The definition of luxury in the world of clothing is personal service where the staff really understands your individual taste combined with the best in fabrics that fit you perfectly. Marc Allen Fine Clothiers continues its mission of providing the highest level of garments while providing the sort of client attention where each person feels special. Over the last year the flagship Providence location has been joined by a Newport shop to serve the needs of the luxury clothing market in South County. Add to that their custom showrooms in New York and Boston (by appointment only) and the mobile unit that travels anywhere to provide concierge home and business service, and you realize how expansive Marc Allen’s operation has become.
Sitting in the second-floor clubroom with style experts Will and Colin, they discuss how the recently revamped made-to-measure line is allowing for the best fit at a price-point that’s accessible. Colin explains, “we worked with a European firm and designed our own models which are proprietary just for us. We took a lot of time honing this fit and style and we are very pleased with the result.” He told me the story of a client who visited the Newport location and had brought clothes he’d purchased at a luxury department store. While the fabrics of these labels were great, the fit was not, and luckily the folks at Marc Allen were able to correct the problem. The benefit of purchasing the made-to-measure line from this shop is they have those same high-end fabrics, but your expert fitting allows you to look fantastic at a price point that begins at $1,395 for a suit.
The spring lines are about to arrive and business owner Marc Streisand is heading over to Italy to do some research on the best stuff to bring back. And with the cold New England winter, it’s great to start thinking ahead for your warmer weather wardrobe. The handmade bespoke tailoring continues to serve the needs for the finest in custom clothing, and note that the shop also has other elements like socks, belts, ties, sportswear and accessories. At Marc Allen Fine Clothiers you’ll enjoy personal attention and you’ll look your very best.
