True Story

-A veteran client, Linda K., called to introduce us to a friend and shared this anecdote:

 

"A young colleague admired the suit I was wearing and hesitantly asked the price..


When I told her she said, 'That's twice as much as mine cost. Do you think it's worth the extra money?'

 

"I asked her how long her suits usually lasted. She said, 'I might get two seasons -then they just go limp.'

"You can imagine her surprise when I told her how old my suit was---the one she admired so much."

 

Linda K. bought her classic wool black/white mini houndstooth suit from our first store in 1995.

 

Sewing Techniques

 

Our clothes are entirely patterned, cut, and sewn in New York City

 

Armholes are finished with the top half stitched by hand to ensure mobility and comfort.

 

Our sewing process is not highly-automated or machine-driven; each garment is made primarily by one tailor with the help of a hand-finisher. This holistic approach allows the tailor to insure quality at every step. 

 

All garments are hand-pressed to allow the subtle shaping of an experienced tailor’s hand.
