A new suit will not magically ascend you up the corporate ladder.
But it certainly can’t hurt — especially where holiday parties and year-end-reviews are concerned.
Luckily, a deluge of new NYC men’s shops have swung open their doors in recent weeks.
Among them: two new bespoke suiting parlors, the first local brick-and-mortar from an online giant, and American-made goods by way of Upstate New York.
Safe to say 2018 is looking mighty handsome.

This is mic drop equivalent to the New York suiting game. The internationally recognized British menswear label has descended upon Soho. The best of bespoke, made-to-measure and ready-to-wear all live in this dap boutique with clubhouse appeal. The private cutting room for bespoke appointments is best to be booked on the last week of each month. But their outerwear for the winter months is not to be overlooked. To boot, the shop carries Edward Green and Crockett & Jones footwear and Globetrotter luggage. Get your well-rounded handsome in one fine place.

From time to time we’ll fret when we see a new menswear shop pop up in the city. The game is saturated. But you can feel in your guts that Upstate Stock is a permanent installation. This shop is unimpeachable. Made in America goods at accessible prices is something no one is going to argue with. Beyond the apparel, you’ll be surrounded with such delights as wool beanies, fingerless gloves, apothecary, candles and glassware. Plus, they have a top-notch coffee bar on site that wafts intoxicating roast waves down the block.
