Dapper Lou x Reiss
We've teamed up with British retailer Reiss London to explore their new Personal Tailoring service. The beauty of designing a suit is being apart of the creative process and knowing it's uniquely made for you. In less then 20 steps I designed the suit and picked it up a month later. Honestly, this is easily one of my favorite suits because the fabric truly feels like quality. I only wish the waiting process with a little shorter. So when shopping the service you have to plan according to the season. This suit is an investment piece so ideally you want to pick practical fabrics and have fun with the styling.
For this suit I went for a Broadwalk Empire styling with a grey double breasted 6 button jacket and trousers bottoms turned up. Paired the suit with a vintage fedora hat found in Berlin, round sunglasses, Reiss double monk strap shoes, and a white Reiss shirt with bar. The knuckle rings add character to a classic look.

This exclusive service is available at Reiss Bleecker 309-313 Bleecker Street, NY 10014.
