    According to White Collar Wiki

    "The show's costume designer Stephanie Maslansky openly discusses the makings of Neal Caffrey's wardrobe on White Collar's official website. She says his look is 'mid-century gone modern' with suits by designers John Varvatos and Paul Smith (but let's not forget about his vintage Sy Devore suit from the very first episode). His tie bars are vintage, and his ties are also almost always vintage and bought at Manhattan's Star Struck and Cheap Jack's."

    I know Brooks Brothers is mentioned a ton in the show(referring to the FBI agents' suits), Thomas Pink shirts shows up in an episode or two, and I think there is a Valentino reference thrown in somewhere. I believe there is a good amount of Varvatos in Mozzie's wardrobe as well.

    I have to give much-deserved respect to Store Supply Warehouse in Shreveport, LA. These guys are AMAZING! You may remember that my mannequin was destroyed. Well, I placed an order with SSW on Thursday afternoon. I am now looking at my new mannequin. This is the third order that I have placed with SSW. I have yet to have anything take over 24 hrs for delivery. And, no, I do not pay for one-day shipping. Their warehouse is 452 miles from my house and they still get it here pronto. It's awesome!

    The suits on 'Suits' and 'Hannibal' are all custom done by a local shop in Toronto called Garrison Bespoke. (I believe the first 2 seasons Harvey wore TF though)

    Just finished the series on Netflix. I noticed Mozzie wearing a Cucinelli shirt and pretty sure a Zegna sportcoat in one of the last episodes.

    Love Hannibal's suits / jackets. The fabrics are so damn nice, and doze peak lapels are on point.

    Do you know if Garrison outsources there work? I know they're pretty tight-lipped about their operations..

    Just to name a few common brands.

    Mozzie is all over the place, a good amount of his stuff is Varvatos, most jackets and such are vintage.

    Peter is Brooks Brothers, so much Brooks Brothers.

    I could discuss white collar for hours but I'll get us back to thrifts with my crap two pickups.

    does that answer your question indirectly? :p

    [​IMG] gonna apologize in advance i won't be able to divulge.

    but i will say this; to my understanding (and i could be wrong), even the tailors in the uk back in the day aren't "attached" to a business. afaik when the row was lined with shops, i think tailors took on jobs from different houses at the same time. obviously that's not the case now for the big names with cutters and what not doing stuff exclusively for one house, but i think from what i've read that was how they did things a few decades ago.
