Last week we were contacted by the stylin’ Michael Andrews Bespoke company, a NYC-based custom tailor that recently opened a shop in Washington, DC. They had some awesome information and advice to share, and also agreed to give Capitol Romance readers a fantastic offer: Buy 1 of their Primo Tuxedos and get a shirt and bowtie for free!
All you have to do is mention Capitol Romance at your booking![Oh and you might want to start the music above before you finish reading this post …. I just couldn’t resist]
A little more about Michael Andrews Bespoke:
Michael Andrews Bespoke specializes in slim-fit suits, shirts, tuxedos, sports coats, trousers, and overcoats for men, cut to clients’ precise measurements. MAB was launched in New York City in 2006 with the vision of crafting high-end, approachable menswear with a modern flare. The shop is now known as New York City’s premier custom clothier, having been named on the “Best Of” lists by New York Magazine, Time Out New York, Bloomberg Markets, AM New York and JW Marriott Magazine. Each customer is then measured by Michael Andrews himself; fittings are done at the studio and final adjustments are made by Michael Andrews’ premier tailors.
At Michael Andrews Bespoke, clients have the opportunity to choose the inner and outer patterns as well as thread color and button type (wood, horn, or mother-of-pearl), entirely personalizing their suit. Custom shirts, ties, and artistic cuff links round out the wardrobe. Andrews is a leader in taking a boy’s club approach to retail, with an off-the-beaten-path, location and ‘by appointment’ schedule. A key focal point at both the New York City and new DC studio is a lavish eight-foot long, fully stocked bar, which makes it easy to linger before (and after) appointments.
I mean, I don’t think I will ever be in the position to purchase a tuxedo, but if I was, I would want a place with a sick studio and a full bar. Just sayin; :)
Let us know if you happen to check out Michael’s new DC shop! We hope you enjoy this special offer for my readers!
