If you haven't guessed by now, I am a huge fan of The Groom. Huge. I love a good groom! There is something so sexy about a man making a commitment. The only thing sexier is one that does it with an undeniable sense of style. Which is why I am such a proponent of men owning their own tuxedo or suit. It is all a part, as I like to call it, of...
The Art of Being a Gentleman.
And make no mistake about it, this is an art. It's about courtship. Love Letters. Planning dates, opening doors, orchestrating the perfect proposal and then standing side by side as you plan a wedding with your partner and equal.
I believe the Gentlemanly Arts are coming back into "fashion" - All puns intended as I introduce you to the stylings of Astor & Black. As shared with me so beautifully by Adrianne Kapela:
Astor & Black is a true custom clothier. We are intensely focused on delivering your natural fit through our comprehensive 28-Point Fit Profile and fitting process that’s done at your home or office with your Professional Clothier. Our Master Tailors then review each set of new customer measurements and create your unique customer template, which is centrally stored and adjusted for all future orders. Each suit is hand cut, then sewn together according to our strict quality standards and delivered to you in person by your Professional Clothier.
We have many different custom clothing styles to choose from in suits, jackets, pants, shirts, overcoats, and even shorts. We carry the latest seasonal collections from the finest mills in the world, including Scabal, Zegna, Loro Piana, Dormeuil, and many more. Your ability to personalize the style of your garment is limited only by your imagination and budget. Our Professional Clothiers will guide you through the entire creation process until you arrive at your style and your price, which can range from $650 to $18,000 depending on your fabric selection.
Let us introduce you to the pleasure of a well-made, personalized garment that’s made exclusively for you from the finest fabrics in the world. It is a transformative experience as well as an affordable luxury that you can enjoy every day.
