For most people who are not in the fashion business, the term Look Book can be pretty unfamiliar. Simply put it is a catalog of images illustrating the current styles for that season and we use them regularly in electronic form so that we can produce personalized collections for each client.

I personally select pieces that take into account replacing his older staple pieces, introduce fresh new patterns an... Read More
It’s not surprising that everyone identifies us with great fitting business attire.
Consequently, casual wear has taken a back seat for most of our clients. They rarely realize that we carry a comprehensive casual-wear selection, featuring designer jeans and casual pants, custom leather jackets and more.

Made to measure or ready to wear clothing does not offer the same level of expert fit and attention to detail as having a custom suit or bespoke item of clothing made for your specific measurements.
There are key elements that set a bespoke or custom suit apart from made to measure or ready to wear garments. Here’s what to ask and look for:Fused Fronts Eighty per cent of ready to wear suits, jackets, topcoats, overcoats and outerwear garments are fused, meaning that the body of the garment (between the front fabric and the interior lining) is constructed using a membrane that is heat bonded to the actual fabric to give it body and shaping. Eventually over time, this membrane separates from the fabric during the dry c... Read More
First impressions can be the difference in securing gainful employment. But for many low-income men, affording the necessary clothing to project a professional business image is out of reach.

Misconceptions about custom clothing are gaining traction, and there’s a reason: retailers want their customers to believe they’re getting more than they bargained for.
The truth is that real custom clothing far exceeds lookalikes in quality, style and most importantly, value. A custom-made suit that can cost as little as $1,200 will outlast its off-the-rack or made-to-measure counterpart by a factor of three and can even be refreshed after a few years the same way a good pair of shoes are fitted with new soles.
Better department stores now push “custom,” “made-to-order” and “made-to-mea... Read More
The Connor Palace is a theater located at 1615 Euclid Avenue in Downtown Cleveland, Ohio, part of Playhouse Square. The theater opened in 1922, as Keith's Palace Theatre after B. F. Keith, founder of the Keith-Albee chain of vaudeville and movie theaters. It was designed by the Chicago architectural firm of Rapp and Rapp in the French Renaissance style, and originally housed live two-a-day vaudeville shows. The $2 million theater opened in the Keith Building on November 6, 1922, seating 3,100. The interior featured Carrara marble and 154 crystal chandeliers, and the main lobby, dubbed the "Great Hall," was decorated with over 30 paintings.
The advent of the motion-picture age led to the gradual replacement of the vaudeville acts with movies, although vaudeville maintained a pr... Read More
