If you get excited about menswear tailoring and you live in Brooklyn—a description that applies to a surprisingly large number of people—then you probably know Martin Greenfield. He's been making clothes in Bushwick since 1947, starting as a floor boy at a factory and ultimately buying out the company in the late '70s. Recently, he's worked with Band of Outsiders and Rag & Bone, and starting soon, he'll be fitting suits and jackets for all the bearded, tattooed visitors at the Ace Hotel.
The Martin Greenfield pop-up shop launches Friday, February 10th and runs through Sunday, February 12th, 10am to 6pm. Greenfield and his tailors will offer a wide range of fabric and lining options and use exclusive Ace Hotel New York x Martin Greenfield fasteners on everything they make—a list of garments that includes tuxedos, if you're feeling especially flashy. Fittings are appointment-only, so if you're interested, book here.
