Franco Ercole Bespoke - Official Affiliate Thread

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello Style Forum,

 

We would like to formally introduce ourselves to the Style Forum community.  We had the good fortune to meet many of you at the trunk show in NYC last year and would like the opportunity to get to know many more of you in the future. 

 

At Franco Ercole Bespoke, we make bespoke suits and shirts in our Brooklyn store at 7415 13th Ave.  For those in the Manhattan area, we have a store on 53rd and Madison in New York City (515 Madison, 3rd floor) for consultations and fittings by appointment as well.  

 

As for a little history, Ercole moved to Brooklyn from Italy in his 20s and started his own bespoke shop on 13th avenue, Ercole's Creative Fashions, in the late 70s.  While the sign remains the same on the Brooklyn store, the addition of his son Frank to the business as well as the Manhattan outpost brought about the name "Franco Ercole Bespoke" which those of you that know us are more familiar with. 

 

While bespoke suiting has been the focus of the company since day one, several years ago we began offering a line of made in-house bespoke shirting as well, which we take great pride in.  We also are pleased to offer custom made ties, belts and watch bands to those who are interested, but rather than producing these in house, we have them made by other local craftsmen that we trust to deliver a high quality product. 

 

While our bespoke production is the main focus of our shop, we offer made to measure suits and shirts to help achieve a lower price point and faster turnaround time when desired. 

 

We are available day or night via email to answer any questions you may have and we invite you to visit our website if you are interested in getting in touch at www.francoercole.com.  If you would prefer to swing by the shop, we're open in Brooklyn during the week from 9AM to 6PM and 9AM to 5PM on Saturdays. 

 

Thank you and we're looking forward to getting to know you all better,

 

The Ercole's Team

Welcome to SF. We should probably merge this thread with this one:

What is your house style, or what styles can be achieved via bespoke or your MTM service?

I plan to visit NY later this year, and was looking for local MTM options. I don't travel so often that bespoke is a realistic option for me at the moment, but i would like a well fitting suit (or sports coat & odd trousers) for the time being...
