The other day while walking around with my friend Adrian Farquharson of Limite Magazine, I came across a really great store called “House of Savoia”. What caught my eye was the decor of this place, it had everything I love; Vintage, Leopard, motorcycles, leather jackets, antiques, and more. This place is a dream come true for men who wear suits by day and leather jackets by night. Michele Savoia is the owner and mastermind behind House of Savoia and happens to be, hands down, the best tailor in NYC. Just ask Esquire, GQ, TimeOut, XXL, and New York magazine. His own personal style deserves recognition because he wears a suit exactly how men wore suits from the 1930s to the 50s, he can also look like a T-bird straight out of grease while he rides his motorcycles. Point is..If you want advice on fashion, a good suit made, if you want your suit tailored, if you want advice on how to wear a suit and style a suit, Michele is your man. He is also a professor and teaches college kids the art of tailoring and styling a suit. I actually attended one of his sessions at his shop with a few other people from the fashion institute and within one sitting I learned how to tailor a mens suit myself, how it should fit, and the business aspect of fashion. Now whenever I see a guy in a suit, I notice little details of how it should fit and if some guy has got it all wrong. Michele is truly an inspiration and I am so glad I met him, we have so much in common I could sit there for hours just talking to him about the eras and fashion. Check out photos of Michele Savoia’s shop and I inside.
These are some excerpts from Magazines that featured Michele.This guy is no joke. I believe he should teach all men in NY how to dress.

How beautiful is this photo? I have seen it before and he has it at his shop!Michele found these magazines at a flea market, EVERY SINGLE ISSUE. He purchased it for cheap and they are in perfect condition inside of these frames.

It was great to meet Michele, I adore his shop and his wonderful personality. This will definitely not be the last post on Michele Savoia.
If you were wondering what I was wearing. Here are some candid shots of me and my little man.
Rex is far more stylish than me. Look at his Mechanic shirt I wore a guess top, Erin Fetherston pants, Irregular choice spectators, a Betsey Johnson Bag, and my vintage Beaver bowler hat.My bowler hat is one of my most prized possessions.
