The Man Behind the Suit

Martin Greenfield is well-known in menswear circles for turning out exacting, handmade garments for labels like Band of Outsiders and Rag & Bone from his Brooklyn factory. We have ourselves sought the man’s tailoring expertise; and today The New York Times shows how his master-craftsmanship was forged in the most dire of circumstances. The piece traces Greenfield’s path from the tragedies of World War II Europe to the halls of the White House. Plus, what’s a feel-good story without a little bro hug? In this case, from Steve Buscemi, who says “he’s never looked so good” as in the Greenfield-made period costumes he wears on Boardwalk Empire. Can’t say we disagree.

Gilt MAN’s own Tyler Thoreson recently paid a visit to the storied factory to get the full Greenfield suit treatment, from the man himself.
