By now you’ve heard of renowned NYC haberdasher Freemans Sporting Club, but you probably haven’t heard of their secret bespoke suiting studio...

Usually only discussed in hushed tones among the well-informed—and well-dressed—the studio is hidden behind a faux bookcase upstairs, somewhere above their eponymous restaurant (sorry, we can’t tell you any more than that). Concealed within: a menswear dream world of bench-made bespokery, cigars, scotch and a master tailor ready to make you a fully canvassed made-to-measure suit.

Luckily, our friends over at UrbanDaddy Perks have your in.

Getting First Shot at FSC’s New Custom Suit

Freemans

We spend a good deal of time gushing over brightly colored pants and double-breasted blazers, but there’s something to be said for having a good knock-around suit at your disposal.

It’s the workhorse in any modern man’s closet and worth investing a little extra in.

A prime example: the latest custom offering from the neo-rustic Americana-philes at Freemans Sporting Club—exclusively on presale through our friends at UrbanDaddy Perks.

The gents at Freemans spent nearly a year perfecting this 7 oz tropical wool American-made suit in the requisite shade of charcoal gray—and it’s got all the bells and whistles you’d expect, including a fully canvassed jacket. Since it’s a custom deal, you’ll have to be in NYC to meet with FSC’s on-premises master tailor in their bespoke studio... hidden behind an upstairs bookshelf in their eponymous restaurant.

Which will play out a lot like this slick video they’ve put together of the process.»
