After taking a look at the current state of the tailored clothing market from a business standpoint, we wanted to see how this translated into the real world. So, on a crisp fall afternoon, we set out to Bryant Park to observe what the everyday guy was wearing. What we saw was an overwhelming amount of navy blue suits, but we did find some interesting pieces on our search.

 

Here we speak to 8 men about where they purchase tailored clothing, how often they do so, and why they dress up.
