Viennese bespoke has hit the mainstream press. Thanks to an alert Styleforum reader, I came across this New York Times article on bespoke tailor Knize, shoemaker Scheer and milliner Mühlbauer. In 2005, I began writing about Knize and have updated with additional posts (see below).
I also recently visited Jon Green’s bespoke shop on the Upper East Side in NYC and looked at some of the suits and jackets he’s made for clients. Mr. Green was gracious enough to take me through the studio and workshop, walking through the tailoring details and finished garments. He now has a tailor on the premise, who can modify the key elements like shoulder and chest construction. Very nice looking jackets in the classic Anglo-American silhouette.
