Last year I recall someone mentioning Ciccarelli Custom Tailors.

I originally thought it might be Martin Greenfield, but apparently it's not.

I think they were originally, at least that is the impression I had from looking at the suits for sale at Bergdorf in 04.

When Thom Browne had his trunk show at Neiman Marcus, the Neiman Marcus people told me it was that Italian-esque factory. That trunk show actually had a real live Thom Browne there.

Thanks. Based on your lead, I poked around some more and that seems to be the sort-of-slightly-informed consensus view. I am not sure whether anyone who initially made the claim actually knew or whether the statement was just an inference based on snippets of information and the fact that Ciccarelli is the only factory/CMT shop in Liong Island City. I am not suggesting it is wrong - in fact, I think it is likely correct - but I wonder if anyone has more solid information. I have only seen a Thom Browne suit in person once or twice and that was on a person, not in a shop, so I couldn't inspect it for quality. I am not sure the quality even matters as the overall impression is that the wearer is wearing a Thom Browne suit - any other impression being conveyed, even the fit, was overwhelmed by the "designerness" and seemed besides the point. Nonetheless, I can at least tell my friend that Cicarelli is capable of making a good machine made suit and that Thom Browne likely contracts for the high end of their capability.

I think if you say "Italian owned tailor in Long Island City," there is no other but Ciccarelli.

I hope he was on a leash and not in a cage, the poor thing.

What do you want from me? I used the search function to try to find an answer first and found only a partial answer. Did you want me to start a NEW THOM BROWNE THREAD? I would have if there was a cool Thom Browne icon.

Since this seems like a good place to ask semi Thom Browne related quesitions, does anyone know when the Black fleece line is going to be in BB stores?

I read that the print compaign starts mid month this month so I would assume mid September but I havent seen any suggestion beyond "fall". I am hoping we have one of the initial 20 stores carrying the line here in the big D but I kinda doubt it.

Get Smart-Duncan Quinn uses Greenfield.

I have a sportcoat on order that will look slightly Thom Browne-ish except for it won't be short and the sleeves will be the right length.

For those of you in NY and slightly interested (I think I brought this up somewhere before):
Now on the second floor at BG they have the Thom Browne "Sartorial" room which freatures the basic grey, navy, black, pinstripe and one windowpane suit which is offered in a R and a L size.
Also, Monday on the 1st floor they are opening the section for Thom Browne (boxed)shirting and ties (not sure where it is at...maybe back by Polo?).
