New York bespoke tailor Michael Andrews returns home to Atlanta to provide suiting for men and women alike
Since its inception a little over a decade ago, Michael Andrews Bespoke has expanded beyond men’s suits to include custom denim, outerwear, and most recently, womenswear. Now, the Atlanta native is bringing his bespoke tailoring back home with regular trunks hows.
Last weekend, Atlanta United arrived at Mercedes-Benz stadium for the home opener looking particularly dapper in new custom suits. That’s thanks to bespoke outfitter Knot Standard, which announced its partnership with the team for pre-game and travel attire—and its new showroom in Atlanta, set to open at the Buckhead Exchange this May.
It’s no secret Atlanta’s darling design duo Sid and Ann Mashburn have plans to run the world’s go-to lifestyle brand. And this October, coinciding with the tenth anniversary of Sid’s eponymous menswear store, they’re diving in with their first concept shop alongside their flagships at Westside Provisions District.
Three locally-made items every Atlanta man needs, featuring accessories from Whipping Post, Res Ipsa, and W. Kleinberg.
Alton Lane, Atlanta’s newest high-end men’s store, is an interesting mix of seeming opposites: traditional Savile Row-style tailoring paired with high-tech suit fittings; appointment-based service with moderate prices; an uncluttered, custom-order-only showroom that suggests seriousness with a private room in the back for playing poker or watching football.
Garrett Hilgendorf's second collection is out now, with slim but sturdy trousers, leather and canvas accessories, and six shirting silhouettes—including Western, popover, and round collar—all made from Japanese-woven fabrics.
It’s a classic story of ties that bind—except this one actually starts with ties. Kirk Stafford, who had a small tie company called Mast-McBride, walked into Billy Reid in September 2012. Thomas Wages, a partner at an advertising company, was inside talking to the manager over a bourbon drink. He owned a tie that was too skinny, and he wanted it made into a bow tie. The manager looked from Wages to Stafford; it was kismet. One conversation led to another, and the two discovered they wanted to open the same type of men’s boutique, right down to the last handcrafted leather detail.
