brooklyn tailors.

12 Sep 2011

So my friend Ryan is getting married next March in New Orleans, to his longtime partner Caroline.  He’s decided to go bespoke for the occasion and so this past weekend, we went to Brooklyn Tailors over on Grand Street in Williamsburg to check out their suits.   It’s a great little shop, run by a husband and wife team, with ready to wear shirts on one side and a long counter on the other side with fabric swatches and the like.  About 45 minutes after we walked in for Ryan’s appointment, a fabric had been chosen, a deposit put down, and plans made for Ryan to return for his first fitting.  While the ins and outs were being discussed, I wandered around the shop and snapped a few photos.  The store was full of great mid-afternoon light, and the relative sparseness of the space made for lovely photographing. 

We celebrated afterwards with glasses of Balvenie PortWood 21 year old single malt at Walter Foods.  A most genteel afternoon.
