The only thing better than Black Lapel custom suiting is getting a 50 dollar discount.
It’s no secret that Modern Fellows has been sweet on Black Lapel custom menswear for some time. I first profiled Black Lapel’s co-founders in a September 2012 piece and followed that up with a review of my first Black Lapel custom suit, a charcoal-grey number that “feels complete, personal, and like a suit ought to fit — much more than the sum of its parts.”
In 2014, I chronicled how Black Lapel updated its fit and fabrics and produced a series of stunning short-run custom suiting options for its Fall/Winter collection. In 2016, after an embarrassing wardobe malfunction abroad, I was thankful for Black Lapel’s essential grey suit.
Other reviewers, including on Reddit, Styleforum and Yelp are similarly complementary of Black Lapel Custom Clothiers, and particularly the process of visiting their NYC showroom, where stylists will take your measurements.
Modern Fellows’ readers can get a discount of $50 off their first custom suit from Black Lapel Custom Clothiers using code FTOMODERN.
