Ralph Behk Sample Sale

— Tue, 12th September 2017 —

Regardless of the season, in NYC there’s never a wrong time to have a fine tailored suit demonstrating what a good quality looks like. Our friends at Ralph Behk will host their first sample sale Wednesday through Friday, 9/13-9/15, at their flagship location on Madison Ave. Founded two years ago, this brand manages to encompass edginess yet with a classic style that gentlemen can wear anytime. All pieces are hand stitched by Martin Greenfield, one of America’s leading tailors. Mr. Greenfield clientele includes major brands such as DKNY and Rag & Bone, and individuals such as US president Eisenhower, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama; actor Paul Newman, former Knicks star Patrick Ewing, and Michael Bloomberg. All of Behk’s materials are handpick requiring 179 steps and over 20 hours of labor in completion. This results in a suit with bold and detailed fabric allowing gentlemen to stand out and display the timeliness of a quality suit. To check out this sample sale offering, be sure to RSVP at sale@ralphbehk.com for deep discounts on suits, sportcoats, and trousers.

The Future of Fashion

— Thu, 7th September 2017 —

Future of Fashion

It’s New York Fashion Week. If you pay attention to the seasons, you know it’s not what it used to be. Fewer designers are doing traditional shows and more are simultaneously featuring womenswear and menswear. Even if you don’t follow that intently, it’s clear that fashion is transforming with the way people shop.

As drivers of these trends, our friends at ShopDrop and Tabu App are partnering to host “The Future of Fashion.” The event will feature five emerging designers and five technology startups to showcase new innovations in the industry.

Luckily for us Choosy Beggars, many of these changes are making top quality merchandise much more attainable. Notably, Nineteenth Amendment is one of the participating startups. They provide a platform for emerging designers to sell made-to-order clothing directly to consumers. The new brands get broad exposure and shoppers get items priced below typical retail. It’s a win for everyone.

Check out the event to learn more about where fashion is heading. It also wouldn’t be a NYFW event without drinks and some unexpected surprises. Purchase a ticket and get $25 off with the code: THECHOOSYBEGGAR.
