Go bespoke for the holidays
GOODS & SERVICES • Menswear
Checking the calendar this morning, it seems we’re about two months out from peak December holiday party crush. A query, then: might you treat yourself to a wardrobe upgrade in advance of all the merrymaking? Yes is a good answer, and a good place to answer it is J. Mueser, the tiny (yet somehow capacious?) menswear store on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village that debuted in 2008.
A bespoke sport coat is an excellent move here, starting with books of gorgeous fabrics that one of the friendly team members will walk you through, and ending with turnaround time for delivery quoted at a mere five weeks. A custom coral blazer I ordered in June was indeed ready for pickup in July. At $1,550 all-in, it'll do double-duty between summer cocktails and holiday parties. They’ll size you up as a walk-in, but why not make an appointment. –Lockhart Steele
