Profile

Michael Mantegna was a practicing lawyer when, traveling through Asia, he stumbled upon something that changed his life: tailor-made suits. Enamored with their craftsmanship, fabrics, and low prices, he made a few more speculative trips through Asia and then called an entrepreneur friend, Andrew Wells. The resulting Michael Andrews Bespoke outfits Manhattan’s young professionals in English and Italian weaves, many of which are fitted in-store, stitched in China to keep the cost down, and then altered by the shop’s resident tailors. The entire process takes six to eight weeks. M.A.B.’s trademark suit revolves around a one-button, thin-collared jacket with Chinese silk lining; clients can choose the inner and outer patterns as well as thread color and button type (wood, horn, or mother-of-pearl). Custom shirts, ties, made-to-order shoes, and artistic cuff links round out the workplace wardrobe. A lavish wet bar makes it easy to linger in the shop’s cozy sitting room, though it may also make for a tricky trip up from the basement-level storefront.
