What a nightmare. I ask myself: Do I go home and change? Should I keep a spare shirt at the office? Is it going to get cold? Am I underdressed? Overdressed? (We’re kidding; we don’t think there’s such a thing as being overdressed.)
After-work drinks and early dinners prompt some pretty weird behavior. My personal low point was when I completely changed in a cab on my way from Midtown to the Upper West Side to meet my

Knowing the ins and outs of a potential supplier's production and manufacturing processes is the first step. We are proud to work with companies such as Schoeller, Leichtfried, Albini, and Tollegno, who have all been around for over one hundred years. We combine these time-tested and historically family-run companies with innovative and booming brands like
But what good are responsible practices and historic leadership if they’re not paired with excellent design and style? Our lead tailor has built a reputation as a menswear creative, a pattern cutter, and a sartorialist. He’s designed for Thierry Mugler, Lemaire, Kenzo, and Givenchy, to name but a few, and we’re proud to have him on our team, too.

Our signature may be feel-good fabric with special properties, but our passion is the rebounding happiness and self-assurance our clothes bring to those who wear them.
We design clothes for life. For a lot of us, 9 hours of every day take place at work, where we need to be ‘professional’—but that’s not all life is. Life can also be buying a new shirt and pants 20 minutes before meeting your partner’s intimidating uncle, changing in the back seat of a cab, and arriving uncomfortably dressed, unsure about your new purchase, and far from comfortable. We want more for you than that. We want you comfortable all day long, and we want those kinds of transitions to go by seamlessly.
Stay tuned to learn more about who we work with, and about the value in working both with time-honored traditional families and with innovative startups that are thinking about the way we’ll be wearing clothes 20 years down the line.
