Next week — beginning Tuesday, 3/8 — Florentine bespoke tailor Simone Abbarchi will be camped out at the Michelangelo Hotel in Midtown, seeing as many new and existing clients as he can manage. Said Scott Schuman, a.k.a. The Sartorialist, of Abbarchi: “What’s great about Simone is that he’s both old-school and hip.”
Abbarchi’s shirts start at $150, suits at $1,100, ties at $90. He also does cashmere sweaters, which start at $550, and pants for $290. But, the first 10 guys to mention “The Beggar” are guaranteed 10% off their entire purchase.
Update: Abbarchi’s kindly agreed to sweeten the deal! Now, the first *15* guys to mention “The Beggar” are guaranteed *20%* off their entire purchase!
