The name Seize sur Vingt is a jokey reference to the French equivalent of a B-minus in school—16 out of 20—but the shirting from this Manhattan clothier is anything but cut-rate. Former Wall Streeter James Jurney and his wife, Gwen, started selling made-to-measure shirts from a stylish Nolita boutique back in 1998, and the duo have since added off-the-rack shirts and custom suiting. From vivid plaids to elegant solids, SSV uses Egyptian cotton—occasionally blended with silk, cashmere or linen—that is woven at family-run workshops and mills in Italy, Switzerland, Portugal and Spain. The results? Dress shirts and knits that are equally popular among downtown creative types as they are among Jurney’s former colleagues in the upper echelons of finance.
