may not be ready to step into the deep end with an emerald velvet smoking jacket (though it is nice to dream), but consider getting a shirt made: the minimum order is only one, and you will treasure it. So make your way to the Men’s Store, to meet the experts and hear favorite band, The Blue Vipers of Brooklyn. The peace of mind that comes with a flawless clothing is worth the price. That’s why people who’ve enjoyed made-to-measure inevitably come back for more.
