For Men…Again. The Workshop @Louis_Boston

Others may try, but none measure up.

Come see for yourself.

On Friday, May 16th and Saturday, May 17th, Louis Boston will host two great days for men…again. Since 1996, long before “Made to Measure” became a “thing,” we have been pulling out all the stops to create events that bring the makers of the finest men’s clothing in the world – to you, all in an effort to help you define your personal style.

It’s okay to ask for help.

Imagine a place, a mini-Pitti Uomo, where the finest fashion houses in the world come together in one spectacular location (Louis), with views to die for (Boston), so you can have an EXCLUSIVE preview of their Fall 2014 Collections.

I invite you to come in for a light bite, and stay to meet the brilliant minds behind Kiton, Belvest, Massimo Bizzocchi, Harry’s of London, PTO1, Valentini, Brioni, Tintoria Mattei, and Sartoria Partenopea. Men’s sartorial fashion at it’s very finest. We are honored to have them here and look forward to introducing you to them.

As if I haven’t made things enticing enough, I’ll let you know that most of what you’ll see here you won’t find anyplace else. What you’ll discover at Louis; the fabrics, the colors, the cuts – simply won’t be available in the “Made to Measure” book that everyone else gets. What you’ll see is only for me, and I bring it all here for two days, only for you.

I created this workshop because I am truly in love with menswear. The tradition of bespoke is a dying art, it needs to be honored, and you can’t do what we’re inviting you here to do on the Internet. If your instinct is to “google it,” I ask you to join us and let us educate you about what it really means to have a garment that has been completely handmade for your body. It’s three-dimensional, it’s molded to you, and there IS a difference.

When you’re in Italy the tailors there speak about menswear, and suits in particular, in hours; as in how many hours it takes to create one. It’s important to know when having this conversation that when they “create” a “24 hour sui” a machine will never touch your garment. Every piece of fabric is cut and sown by hand. Period. It will fit you, and only you.

Once you understand and appreciate that, I promise, you’ll never go back.

Next in line is a “12 hour suit” – one that is made by hand, but certain elements: the buttons, the lining or the pockets may have been added by machine. Still a distinct garment, created specifically for you, and worthy of a look at Louis.

After that, the suits you see in department and menswear stores across the country have been manufactured in factories. They have been sewn on machines and produced for the masses.

Needless to say, you won’t find those at Louis. Not for the workshop, not ever. Nothing we do is for the masses.

If you haven’t figured it out by now, we do things our own way at Louis. Always have. Always will.

Like I said, come see for yourself.
