I recently had the pleasure of shooting Mr. Wilcox of Lord Willy's for my weekly feature on 'The Daily Details' for Details.com. Prior to photographing him, we had the chance to sit and converse on subjects ranging from style to the new Spring/Summer Collection at Lord Willy's in New York City.
The first thing that stroke me about the shop was the venue itself. Just as meticulous as a bespoke suit everything was well selected from the overall decor to the placement of the collection. The tailoring speaks for itself, traditional English cuts with a hint of dandyism needs no hoopla just a link ... www.LordWilly's.com.
I have the opportunity to visit countless shops from off the rack to bespoke, I've come to realize each shop caters to a specific person / group / personality. In my mind Lord Willy's is the perfect businessman's upgrade place.
If you should be in the SOHO / NOLITA area in New York City, swing by and even if you don't pick up a suit, shirt, tie, etc... you may be offered a beer and are guaranteed a treat for your sartorial eye.
