    From GQ.com:

    Kirk Miller"”who up until January had partnered with brother Derrick on the skull-and-crossboned shoe label/dandyish haberdashery Barker Black Ltd."”has just opened a not-to-be-missed New York store of his own. Miller's Oath, a 750-square-foot space on a tree-lined block of Greenwich Street, offers full bespoke and made-to-measure services and is "loosely based on our great-grandfather's store in Groton, South Dakota," says Miller, who cut his teeth working with Thom Browne and Paul Stuart. The store carries a collection of ready-to-wear shirts and accessories along with a line of handmade and fully customizable suits, shirts, tuxedos, trousers, and topcoats"”or, according to the man himself, "the full range of what a well-dressed gentleman should have in his wardrobe."

    Open by appointment: 510 Greenwich Street, New York, NY; 212.219.9965. Suits starting at $2,700; shirts starting at $275.

    The collars on those shirts look quite nice, but they're pretty pricey.

    In all seriousness, what is different about Miller's Oath versus the 8 million other haberdasheries cropping up?

    That's a neat looking jacket.

    The fact that this is happening at all is a good enough reason, yes? We are, after all, on Style Forvm.

    There is very little.


    Basically you have a VERY knowledgeable individual who is willing to be a style/clothing guide to another person, for a fee.

    Wait what? I thought this was a comic book board!! DAMNIT! I don't disagree that having a plethora of options out there for menswear is an embarrassment of riches for us all. However, I just didn't see offhand what MO was doing specifically that was different from what places like Sid Mashburn, Epaulet, etc. have been doing for some time now.

    So you'd argue what we're seeing is actually an increase in personal haberdashery services to young professional men, where the menswear sold is more of an incident to the services offered?

    Nothing very new or interesting - certainly does not justify bumping - quiet burying down below best.

    Of course I did. I'm actually in NYC a couple of weeks from now so I might go check it out in person.

    Most of those jackets look a little noisy to me. Mind, I'm 5'5", and have to avoid the dreaded PeeWee Herman syndrome.

    I'm only a couple of inches taller than you are, and I've found (through experience) that the cut and silhouette of the jacket matter a lot more than the patterns themselves. That's not to say that you cannot have flattering patterns; just that the effect of "shortening" patterns is overrated.
