Special Features

  • Bespoke


When Aaron Black became tired of seeing the same suit silhouettes at many major design houses, he decided to set up shop and do things his own way. The London-born former art student specializes in bespoke men’s and women’s suits and shirts that are all handmade in New York. Of course, these pieces will cost you a pretty penny. A bespoke suit, crafted from some of the finest fabrics, like Dormeuil and Holland & Sherry, costs about $3,500. After several rounds of fittings in the quirky, white-subway-tiled boutique, clients can pick up their finished pieces in three to four weeks. In the meantime, shop Black's selection of limited-edition shirts (he only makes seven of each), handmade ties, and handmade shoes and hats. Unisex day-to-night pajama suits, something of a White Chalk signature, are also on sale for $450. And for smaller additions to your ensemble, try Heidi Gardner skull cuff links and tuxedo studs, or, for an unusually playful touch, Lego-adorned cuff links and tie clips.
