We are very excited for you to meet Mr. Mark Pomerantz, a menswear designer who represents the latest addition to our collection of bespoke offerings. His line of suits and coats is crafted from gorgeous fabrics. What we really love about Mr. Pomerantz’ work is the incredible amount of attention he focuses on embellishments and construction details. You would be hard pressed to find such specific work elsewhere.
Foster & Son’s Jermyn Street workshop in London stands as a testament to classic, understated craftsmanship. As they note on their brochure, “The tools of our craft are very simple. An awl, flax thread, beautifully naturally tanned leather, a hammer, pliers, sharp knives, beeswax, punches, and marking tools.”
Next week, St. Crispin’s visits Wingtip for a three-day trunk show. We adore these shoes, and fell that they represent an investment-caliber value, even at their steep price tag. But we know some readers may get light-headed over the thought of parting with $1700 for a pair of shoes. So, here we embody the “Skeptical Shopper,” and volley the hard questions to our Bespoke Advisors Michael Alzona and Bruce Zuckerman:
One of the world’s premier fabric mills returns to Bespoke Thursday for their fall trunk show. Dormeuil has existed at the top of the fabric game since 1846, and are revered the world over, from the traditional tailors of Savile Row to the contemporary creatives of Napoli. When you take a fabric from one of Dormeuil’s many books, and use the yards to create an American-made Wingtip suit, you have one of the finest custom offerings available anywhere in the market.
Details to follow.
