This is a sampling of cover art from 25 years of the Custom Shop’s brochures. Some contain original art while others are based on Apparel Art illustrations from menswear’s grand age of upper-class men’s style and fashion illustration – the 1930’s to the 1950’s.
Each year the Custom Shop produces two such style manifestos which typically feature limited quantity worsted cloths with AF woven selvedges intended for the loyalists’ bespoken togs.
These exclusive designs represent the purist expression of the firm’s taste and fashion thinking while passing along those savings derived from buying directly from the mills. Also featured in these seasonal trumpets-to-arms is a co-ordinating collection of unique haberdashery, footwear, and ready-to-wear.
