When I visited New York to shop the world’s finest collections of men’s clothing, I was struck by the quality of Samuelsohn in relation to the price. While not inexpensive, Samuelsohn captures that elusive quality of value that so many seek now in men’s suits and sport coats. For that alone, many stores would be proud to carry Samuelsohn. But what struck me as more special at Samuelsohn was their ability to channel the finest fabrics and cuts from our Italian brethren. An extraordinary selection of linens, silks, cashmeres and wools in a very vibrant palette of the season reminded me of the best of Napoli or Milano. New suit and sport coat models with tapered sides and higher armholes feel closer to the body but offer more freedom of movement, while the extensive handwork in a Samuelsohn piece allows it to become a part of you.
