A Men's wear & lifestyle appreciation blog





Master tailor Martin Greenfield, patron saint of dapper “Gatsby-style” men’s fashion, is the man behind the most well-dressed movie stars and presidents. He also has an incredible story of survival and success.

“Every stitch in our suit is handmade,” Greenfield told The Daily. “The most important thing taught to me is quality with intrinsic value. And that is the key to everything in life.”

 A Holocaust survivor, the 83-year-old Greenfield immigrated to the United States in September 1947, after his uncles in America contacted him through a displaced persons camp. “In those days they only had troop ships,” Greenfield said. “So they sent me a ticket and I came over on the Ernie Pyle.”
