Any clothes horse worth his club-collared salt knows that the best bespoke tailors hail from storied locales: Like Savile Row. And Park Avenue. And Detroit.

Detroit? Yeah buddy, Detroit.

Introducing Sebastien Grey, a stately den of bespoke duds run by a Detroit native whose sobriquet is “8 Mile,” just now open in NY and taking clients.

Grey’s been tailoring big name clients for years (they’re HQ’d in Chicago, where they outfitted Mike Tyson), and they’ll get you kitted out in head-to-toe, handmade bespoke:

    • Suits: Grey offers thousands of fabrics from top-notch mills like Loro Piana, and they’ll customize everything from shoulder style to the angle of your buttonholes. Bonus: cheeky details like hidden iPhone pockets and flashy breast pocket linings that can be pulled out as an impromptu pocket square.

    • Shirts: Grey’s expert consultants help find the fit and collar styles that look best on you, then you’ll choose fabric and extra-luxe touches like getting your signature embroidered on your French cuffs.

    • Outerwear: Grey also does overcoats in fabrics with up to 100% cashmere, including optional twists like removable hoods and toasty button-in quilted linings.

    Better book an appointment quick – before the line stretches a full 8 Miles.
