Believe it or not, Washington, DC has become a destination for professional men’s clothing in recent years, from  high-profile retailers Bonobos and Dutch-based Suit Supply (and the HMX Group’s regrettably short-lived Streets of Georgetown) to custom tailors Michael Andrews Bespoke and Alton Lane.  Add to that home-grown talent from the likes of Hugh & Crye, and you have an emerging community catering to modern professional men.  This new energy builds on a rich history of style in the District, including tailors and retail professionals such as Geoffrey Lewis who have been in the business for decades and who are also well-worth getting to know better.
