Rows of sleek, stately suits greet customers to the elegant stateside flagship of this Italian menswear line. From the blockish, low-lying furniture to the purple-paisley silk ties, the shop effortlessly blends the classic and contemporary. The timeless black-and-gray suits, the mainstay of the collection, are stitched in Milan and can be altered on-site in as little as ten minutes. But some prefer the blue or khaki glen-plaid affairs offset by bright-colored neckties—accessorized with an elegant pair of stirrup- or tassel-topped loafers. For made-to-order suits, the staff takes measurements and sends the specs to Milan for tailoring; after-hours appointments are available for clients who can’t break away from the workplace. Canali also goes beyond the boardroom, with a Hamptons-worthy selection of weekend wear such as crisp linen suits, jeans, polos, and driving moccasins.
