Day-to-Night Tailoring

October 29th, 2015

Life moves fast.

Gentlemen today don’t have the time to go home and change out of their “work clothes” before heading out for the evening.

That’s why so many well-dressed city slickers carry manbags with them throughout the day. In addition to holding a laptop, book to read on the subway, water bottle, etc, it’s also a great place to keep a casual layer for the evening and stash your necktie and cufflinks once you leave the office.

“The gentleman on the move” was one of the inspirations for our first collection. The goal was to create versatile garments that our clients could use for work and play.

To illustrate this point, downtown NYC’s very own Umi Mucktar-Barnes, brother of Kai Mucktar-Barnes, takes our unstructured tailoring from day to night.
