166 Mercer: The AoS Showroom
October 12th, 2016
It’s so good to be back in NYC!
We’ve finally settled into our beautiful new showroom, which is a multi-purpose space – to say the least.
It’s our office, where we are constantly editing stories, testing our web technology, and upgrading our online tailoring platform.
It’s our production studio, where we shoot photos and video for our upcoming content schedule, as well as our new garment releases for e-commerce.
It’s our creative meeting space, where we toss around ideas and flesh-out concepts for our editorials, profiles and “menswear 101” pieces – with hopes of representing transparency and a return to value in the menswear space.
It’s an event space where we throw occasional events for our friends, family, press and partners.
And last but not least, it’s our showroom where we display our garments and meet with our clients to discuss their fabric and tailoring needs.
Already, in our first month, having a space has been a complete game-changer for us. As a small team who’ve been working from home (and the road) for years, having a home base for our business has been an inspiration and a driving force for creativity and productivity .
As with any “mens club”, we have a full bar, of course. After all, this place is all about facilitating the creative process, as well as relationships and conversation – and nothing does that better than some good ‘ol fashioned drink.
We showcase our past and present collections in the space, but we also have our complete offering of 500+ fabrics available.
Our collection is meant to be used as inspiration – our goal is to create the perfect wardrobe for each client individually, for your unique shape, size, coloring, lifestyle, etc.
Above all else, though, this is a space for the resurgence of the gentleman.
We love tailoring not only because it’s cut to make us men look and feel great, but more importantly, because it encourages us to be great. To treat ourselves, and our peers, with respect and dignity. We only hope that our garments, and our brand, encourages a generation of “fast fashion” and “designer streetwear” consumers to slow down, appreciate the history, craftsmanship, and longevity of well-made garments, and tap into the elegance and manners of well-dressed gentlemen from a by-gone era.
As far as showroom appointments go, we are not offering in-person fittings.
Our showroom experience is to meet the team and examine our garments/fabrics in person. If you don’t live in NYC, you’re not missing out! We’re an online brand, and you’re not getting any “special treatment” by visiting us in person. We have clients all over the world, and take great pride in our online bespoke fitting process.
Address: 166 Mercer Street
Hours: Wednesday-Friday 5pm-8pm. Saturday 12pm-6pm. By Appointment Only.
Thanks, as always, for reading.
Yours in style,
