Passionately rational. I can think of no better way to describe the essence of a gentleman. A gentleman does not use his rationale to determine why he should not have that which his passions cry out for. Rather, his rational prowess is used to bring about the fulfillment of these desires in a satisfying manner. This concept is expressed in his cheeky charm, confident stride, thirst for knowledge, and, let us not forget, the adornment of an exquisite Bespoke suit.
I am excited to report a gem I discovered on a recent trip to New York. I was offered an experience that not only ignited my desires, but appealed to my reason. I was left utterly satisfied, yearning for a return visit. I am speaking of an exquisite boutique located in the heart of the West Village, Doyle Mueser. Amber Doyle and Jake Mueser designed the collection, and this shop catered specifically to the needs of the gentleman, providing all he might need for an excursion about town - suits, shirts, ties, cufflinks, other trinkets - as well as some very tasteful travel bags. And yet, what sets this shop a cut above is its emphasis on the individual.
Attention to detail and an eye for aesthetic excellence await, should you choose to have one of their master craftsmen prepare a suit for you. Customers are encouraged to select fabrics and cuts that express their personal motifs. The process is more than an interaction between client and tailor, according to Jake Mueser, it is a "collaboration." Once your fabric preferences are settled it is time for fitting, which consists of five different measurements taken over the course of six to ten weeks to ensure your suit fits perfectly. To assure quality, all Bespoke suits are hand-sewn in New York City. During assembly, accents can be added to heighten your suit's individuation - decorative pick stitches are always a nice touch. As you can see, the first time you don your suit, and accompanying accessories, it will be a genuine expression of your creative genius. Something beautiful created by your desire to accentuate your excellence. In the suit, something that can be worn to any affair and easily fit the occasion, we find a poignant appeal to the rationale. Jake Mueser and Amber Doyle provide the gentleman a service that not only appeals to his essence, but mirrors it.
Doyle Mueser Bespoke is located at 19 Christopher Street, New York, NY 10014.
