Martin bills himself as "suitmaker to presidents." As far as I am concerned, he is the first gentleman and maestro of the tailored clothing business. When he came over to USA from Europe and started out at GGG he served President Eisenhower. Eventually, he bought the company and changed the name to Martin Greenfield Clothiers. His factory in Brooklyn is one of the few mens clothing factories left in NYC. I believe that it is the largest, and the remaining handful are more like workshops than factories. I believe that he has personally served a number of presidents including Clinton. He was supposed to fit President Bush, but he broke his ankle on one of Bush's last visits. The Clinton connection began at Brooks Brothers when Clinton was going to order tails for his first inaugural. The Washington Brooks store called in Mr. Greenfield. (He makes Brooks's top of the line suits, Golden Fleece, as well as its top of the line MTM.) Mr. Greenfield made some of Clinton's suits during his presidency. BTW, Greenfield ceased making the Donna Karan suits a few years ago. I believe that the Karan suit is now made in Italy. I believe that one factor was that due to US tariffs, it costs less to import a finished suit from Italy than to import the cloth into the USA and to make it here.
