Just this past weekend, the team at Papillon Cravatta, our spin-off Bespoke Event Company held their very first Bespoke Event for men. We wanted to keep it small, to select persons that appreciate bespoke clothing. We had a wonderful turnout and with close to 30 guests it was a success!
We wanted to thank Theophilus Cooper of Royce Redding and the owner Dan Oke for making sure that our patrons were cared for.
The event was held at the Bridgeport Innovation Center in Bridgeport, CT. An area were many local artists and musicians have their studios and work spaces. We love the urbanized vibe at the Made in Bridgeport Studio, owed by Robin Gilmore and Gerald Moore, who hosted our event and for the lovely vintage cufflink selection that Robin curated and put on display for our clients to purchase (A special thanks to them!).
We had a blast and our guests came from Bridgeport, Norwalk, Stratford, CT, New York City and as far as Atlanta, GA. We have many more events to come, but as we stress, our events are curated and sad to say everyone is not invited but if you would like to be considered for attendance, just send an email and we will put you on the e-mailing list.
EDB will also setup at various locations by request where men want to spend a little more but lack the access to Bespoke clothes.
We are also looking for corporate sponsors. EDB is redefining men’s fashion by bringing true Bespoke (not Made to Measure) men’s fashion events away from NYC and other big cities and having them held in areas where redevelopment is needed. Imagine custom suits made from fabrics curated from the best fabric houses in Italy and England in your backyard.
Bespoke suits take an average of 6 weeks and shirts an average of 5 weeks. Our prices are far better than what you will find in Mitchell’s of Westport or any other Bespoke clothing maker (Brooks Brothers, Paul Stuart, Paul Smith) and with similar or higher quality fabrics and linings that you choose yourself from our selection and of course you will be fitted by one of our professionals.
